What can I say about Lee Dunn?
He was a kind, intelligent, humorous man. He also was a wonderful barber and teacher.
If not for his caring nature, I would not finished barber school.
I went through some tough times in that period of my life.
He encouraged me to finish.
I'm so glad that I did.
It has served me well for over 30 years
Here's a toast to you Lee.
You'll be missed and remembered by many.

I remember Lee when he came to Old Hickory to cut hair with Johnny White and others at the Village. Then I was a customer at the sculpture room and others through the years. Lee was always kind and treat us with dignity. Our sympathies to you and the family. This world is a better place because of Lee.
Luv to all
