Jarrett James “Rett” Dossey, 2, of Weatherford, Texas, left this world to be with his Jesus on Wednesday, September 2, 2020. A public graveside service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, September 11, 2020, at the Necessity Cemetery with John Kinman officiating the service. The final resting place for Rett will be at the Necessity Cemetery under the direction of the staff at Melton-Kitchens Funeral Home.

Jarrett James Dossey was born on September 11, 2017, in Weatherford, Texas, to parents Jarrett Edward and Shaden Marc Campbell Dossey. From the very first time folks laid eyes on Rett, he brought a smile to everyone’s face. That smile has not dissipated one moment. Rett would continually do things to keep everyone on their toes and that smile on their face, whether it was digging in the freezer for ice cubes to feed his dog, Hutch, or chasing after his kitty, Stripes. Rett loved to sit with his Pa on the mower and assist with the mowing. Relocating coons that he, Jocee, Pa, and Sho Sho had trapped was always an adventure. Rett loved the idea of re-homing them to a safer place on Coon Trail Road. He would always say, “we are coon-trappers.” At the end of a long day with daddy and momma, it always included some tickling with his true belly laugh!

Rett would always repeat everything thing his big sis, Jocee, said and attempted to copy everything she did. Rett and Jocee enjoyed their time together, even if Rett went to slamming doors. He loved to play “slam the door,” even if everyone else wanted to run in fear of losing their mind. If you just bear with his little game of slamming the door, it wasn’t long until he ran off to something else, which usually included sniffing out a loaf of bread so he could enjoy another piece of toast. When Rett was not running around ninety to nothing, he enjoyed filling his belly. He was not a picky eater and ate anything you sat in front of him.

Some of his favorite things consisted of Aunt T and Uncle Bubba taking him for a ride on the Ranger, while petting Clarese the deer, picking flowers, swinging and singing a song that he would make up at the top of his lungs, swimming with I-Lu and Pa, making sure they always took notice of his tricks, Ring Pops, doing chores with Pa, as well as snuggling with mama, daddy, and Jocee. Rett was known for always stealing their spot in bed when they moved away, while thinking if he covered his head under the blankets he would not get caught. He loved his visits to his LuLu and playing in her living room floor with whatever she could throw together to keep them entertained.

Rett was so excited to be starting school at Learning Tree this fall. He even had a new backpack with his name on it, prepared and ready to go with his school supplies. He would tell everyone it was, “My tum, Jocee,” meaning that he finally got to do what his big sis got to do for several years before him.

Rett is survived by his parents, Jarrett Edward and Shaden Dossey; sister and best friend, Jocee Adelaide Dossey; Grandparents, Mark and Shone Campbell (Sho Sho and Pa), and Lesa Dossey Simpson (Lu Lu); Great-Grandparents, Joyce Campbell, Ann Miears; Uncles, Shiler Campbell (I-Lu) and Clint Dossey. Rett was preceded in death by his grandfather, Gary Dossey.

Memorials can be made to the Necessity Church for a playground fund and can be left at the Melton Kitchens office. Condolences for Rett can be made at
