OBITUARY

Michael Sean DUNN

May 3, 1968November 10, 2020

Michael Dunn, age 52, beloved husband and father extraordinaire, died November 10, 2020, in Dallas, TX, after a year and a half battle with liver cancer. On May 3, 1968, Mike was born in Milwaukee, WI, to his loving parents Robert Dean Dunn and Margaret Ann Lee. Mike began as a telecommunications engineer and transitioned into real estate with RE/MAX. He co-founded TeamDunn realty group with his brother Kevin. The brothers then moved to eXp Realty, where Mike sold properties and frequently mentored upcoming agents.

Mike got his first guitar at the age of 12 and played in many bands, including The Project, Boardwalk, One Trick Pony, Tall Cotton, and Definitely Maybe. He touched so many lives through his curiosity and often became life long friends with someone after a ten-minute conversation.

Mike lent his time and energy to many organizations as a long time resident of Coppell. He volunteered with the Girl Scouts of America, but he didn't stop there. He became one of the first "Camp Certified Dads," advocating for more access for the dads to get involved with Girl Scouts.

Mike worked tirelessly as a Chairman for The Relay for Life, performing with his band at Earth Day, and participating in multiple parades. He created the Coppell page on Facebook to foster open communication within the community. Mike initiated a raw milk co-op to make fresh dairy more locally available and loved teaching people how to make raw milk kefir.

Michael leaves his mother and caring wife Sally and their two daughters Melissa and Alison, who were the light of his life; his brother Kevin Dunn and his sister Lori Dunn. His family will plan a "Celebration of Life" for Mike sometime in the Spring/Summer of 2021.

Marge, so sorry to hear about Michael. He was always so much fun playing guitar and singing in church. He was so vibrant and enthusiastic about everything he did. He brought a lot of joy and love to those near to him and all who had a chance to know him. Peace to you and the rest of your family. Karen

I only knew Mike professionally and can tell you he was awesome! I echo what some else said “Coppell will miss him”, he was never too busy to do a showing or answer a question. He always went above and beyond, offering to meet an inspector or line up a contractor to do some work. I think we did 5 deals together but after the first one you felt like old friends. He always talked about his family and you could just tell that was important to him. Sending positive thoughts their way.

"It only takes one act of kindness, one caring heart, to make a difference." These are the words that come to my mind when I reflect on our first encounter.

I was part of CHS Golf Booster Club in 2017, and we were having a 5K fundraising event at Andy Brown East to provide for the players, just as other booster clubs do. It was a short-planned event, and we reached out to you in sort of a last-minute call for help to promote the event.

You had graciously agreed to help and DJ for the event without any hesitation. You brought out your gears and made the event vibrant during the cold, rainy Valentine's weekend with your gift in music. Needless to say, the event was a success with your generous help.

This was my first encounter with you and your act of kindness, your caring heart, left an everlasting image that has taken a place in my heart since that time. I regret that I never got a chance to thank you beyond that day, but your act of kindness certainly played a part in shaping the way I approach those I come across seeking/needing assistance.

It goes without saying that I’m sure Sally, Melissa and Ally have plenty more similar stories they can reflect on and share about your acts of kindness. And I’m also sure that your caring heart has helped to shape Sally, Melissa and Ally to be who they are today, being able to find and see the love and kindness you had spread among them.

My sincerest condolences and prayers for Sally, Melissa and Ally, and I send my deepest gratitude to all of you for allowing everyone to experience Mike’s act of kindness. I know all of you also played a part in shaping Mike to be who he is-A caring, loving, husband, father, friend and mentor.

Rest In Peace my friend….Rest in Peace…

I was saddened to learn the news of Mike's passing. I got to know Mike during my days at RE/MAX and always enjoyed talking to him. He had a great sense of humor and always had a positive outlook and would brighten anyone's day that he came in contact with. I caught his band Definitely Maybe a few times back in the day, and I always admired his dedication to and love for music. He made this world a brighter place. He will truly be missed.

As our kids were growing up, they got to be good friends with Mike and Kevin, and still are today. You could always see Mike and my son walking down the street holding hands and looking like innocent little angles, but all the neighbors knew different. They were always up to some kind of mischief. But thankfully they grew out of that stage. Our condolences go out to Sally, Melissa and Alison, Marge, Kevin and Lori. You are all in our prayers.

I have great memories working with Mike at NEC he was always entertaining. He also was a good friend and realtor who helped my daughter and her husband buy their first home. You are missed my friend.

I'll always remember Mike from our friendship at the CORE where we bumped into each other at the pool back in 2015. He was comitted to getting fit and losing weight and he dropped maybe 40 pounds and kept it until his accident. He patiently worked through rehab and that's when he joined Zumba. He was the only guy there, but knowing him, I'm sure the women didn't mind at all. He was such a pleasant person, and always had time, in passing, to talk. I'm gonna miss him.
