He raised registered Hereford cattle for about 20 years and was an active member of the Registered Hereford Cattle Association. 
     Along with farming, he also spent 25 years in the hardware business, where he received a Professional Hardwareman Degree from the National Retail Hardware Association. While working there, he made many friends. Their friendship was his prized possession.
     Bill was preceded in death by his devoted wife of 60 years, Bernice Dent Dunn; his parents, Lewis and Ida Dunn; sisters, Ocie Dunn Tinney, Blanch Dunn, Genevieve Dunn Morrison, Gladys Dunn Mace, Lucille Dunn, and brothers, Lloyd, Percy, Harvey, Gordon and Glen Dunn.
     Bill is survived by his daughter, Judy Dunn Johnson (Tom); granddaughters, Lynnette Bechtel (Kevin) and Julie Williams (Doug); great-grandchildren, Blaine Morton (Nicole), Deidre White (Chase), Joshua Hayden (Amber) and Brandon Hayden; and great great-granddaughter, Ryleigh Hayden. Also, a special neighbor friend, Natasha Hoffman Cutlip, who brought fun, love and sunshine into his life as he watched her grow up. He leaves behind a lot of nieces, nephews and cousins, and a host of friends and neighbors that he would not want left out.
     Funeral services were held 3 pm, Sunday, October 22, 2017 at Long Run Baptist Church, Canfield, WV with Rev. Robey Godfrey officiating. Burial followed at Dunn Cemetery, Canfield. Friends called after 1:30 pm, Sunday at the church.
