January 19, 1927 – September 10, 2012
Robert James Dunn passed away peacefully on Monday, September 10, 2012 at the age of 85 years surrounded by his loved ones.
A loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, Bob will be fondly remembered by his children, Mary Lynn, Jim (Jane) and Patt (Craig); grandchildren, Molly (Chris), Jeffrey and David and two great-grandchildren, Bradley and Madelyn.
Bob was born in Saskatoon and spent his youth living in Saskatchewan and the Okanagan and eventually married his wife Evelyn (Lynn) in Vancouver and they enjoyed sixty-three years together until she passed away in February of 2011. Bob worked in the Oil Patch in Alberta for many years where he accumulated valued friends and fuel for his book “As The Grass Grew Greener” which was a tribute to the oil patch. He loved to write and was an accomplished story teller. Bob was also an avid golfer and he and Lynn enjoyed many years at the Vernon Golf and Country Club, after they retired in the Okanagan.
