Dunn Sr. He is a graduate of Phillis Wheatley High School class of 1952 and attended St. Philip's College. George retired from civil service (Fort Sam Houston) as a Cartographic Technician. Never one to stay inactive, he had many part time jobs throughout his life such as a bartender at the Kangaroo Court in downtown San Antonio, a bus driver for the San Antonio Independent School District and finally a supervisor at the AT&T Center. Religion was very important to him, being a devout Christian who was heavily involved in various church ministries. George is survived by his loving wife Margaret Francis; children Mary Odukoya, Bridget Dunn-Mitchell (Larry Mitchell), Cheryl Horn and Keith Dunn; grandchildren Tolulola Odukoya, Olutomi Odukoya, Aaron Sanders Jr., Dustin K.

Dunn Sr., mother Cora Watson, brother Charles Dunn Sr., (Chick) and sister Martha Ann Bastiste. Special acknowledgement goes to all of the medical care he received in his final last months and to his neighbors, church members and friends who rallied around him by phone calls, food, and loving support. The family thanks you all. A special note from your children: Thank you Dad for everything you taught us and what really matters. You taught us to do what is right, even if it is difficult. You lived your life with integrity. You taught us to be selfless by always putting God first and then family. Day by day you taught us how to love by loving us with your whole heart. Thanks for the way you lived your life and teaching us the meaning of "Honor thy father and thy mother".

  4. Mr. George was my grandmother’s husband and one of the kindest men I’d ever met. He always took such great care of her and he will be missed.

  5. I worked with George Dunn in San Antonio, TX, fresh out of college, and hadn’t been exposed to many different foods other than what I grew up on. I told George I didn’t like Chinese food because of the smell. Well, George asked, “You like chicken?” I said, “Yes.” “Rice?” “Yes.” And he introduced me to lemon chicken! I then tried the beef and broccoli, and I was converted to a lover of Chinese food! This experience with George taught me to become open to trying something new. I could have missed out on something quite enjoyable! There are others, but this is my fondest memory of Mr. George Dunn! RIP!
