He joined the BC Ministry of Highways in 1956 and became a District Manager at the age of 29 in 1962.

My husband Pat and I moved to Chilliwack in December, 1990. Our next door neighbour was none other than Pat Dunn and as it turned out he and my husband knew each other. He was a great neighbour and friend. We were saddened to hear of his passing but remembered all the great times we had. Our condolences go out to his children, grandchildren and the rest of the family.

One of my fondest memories of Uncle Pat was having the honour of being a flower girl at his wedding. He made me feel so special, despite having only just met him! To this day, I do not eat peanut butter because he always told me, "It puts hair on your chest." In hindsight, I think that might have been on purpose so he wouldn't have to share. My sincere condolences to all of Pat's family and friends. My heartfelt thoughts are with you.

To Brian, Shaun and Rory;
Of the times I met your dad, the thing I remember most about him is his smile. It always seemed to be there, as if waiting for some hilarious secret practical joke to come to fruition. It's something he passed on to the three of you, and when those who knew your father well see it, they will see him.
My condolences on your loss.
Alan Arnold,

We are deeply saddened to read of Pat’s passing!! Pat was such a warm, caring and wonderful man! While he was living at the Auburn, he was so kind and helpful to my mom, Jocelyn Allen. We loved his stories of the past. He was an extremely interesting gentleman. Our hearts go out to his family!!
