Joseph O. "Sonny" Dunn went to be with the Lord on January 25, 2018, in Hot Springs, Arkansas. He was born April 27, 1940, in Colt, Arkansas to the late Joe and Helen Dunn.

He was a devout Christian and member of Gospel Light Baptist Church. Sonny was a loving husband, father, grandfather (Pepe) and great-grandfather. His family was his greatest joy.

Sonny worked the majority of his life in the milk industry in Forrest City, Fort Smith and Hot Springs. He was a hardworking family man who always enjoyed watching his children and grandchildren play sports.

Sonny's avid passion was duck hunting in the L'Anguille River bottoms in Eastern Arkansas. He enjoyed guiding hunts, teaching young people the sport and the comradery among hunters in the woods.

Left to cherish his memory are his beloved wife, Sandra, his two sons, Stan (Nancy) and Kevin (Jonda), his daughter, Tracey (Paul) Worley, ten grandchildren, Hunter, Hayden and John Harrison Dunn, Aaron and Addison Dunn, Jason and Zach Bennett, Andrew, Abigail and Lydia Worley, seven great-grandchildren, a brother, Bobby (Becky) Dunn, three sisters, Cathryn Brockwell, Linda Dunn and Brenda Carmon and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family members.
