Dr. Walter DUNN

Dr. R. Walter Dunn 1915 – 2012. It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our Dad, grandpa and great-grandpa, Rudolph Walter Dunn. Walter died peacefully at the age of 97. He was born in Germany and educated in Great Britain (Cambridge and London) acquiring his Specialist qualifications in Obstetrics and Gynecology. After a short period of military service, he emigrated to Canada in 1948 and soon established a Specialist practice in New Westminster, which he continued until 1979 (30 years), when he retired to White Rock. Walter married Joyce Williams soon after his arrival to Canada. She predeceased him in 1993, and his sorrow continued until the end of his life. He was also predeceased by his eldest son Robert (2002), and by his brother Henry (2008). He is survived and mourned by his three remaining children, Terry (Rita), Jane Richardson (Terry) and Susan Cressey (Scott); eleven grandchildren: Shaun (Tegan), Amy (Garth), Kevin (Dayna), Caitlin (Marcus), Jennifer, Katie, Mikhail, Samantha, Jackson, Hayley and Natalie. He is also missed by his three great-granddaughters: Meara, Kyla and Shayna. A memorial gathering will be held on Thursday, Dec. 6, 2012 at 2:00 pm at Fraser Heights Chapel 14835 Fraser Highway, Surrey, BC for relatives and friends. In lieu of flowers, a contribution to Doctors Without Borders, would be appreciated, an organization which Walter worked after his retirement.
