Well, Gawly! Alvin Evan Dunn, age 79 went to be with Jesus on December 14th, 2021. He and his wife, Paula made their home in Castle Rock Washington. Al was on his way to help a friend when he passed, and he was known for his willingness to help anyone or offer advice and a listening ear. Al never met a stranger and was happiest with a Pepsi in one hand a tool in the other.
A man of many talents and the owner of even more cars, his occupations included dredging, real estate, auto mechanic, heavy equipment mechanic, building contractor, handyman, logging, electrician, welder, truck driver, commercial fisherman…to name a few. Some of his hobbies included traveling (watch out if you said GO when Al was around) camping with his kids and grandkids, reading, flying, scuba diving, playing games with friends (He loved card games) and anything to do with Seahawks!
His family invites you to celebrate this incredible man’s life on December 22nd, 2021, at 11am at the Castle Rock Nazarene Church 456 Pioneer Avenue, NE. Castle Rock Washington 98611, where we can share stories of his escapades and adventures and sense of humor. Christmas wreaths or related as flowers would be appreciated.
As an Air Force Veteran, there will be a graveside military honors ceremony at Willamette National Cemetery on January 25th, 2022, at 11:30am for family only. 11800 S.E. Mt. Scott Blvd., Happy Valley, Oregon 97086
