Gary Alan Dunn, born June 25th, 1949 passed away unexpectedly November 16th, 2019. He was surrounded by his loving family who finds comfort in knowing that he has joined his heavenly father and can once again hold his infant daughter, Sarah. Born to Joseph and Lucille Dunn of Kalamazoo, Gary was fortunate to have his brother Barry (Phyllis) Dunn as both a role model and protector. The two built a bond that lasted a lifetime. A graduate of Loy Norrix High School, Gary joined the army in April 1970 and was quickly promoted to Sergeant while serving in Vietnam. Gary went on to work at Stryker, Farnsworth, Midway Chevrolet, Rex Hayes, and most recently Centerpoint Church. Gary met his beautiful wife Linda through their work at Stryker. On September 23rd they celebrated 42 years together. His greatest joy was spending time with his children Laura (Kevin) Slater and Jake (Shanna) Dunn and grandchildren Eric, Jackson and Alaster. Gary always made his kids his number one priority. Whether it was choir concerts and cheer leading events, or the myriad of sports teams that he coached, Dad's presence was always a strong one. He was passionate about baseball, especially the Detroit Tigers, and treasured the many years he spent with family and friends out on Pine Lake. As a member of Centerpoint Church he found strength through prayer and his faith in the Lord. Always a positive light, there was never a doubt how much Gary loved his friends and family. Be it a text, call or hug, it was evident that he was constantly thinking of those he loved. Gary will be greatly missed. A funeral service will be held at Centerpoint Church (2345 10th St N, Kalamazoo 49009) on Tuesday, November 26th at 11:30am. Family will receive visitors prior to the service beginning at 9:30am. There will be an on-site luncheon immediately after the funeral. In lieu of flowers the family has requested consideration for a donation to Gary's wife, Linda via GoFundMe. All donations will go directly to Linda Dunn to help with funeral and medical expenses. Additional information can be found on the GoFundMe webpage for Gary.
