Patrick Jonathan Dunn
PONTOTOC – Patrick Jonathan “John” Dunn, age 43, of Pontotoc went to his forever home Friday June 3, 2022, at North Mississippi Medical Center in Pontotoc. He was born May 10, 1979, in Water Valley (the last baby born at Yalobusha Hospital) to Melvin and Mollie (Marlowe) Dunn.
Patrick had a huge heart and genuinely loved all whom he knew. He went to school in Water Valley and played football for the Blue Devils. In a chance meeting while visiting his aunt’s house in Houston, Miss. Patrick met, and later married, Rhonda, the love of his life.
Until he became disabled, John always displayed a tremendous work ethic. He was a vinyl specialist, and exemplified this work ethic as he started his own business. When he wasn’t working hard, Patrick loved fishing, trot-lining with his dad and cutting grass. But absolutely nothing meant more to him than his family, especially his boys.
Visitation was held Tuesday, June 7, in the Gardiner Room at Seven Oaks Funeral Home from noon until 2 p.m. Services followed at 2 p.m. in the Henry Chapel of Seven Oaks with Bro. Mickell Dunn officiating.
Patrick is survived by his wife of 26 years, Rhonda Dunn; his parents Melvin and Mollie Dunn of Water Valley; two sons, Tyler Dunn (Ginger) and Jonathan “J.T.” Dunn (Amber) all of Pontotoc; two grandchildren, Caroline “Lizzie” Dunn and Ava-Kate Taylor Dunn; and two sisters, Becky Deaton (Wayne) of Olive Branch and Jennifer Shempert (Chad) of Pontotoc.
