On February 9th, 2023 Robert Dunn of Pryor, Oklahoma passed away at the age of 63. He was born on February 14th to Lloyd and Alice Dunn in Long Beach, California. Robert grew up in California and often shared fond memories of climbing orange trees in his childhood. He joined the U.S Navy and after his time in the service he moved to Oklahoma to be closer to family. In Oklahoma Robert, aka Rosebud, met the love of his life, Donna Dunn aka Pumpkin. In 1983 they married and together raised three wonderful children. Robert attended Rogers State University while working as an EMT and later while raising his family. He also had a pool cleaning business and eventually went on to work for the City of Tulsa for 18 years at AB Jewel Water Treatment Plant. While managing a full time career he did numerous home improvement projects with his daughters, Holly Donnellan and Amelia Happy. Through these projects he showed them how to have pride in building something and caring for your family. After retiring he practiced Kuk Sool Won, Korean martial arts, with his son Ryan Dunn and earned his brown black belt. Robert also loved gardening and would go all out every summer growing an impressive variety of fruits and vegetables. He happily shared what he grew with others. He had a great love for Christ and was searching for God’s purpose for direction.
