We were sorry to learn of the passing of Mr. Dunn. He was always a friend to the Henley Family in Baker. We always enjoyed the tales he related to us about his childhood. He was Royce’s 5th and 6th grade teacher at Baker School. He was a good man and had a good family. We appreciate those years of his friendship, Royce and Mary Ann Henley
