Yorktown, IN

Brian Wayne Dunn, a beloved father, pops, son, brother, uncle, and friend passed away on January 29, 2024, at the age of 58 in his hometown of Yorktown, Indiana. Brian is survived by his son Caleb Dunn (Lauren), and Corinne Dunn (Colin Brown); grandchildren Hailey and Reece Dunn; mother Beverly Scott Dunn; siblings Greg Dunn (Rhonda), and Sandy Franklin (Chris); and several nieces and nephews. Brian is also survived by his former wife Cindy Nunemaker Dunn and family Beth Alexander, Jon Nunemaker (Chris), and Sarah Campbell (Randy). Brian was preceded in death by his grandparents, father James Dunn, and family Connie and Larry Nunemaker, and Kathryn Doughty. Brian was born on August 6, 1965, to Beverly Scott Dunn and the late James Dunn. Brian was a devoted son who cherished his parents. From a young age, Brian learned the value of hard work and determination from his parents, who instilled in him a strong work ethic. Brian took the responsibility of big brother seriously as he grew up. He understood his role as a guide for his younger siblings, and he always tried to be there for them when they needed him. Brian's early years were filled with exciting adventures alongside his lifelong friends Eric Clapper, Randy Jackson, and the late Ryan Pegg. The four of them spent countless hours exploring their neighborhood, discovering new places, and creating memories that would last a lifetime. As they grew older, their friendship remained strong, and they continued to make the most of every moment spent together. Brian was devoted to raising his children. He often worked jobs with odd hours to ensure his children had every opportunity to be involved in sports, band, school trips, and so much more. His most memorable jobs were in service to others as a MITS bus driver and sanitation driver for the City of Muncie. His greatest pride was to see his children as successful, dedicated registered nurses, following in their parents’ path of serving the community. Brian had the distinct honor of being a grandfather, or as he was affectionately known, "Pops" to his two grandchildren, Hailey and Reece, who brought him immeasurable joy. Brian cherished the time he spent with his grandkids, taking every opportunity to create special memories with them. Brian always made sure that his grandkids knew how much he loved them. Hailey and Reece, in turn, adored their Pops. Brian was known as the fun uncle to his many nieces and nephews. He was always there to lend a helping hand, offer wise counsel, and give a needed correction. He stretched his own beliefs to love and support all the children in his life. Brian's faithful companion was his mini Goldendoodle. The two were inseparable since the day Brian adopted her. More than just a pet, Gypsy Rose was always by Brian's side as a loyal friend and confidant. Even as he faced his own health issues, his primary concern remained his Gypsy Rose. Brian will be remembered for his infectious sense of humor that could light up any room. A gifted guitar player, Brian's music touched the hearts of many and brought joy to those around him. His love for music and art were a testament to his creative spirit. Brian’s kind and compassionate nature endeared him to all who knew him. Despite the challenges he faced along the way, it was clear to anyone who knew him that family was the most important thing in his life. He will always be remembered with fondness and admiration by those who knew him. Family and friends will gather to celebrate Brian’s life with an open house on Saturday, February 10 from 1:00-4:00 p.m., at Yorktown Church of the Nazarene Fellowship Hall, 9001 W. Arch Street, Yorktown, IN 47396. The church will receive memorials and flowers from well-wishers beginning at 11 a.m. on Saturday. Brian fought illness for many years. He left this world far too soon and will be deeply missed by everyone. Those who loved him take comfort in knowing he is at peace and his memory will live on through his children and grandchildren.
