James "Jim" Otis Dunn Jr.

2 marzo , 196020 enero , 2020

James "Jim” Dunn of Dallas, Georgia passed away unexpectedly on January 20th 2020. He was a father, grandfather, husband, brother and friend; highly revered for his willingness to help others, his stoicism and humility. If a person called for help, he was the first one to answer; and the last to let others know that he had. No matter the problems he faced, he was stalwart in facing them. Despite these admirable traits, he'd never raise his voice to bring attention to them.

Jim respected the world that the Lord has given us in its rawest form, and sought to see as much of it as he could. He viewed the world from as high as the peaks of the Appalachians, and as distant as Australia. Both the California and Golden Coasts were well worn by him, and the shores of Ireland were no strangers to his presence.

If man is made in God's image, Jim illustrated God's role as creator. Clothing, landscapes, old furniture, playgrounds, paper; there was no canvas he couldn't make art upon. He understood the intricate nature of an artists hand, and spent much time in awe of the works of man. From the intricacies of the Pieta to the swooping arches of Saint Peter's Basilica, he sought beauty in the works of others.

For these traits, and many others too numerous to list, we will miss him dearly.

Jim will forever be remembered by his wife Valarie, his loving daughter Carly, step daughters Sarah Meadows, Stephanie (Rich) Rapka and grandson Ethan whom he lovingly called ‘PopPop’, brothers- Jeff (Julie) Dunn, Johnson Dunn, uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews and friends. Jim is preceded in death by his parents James Otis Dunn Sr and Judy Chance. In laws Franklin Lynell Conner Sr and Dorothy Ann Conner.

The arrangements for Mr. James ‘Jim’ Dunn have been entrusted to the care of Winkenhofer Pine Ridge Funeral Home, 2950 N. Cobb Pkwy Kennesaw, GA 30152. 770-422-7299. A private celebration of life will be held for family and close friends.

I was saddened when Paula called me with the news of Jim's death. Jim and I are related somewhere along the line, maybe our grandfathers were brothers(if I remember correctly). We were the same age and in school together with the same name, which was very confusing. Our teachers called him "Jimmy", at the time, and called me "Jim". I remember such fun times during our formative years. I have a picture of the two of us at a "Sally Woody dance" from about 6th or 7th grade which I need to find. I will always remember him with fond memories. I loved his mother, Judy, who taught me and sang in our wedding. I also remember visiting his grandparents, Otis and Tiny on numerous occasions with my dad, Myron.
I'm so sorry for your loss. I've had you in my thoughts and prayers.

I met Jim 45 years or so ago. We got off to a rocky start, but once I got past the Joe Namath looks, I realized how special he was. He's been one of my dearest friends ever since, and I am deeply sorry he has passed away. We had so many good times together thanks to how much fun he was. He was fearless, fun-loving, considerate, creative, talented and incredibly smart. He taught me to sail, surf, ride a motorcycle, avoid serious injury on a three-wheeled ATV, crop tobacco, and the list goes on. He defined my high school years, and I'm so fortunate he did. Loved him like a brother, because that's exactly what he was to me.

Jeff, Johnson, Valerie, and family, so sad to hear the news. Lots of good memories of Jimmy and the family - our years together at Trinity and being classmates. I pray God gives you all comfort and surround you with His love.

I'm extremely saddened to learn of Jim's passing. He and I were friends for nearly 50 years and I will always treasure his friendship and all the great memories of him, and dearly miss him. My deepest condolences to Valarie and the entire family. We were all blessed to have been part of his life.

I am so sorry to hear of Jim's death. I was born and raised in Conway, SC where Jim's dad and uncles were cousins of mine. We spent many happy days visiting with family while growing up. Jim and Valarie attended my husband's services when he passed away in 2015 & it was delightful to catch up then. He will be sorely missed by friends and family.
