No one like Pappy: Dunn set Calhoun County’s standard for politeness, generosity
Dunn, Satcher said in 1986, possessed “a rare kind of dedication and devotion to young people.”
That dedication and devotion to young people made Calhoun County a better place — for the children he taught, for the racial harmony he sought during the 1960s, and for the adults he later represented as a fixture on the Calhoun County Commission.
Dunn’s passing Tuesday filled the county with sadness, and rightly so. He is irreplaceable. Alabama has lost a great man of immeasurable influence, a leader of men and a counselor to generations.
If only there were more people like Pappy.
