David Dunn

GREENWOOD - David Dunn died Jan. 29, 2015. He was surrounded by his family that loved him dearly. He was born on Nov. 4, 1945, in Birmingham, England, to Charley and Rachel Dunn. At 6 months old his mother brought him to America on a ship, so they could be with his dad who had arrived home from the Navy. After spending a wonderful childhood in Crane, his family moved to Greenwood when he was a sophomore. This is when 52 years ago he met his bride on a church hayride. He graduated from Stanton High where sports and stock shows were his love. He then went on to Angelo State University. In 1966 he married Carolyn Bryant. Theirs was a marriage made in heaven where they were blessed with two children and five grandchildren. His immediate and extended family brought him joy from the Lord. His knowledge was broad, and he loved teaching them everything: how to play a sport, how to nurture and raise pigs, how to fix almost anything, and how to be happy in any situation. He, with his tough exterior, will be forever remembered for his gentle, kind and happy ways. Funeral services were at Greenwood Baptist Church on Feb. 2. Interment followed at Greenwood Cemetery. He is survived by his wife, Carolyn Dunn; children Mark and Cindy Stroud and Jeff and Laura Dunn; grandchildren Meagan Dunn, Ainslee Dunn, Tate Stroud, Lexy Stroud, and Emma Dunn; his parents, Charley and Rachel Dunn; sisters, Kathleen Alderson and husband the late Hugh Alderson, Joy Armstrong and husband Wayne, and Maureen Martin and husband Clint; and 19 nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his son, Jay David Dunn; his grandson, Jay Mark Stroud; his parents, Charley and Rachel Dunn; Father and Mother-in-law, Alvey and Virginia Bryant; brother and sister-in-laws, Alton and Judy Bryant, Billy Bryant, and Pete Bryant. Arrangements were under the direction of Nalley-Pickle and Welch Funeral Home and Crematory. Online condolences can be made at www.npwelch.com.
