Robert C. Dunn, 77, of New Ringgold, died Wednesday in the Hospice Unit of the Lehigh Valley Hospital, Salisbury Township.

He was the husband of Andrea Rhubright Dunn. They were married 57 years on Jan. 21.

He was a lifelong farmer and businessman, with a work ethic like no other. One of the happiest days of his life was May 10, 1954. At the age of 12, he and his family moved to the family farm. He was a second-generation farmer and to this day, the third and fourth generation continue to farm. He owned and operated the Village Center Mall, Andreas, and since 1982, the Hometown Farmers Market.

Born in Lewistown Valley, he was a son of the late Robert G. and Helen M. Leiby Dunn. Robert was a member of Zion Church, Lewistown Valley. He was a life member of the New Ringgold Fire Company, a member of Gideons International, the Independent Order of Odd Fellows Lodge 802, a board member for the Salvation Army and a former deacon and elder at Christ Church, McKeansburg. His priority was his family. He was also known for the love and generosity he showed toward others. He was an avid hunter and loved working at home, driving his tractors and equipment, going to sales and buying, collecting and showing his antiques. He and his wife traveled the entire country and parts of Canada on their motorcycle, making memories and friends along the way.

He was preceded in death by a son, Robert Jr., and a grandson, Robert P. "Bobby."

Surviving, in addition to his wife, are two sons, James D. and his wife Tammie, New Ringgold, and Steven C. and his wife Valarie, New Tripoli; a daughter, Susan, wife of Ned Biege, New Ringgold; three sisters, Ruth, wife of Charles Gerber, Lewistown Valley, Barbara, wife of Paul Breiner, Andreas, and Jean, wife of Bruce Bachert, New Ringgold; nine grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; nieces and nephews.
