William Floyd Dunn, 74, of Pinebluff, passed away Monday, June 10, 2019, at FirstHealth Hospice House in Pinehurst.
He was born Sept. 21, 1944, in Florence, S.C., to the late Edgar and Virginia Dunn. Floyd served in the U.S. Army as a helicopter pilot during the Vietnam War. He worked with the Department of Public Safety as a correctional training instructor II. Floyd loved teaching and his work, but finally went into retirement when his health made him unable to work anymore.
Floyd was an outdoorsman who loved animals. For more than 50 years, he had many “pasture pets” and enjoyed feeding all the animals near his home, including deer, turkeys, squirrels or any animal that made its way to him. The animals enjoyed it so much they would come in groups when he was out feeding. He also enjoyed camping and canoeing, but above everything he loved time with his family. It wasn’t uncommon to see a whole group of the Dunn family out and about spending quality time together.
He is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Linda Black Dunn; two children, Christie Zwiebel (Dave) and Cory Dunn (Heather); one brother, Mike Dunn (Jomara); three grandchildren, Ashley Dunn, Dave Zwiebel Jr. and Christopher Zwiebel; two nephews and other family and friends.
A visitation will be held Saturday, June 15, from 1 to 2 p.m. at Beulah Hill Baptist Church, 7400 Beulah Hill Church Road, West End, with services following at 2 p.m. Burial will be in Bethesda Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Floyd’s name can be made to FirstHealth Hospice Foundation or Fisherhouse.org.
