Wilton Thomas Dunn Jr., 76, of West Point, Va., passed away Saturday, Dec. 24, 2016, at his home surrounded by his family after a long, courageous battle with cancer.
Wilton was born Feb. 21, 1940, in Newport News to the late Wilton and Thelma Marshall Dunn. He was a graduate of West Point High School.
He is survived by his wife, Mary Brooks Dunn; daughters, Karen Dunn, and her wife, Donna, of Elgin, Ill., and Terry Modr, and her husband, Keith, of West Point, Va.; stepson, Wade Cutrell of King and Queen, Va.; sister, Anna Dixon of West Point, Va.; and a number of other loving relatives and close friends.
More than anything, Wilton enjoyed spending time with family and friends. Fishing, hunting and being outdoors were among his hobbies. He also enjoyed gadgets and building or doing things with the plans only in his head. While at home, he could be found watching the western channel, playing games or singing with his wife. He was employed by Chesapeake Corporation for many years before leaving to be involved with several general contracting companies. He also managed Tacoma Hunting and Fishing Club during his working career and through retirement.
The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 30, at Vincent Funeral Home, 417 11th St., West Point. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 31, at Brett Reed Presbyterian Church, 29680 King William Road, West Point, VA 23181.
