Obituary for Wayne J. Dunn

Wayne J.  Dunn
Wayne J. Dunn, Jr. was born in Brownsville, Texas to Lt. Colonel Wayne Dunn, Sr. and Elizabeth Dunn on Sept. 2, 1935. He was called to Glory on January 31st, 2018.

He served in the U.S. Army and the Army National Guard before attending the University of Minnesota, where he obtained a degree in Forestry. After summer internships on the Medicine Bow N.F., Wayne was employed by the U.S. Forest Service on the Rio Grande and San Juan National Forests, retiring in 1995.
Wayne married June Dunn (nee Markgraf) on March 29, 1959. They had three children; Mary Fink of Long Beach, CA; Matthew Dunn of Bellingham, WA and Margaret Duerr of Orange, CA.

Wayne was devoted to his wife and family and treasured times with them. He was a faithful member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and served there in many capacities. An avid outdoorsman, he relished the beauty of God’s creation. He enjoyed camping, hunting, fishing and boating as well as traveling with June around the U.S. and Europe. On his last camping trip, a severe bacterial infection ravaged his body and claimed his life.
