February 28, 1930 ~ April 8, 2019

Born in: Newton, Kansas
Resided in: Littleton, Colorado

On Monday, April 8, 2019, Jack Ray Dunn, loving husband and father of six children, passed away at age 89.

Jack was born on February 28, 1930, in Newton, KS to Earl and Wilda (Giggy) Dunn. He joined the Army in 1951 and was trained as a paratrooper and fought as a Ranger in the Korean War. He was awarded the Purple Heart and left the military as Sargent First Class. He attended Wichita State University studying Mechanical Engineering and honed his building skills over many years in his construction company. He married Luba Krawtzova, and they raised six children in Colorado.

Jack had a passion for vitality. His physical prowess was demonstrated as a youngster, and he excelled as a student athlete. This love of sports and nature continued throughout his life, and he was an avid sportsman, hunter, angler, skier, and golfer. He loved to joke with any and all and choose to see life as one of gratitude and abundance. He was an understated man who adored his family and was known for his quick wit, his twinkly blue eyes, and his kind and compassionate spirit.

Luba preceded Jack in death in 1976. He never remarried and raised his six children alone. He is survived by his brother, Bill Dunn, his six children and his thirteen grandchildren: JP Dunn, Erica Houston, Hunter Melnick, Marko Melnick, Alex Karnes, Ashley Young, Jaime Payne, Hannah D’EgidioAlena Payne, Arielle Angelovich Aziz, Aidan Angelovich, Gavin Dunn and Kyla Dunn. He was delighted by his four great-grandchildren: Sophia Payne, Kameron Karnes, Celine D’Egidio, Caroline Payne and Grace Payne.

  1. So sorry to hear about Jack’s passing. I remember the various opportunities I had to interact with Jack while hanging out with Ray in middle school. He was always so positive and kept you on your toes in conversation. He definitely had a zest for life and quick witted was an understatement. Thoughts and prayers are with the extended Dunn family.

  2. My deepest condolences to the friends and family of Jack. May your treasured memories bring you joy, and may ‘the God of all comfort’ give you strength, along with a measure of peace for your grieving hearts at this most difficult time.
