Robert was the devoted husband of Joan Dorfman; loving father of Jeffrey, Michelle, and Michael Dunn; cherished brother of Cathy Dunn; nephew of Shirley and Donald Reisman. He was preceded in death by his father, David “Buddy” Dunn and his mother, Joan B. Dunn. Born in Dublin Georgia, Robert attended Dublin H.S. and graduated from Darlington School. He received his bachelor’s degree from University of Virginia, his law degree from Cumberland School of Law, and his master’s degree in taxation from the NYU School of Law School.

Robert was passionate about the game of golf. He was championship golfer in high school and played on the varsity team at UVA. Robert loved listening to and playing trumpet music; and in his later years he was an avid reader. He had the gift of making perfect strangers his friends from the moment they first met.
