Notice Condolences

CHUNN, RONALD WAYNE, 72, passed away on November 18, 2012 in Winter Springs, FL due to complications from frontotemporal dementia. He was born in Pearcy, AR on July 13, 1940 to the late
Clifton and Virgie Chunn. He graduated from Arkadelphia High School in 1958 and the University of Arkansas with a BS in Electrical Engineering in 1963. His engineering career spanned nearly 30 years, mostly with Westinghouse as ASQC-Certified Quality Engineer in Baltimore, MD. He also spent the late 1960's working for Boeing as a systems reliability engineer for the Saturn V program in Huntsville, AL. In the early 1990's he switched careers and pursued his passion for traveling. He trained as a travel agent, joined and led many Baltimore-area travel clubs, and traveled the world before eventually owning his own travel agency. He loved music and dancing and was often the life of the party. Ron is survived by his only child Brenda Shepherd of Maitland, FL, and her husband Jim; grandsons Kyle and Jake Shepherd; older brother Charles Chunn of Hot Springs, AR; younger brother Doug Chunn of Jacksonville, FL. A meaningful donation to support frontotemporal dementia research may be made to "UCSF Foundation" (in memo line "FTD Fund B1566 honoring Ronald Chunn"), mailed to UCSF Foundation Box 45339, San Francisco, CA 94145-0339. Graveside services will take place at Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Hot Springs, AR on Nov. 27 at 9 AM. Arrangements entrusted to DeGusipe
