Obituary of Robert Clifford Dunn

Robert Clifford Dunn, 61, passed away May 11, 2020 in Napavine, Wash. He was born in Chehalis, Wash. to Clifford and Neva Dunn.


Bob attended Lewis County Jr. Academy in Chehalis, and Chehalis High School.  He received his diesel mechanic certificate from The Evergreen State College in Olympia. He married Karol Thayer on July 3, 1988, in Mossyrock at Riffe Lake.


Bob was a superb craftsman and loved being a general contractor, building in Lewis County and Olympia.  He excelled in carpentry and remodels; subcontractors loved following him on jobs because his work was pristine. 


He loved cars, motorcycles, and dirt bike riding.  He also was an avid water and snow skier.  He had a boat and would spend his off time water skiing and fishing at Mayfield and Riffe Lake. He and Karol had horses they rode.


Bob was well thought of in the community.  He loved people and would help anyone.  He developed a love for plants and trees through his mother; he planted numerous varieties on his and Karol’s property.


The love of his life was his daughter, Alyx. The two of them spent hours jumping on the tramp and doing projects together.


He is survived by his former wife, Karol Dunn of Chehalis; daughter, Alyxandra Heather Dunn of Chehalis; brother, Tom Dunn (JoAnn) of Denver, Colorado; sisters, Patrice Baker of Chehalis, and Heather Chastain (Jeff) of Mossyrock; mother, Neva Dunn of Chehalis; nieces, Breanna (Dunn) Fischer of Denver, Beth Baker of Chehalis; and nephew, Rob Baker of Chehalis. He was predeceased by his father, Clifford Dunn; brother-in-law, William Baker; and nephew, Bryan Dunn.
