      Major Dunn went to be with the Lord on Thursday, October 7, 2010.

      He was born January 27, 1921 in Qualls, OK. He attended White Oak School and Draughn’s Business College. He joined the U.S. Army in 1936 and served three years and was called back to the service in 1939 after Franklin Roosevelt called a national emergency. He witnessed the bombing of Pearl Harbor and spent the days after looking for survivors, manning big artillery guns, and anything that was asked of him, which also included flying hours on end in planes looking for enemy submarines.

      He also fought on the island of Saipan. He was sent home in 1945 because the war was ending. He came home and met the love of his life, Christine Cookson and was married.

      He went to work at the Veterans Administration Medical Center and also was an aero medic flying out of Davis Field. He retired from the Veterans Administration in 1978. He spent the biggest part of his life serving our country and the men and women who fought for our country and was a proud American until the day he died.

      He is survived by one daughter, Linda Toney and her husband, Earnie; two grandchildren, Heather Sheets and husband, Jamie, Evan Toney and wife, Kris; three great grandchildren, Katurah, Kaytlynn and Emerson Toney all of Muskogee; many nieces and nephews.
