Roddy Lee Dunn

March 15, 1935 - May 27, 2005

Mr. Roddy Lee Dunn, age 70, of McKinney, Texas, passed away May 27, 2005, in Dallas, Texas. He was born March 15, 1935, to Alfred and Alma (Beal) Dunn. Roddy’s most distinguished contribution was being a loving dad, granddad and loyal friend. His faithfulness to the Lord gave him the wisdom and devotion to be a wonderful dad and friend. He prayed for his children continuously. He stayed involved with his children and grandchildren and was an important part of their lives. He expressed love and concern for his children even during his last hours which were spent battling an aggressive form of leukemia. He emphasized to his children the importance of a strong family bond by being an example. Our time together was too brief but we will look forward to enjoying eternity. He served in the U.S. Army. Roddy worked as a program manager for Raytheon and was a member of the First Baptist Church in McKinney. Left to cherish his memories are his daughter, Sylvia Hallerman and husband, Clint of Prosper, Texas; sons, Barry Dunn and wife, Margie of Boyd, Texas, and Dale Gilliam and wife, Diane of Decatur, Texas; brother, Bill Dunn of Tyler, Texas; grandchildren, Hannah, Samuel, and Chad Hallerman, Kara and Kyle Dunn, and Dale III, Dawn, and Denton Gilliam. His parents preceded him in death. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 P.M., Saturday, June 4, 2005, at the First Baptist Church in McKinney.
