Please Pray for the Repose of the Soul of Jeff Dunnam February 7, 2018

Jeff Dunnam was a coworker of mine for the past 2 years at Commscope.  The first 7-8 months I didn’t get to know him as he was on leave recovering from cancer.  Then he went out again for cancer treatment over the past 2 months or so.  But in between, I got to know Jeff quite well.  Jeff was not Catholic but was a believing Christian. He was in many respects a good guy.  We had many conversations when he drug me out to have a smoke in the afternoon heat.  He grew up in Collin County, like me, and we used to talk about the sounds and smells of summer – the Bois D’Arc trees and rotting horseapples, the smell of ragweed 10 feet tall, the katydids and locusts buzzing all day, the things we’d get up to as kids, before Collin County got built up and paved over.  I enjoyed the time I spent with him.

Even though he had been suffering from cancer, he died suddenly and unexpectedly this past Saturday Feb 3.  Amazingly, another coworker of mine ran into Jeff buying a handgun earlier that same day, and reported he looked agitated and distracted but physically well.

Obviously there is much cause for prayer.  The visitation/memorial is tonight, the funeral and burial tomorrow at 2pm.  Both are in Allen, near Jeff’s hometown of McKinney.  Location at the link.  Yes these are of course protestant services.

REQUIEM aeternam dona ei, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat ei. Requiescat in pace. Amen Fidelium animae, per misericordiam Dei, requiescant in pace. Amen.

Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord and let the perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen. Yes, he was protestant. Let us hope no mortal sin crossed his path and that Our Lord have abundant mercy on his soul seeing as he was a Texan and friend of yours:+) God bless~

Amen. Prayers for Jeff. I hope the firearm purchase was not to do harm to himself.

Sad to hear. Will keep the repose of his soul in my Mass intentions this week.
