PORTSMOUTH — Robert Everett Dunn, 65, died Sunday, Aug. 31, 2008, at Edgewood Centre in Portsmouth after a three-year battle with lung disease.
He was born Oct. 23, 1942, in Manchester to Alma R. and Delmar S. Dunn. He moved to Meredith and graduated from Inter-Lakes High School in 1960 and the University of New Hampshire in 1964 as an English major. Robert was selected during his high school years to attend special summer class at St. Paul's School in Concord, where he studied botany.
A man of eclectic interests, Robert harvested apples, taught at a private school and protested anything he thought ought rightly be protested.
Mr. Dunn worked for many years at the Portsmouth Athenaeum as "consulting metaphysician."
Robert is survived by his sister, Dorothy D.S. Brown, and brother, Russell A. Dunn, both of Meredith, and several cousins and loving friends.
WE REMEMBER: For about 30 years, Robert had resided in Portsmouth, a city he loved. He was a self-described "penny poet," Portsmouth's second poet laureate.
SERVICES: Services for Robert will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday at Center Harbor Christian Church, 80 Bean Road, Center Harbor.
