Doc Dunn was the absolute best! I doubt I could have survived the Academy without such an incredible, understanding and encouraging instructor and so much more. I had to be one of Doc's biggest challenges. I am so thankful he invested so dearly in me.

Doc was just as interested in me as a person (and referred to me without hesitation as Gramps) as he was in patiently teaching me. You never forget or stop thinking of and thanking special people like Doc Dunn. Or forget special times like being treated to dinner by Doc and his wife at Fisherman's Wharf just months after graduating and reporting to the Sherman in Alameda CA. What a surprise and wonderful evening. Just like Doc.

I remember when Dr. Dunn first arrived at CGA to be one of our civil engineering professors. I liked him right away. He was funny and personable but also a brilliant professor and leader. He instilled in me a commitment to excellence in civil engineering. He made us aware of engineering failures and guided us to guard against them. Then he taught us the principles of design in a way that we could understand and do. His teachings have served me well in my professional life and continue to do so. I also appreciate how he warmly invited us into his home on the weekends. I have often thought fondly of Doc Dunn and I will miss him.

Doc Dunn was my favorite instructor at the Coast Guard Academy. He was funny and had a real knack for engaging with his students. His love of his work and his students was evident.

For me, one of the first and few women in Mac Hall, his class was a wonderful respite from life at CGA. He was warm and encouraging everyday! His big smile, Norfolk drawl, and passion for all things Civil Engineering were infectious!

The world is a sadder place without Doc Dunn.
