Robert Michael Dunn, 82, resident of Brick Township, NJ, passed away Wednesday, January 13, 2021 at his home. Robert, Bob to his friends, was born on August 6, 1938 in New York City. He grew up in Inwood, NY. Robert and his wife, Anne, moved to Hillsdale, NJ to raise a family in 1968. Prior to meeting Anne, Robert proudly served in the Marine Corps. He was a member of the Local 3 Electrical Union, working as an electrical contractor for many years. Although he moved away from the city, he was always proud of his New York roots, and loved working in, and visiting the “Big Apple” throughout the years.
While raising his three daughters, Bob enjoyed spending summers at his home in Ortley Beach. Robert and his family were so happy spending their summers down the shore; that upon retiring, Bob and Anne relocated to Brick Township. They enjoyed spending time on the beach, and taking their friends and family out on their boat. Robert and Anne also enjoyed spending their winters for several years with their friends in Boynton Beach, Florida.
One of his greatest joys was his grandson, Griffin, who affectionately called him Poppy.
