To the entire Dunson family I’m so very sorry for your loss. I always admired and looked up to “Tiny” he was like long distant uncle to me that when I saw him he always had a smile on his face and was always engaging in conversation about my life. I am so very fortunate to have had him as friend and family member. I know he is rejoicing with Danny up there.
My condolences and love to you all.
Kyle Felty and Felty family.

My parents moved into the neighborhood in 1971 and I had many enjoyable times at the Dunson's.
Mr. Dunson was a great man to us kids in the neighborhood! He gave up a lot of his own personal time for us kids. Many times he took me and Danny to baseball practices at Milam Elementary and games at Cottonwood Park when we played PeeWee and Little League together.
He always let us kids on the Clifton Ct. side gather in the backyard to play games against the kids from Camara and never complained whe we'd get rowdy. He was a good man!
I send my prayers and sincerest condolences to all!

Kathy, we were so saddened to hear about Tiny. He will certainly be missed. We always enjoyed visiting at the Pioneer, and think of both of you fondly.
With love, Marvin and Dee

Many good times just being a friend, I retired over 30 years ago but we always kept in touch with each other. He was someone that you loved and respected. You will never be forgotten.
