  2. Stanley Smith & Wendy James-Smith :

    How sad I am to hear of the passing of Mr. Dunnet. Growing up as a neighbour of Mr. Dunnet, he epotimized to me what it is to be a gentleman and professional. I remember as a very small boy repeatedly bumping into him with my tricycle (physically) on one occaision as he strolled the back lane between our houses. With stogie clenched in mouth, he looked down and with a big smile said, “you’ll learn what a tort action is if you keep that up son.” A simple encounter that forever is etched in my mind telling of what a gentle, yet strong, character Mr Dunnet has.

    With deep sorrow,

    Stan Smith

  3. Bob was a neighbor to treasure. His quiet sense of humour appeared so unexpectedly on occasions that he made everyone in the room laugh. The cigar was always remembered by my children when they thought of “Mr. Dunnet”. I always remember fondly the dinners with Lutie and Bob. They were what made living in Lakeview so very pleasurable.

    My deepest sympathy.

    Jean Smith and the Smith family
