It is not intended to take anything away from our announcements of other members who pass away. But due to the character and service rendered by Past Master Robert C. Dunn, we will share a few more things about his life as a man and as a Master Mason. He was born Waurika, Oklahoma on December 29, 1925 and became known to most people, simply as Bob Dunn.
Brother Dunn was a veteran of World War II. He then became employed by Rock Island and Pacific Railroad Co. He served for several years as a Reserve Police Officer in Irving. He was an active member of the First Baptist Church in Irving. He was always active in service to the Irving Community.
Bob was Raised a Master Mason in Irving Lodge #1218 on April 30, 1962. He was a dedicated man and that extended into his service as a Mason. He spent hours in Masonic study to earn a certificate in the esoteric work. He became active in the work of Scottish Rite Masonry. He headed the Irving Lodge Committee on the “Gift of Life” blood drives. He was elected by his brethren to receive the Golden Trowel Award in 2005.
Brother Bob Dunn always said that he was ready to meet his Lord and Savior whenever he was called. That time came on January 1, 2011 as he went to rest in the arms of his Savior.
“But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Se’lah.”
We dedicate this bulletin to the memory of Robert C. “Bob” Dunn. Our prayers are with his family and loved ones. His memory will live forever in the hearts of those who knew him.
