We'll miss Vernon's fix-everything ability, always helping out when needed and his great attitude about life! He always had a smile on his face and his arms open for a hug. He and Joan spent many Sundays with the folks, playing cards and sharing meals. We spent the summer of 2020 in Crawford and Vernon & Joan stepped up when we needed help or loaner furniture. Vernon was a very special member of the family and we'll miss him dearly.

I can't even believe I'm writing this. My parents Dave and Mary would have been so heartbroken over this news. They have both passed on or I know they would have been there for the funeral. I still have all my fond memories as a preteen and a teenager of all the Dunham's. Especially Mr. Dunham as he was like an Uncle to me and my brother and sister for the 3 years we lived across the street from them. We always went camping with the Dunham's and the 2 or 3 other families our family was close too. I remember New Years Eve, all of us walking from house to house in the snow to have a separate meal course and we finished at the Dunham's for Breakfast. I only saw Mr. Dunham I think 2 times after my dad retired but I kept in contact with the family and I feel like I have lost a distant uncle or something. My sincerest condolences and sympathy to Paula, Wesley, LeEllen, Matthew, Judson and Mrs. Dunham for the loss of a really great man. Teresa Varela <3

Vernon was a friend for many years and served with me as a Lions district council member. Comfort prayers to Joan and family. He will be missed.
