Recent Obituary: John B. ‘Jack’ Dunn

John B. “Jack” Dunn of Chelsea, age 88, passed away on May 22, 2023 at his home at Cavanaugh Lake.

Jack was born on Oct. 22, 1934 in Ann Arbor to John F. and Eva H. (West) Dunn. Jack was a long-time resident and business owner in Chelsea.

He married the love of his life and best friend, Nancy (Luhrs), on July 21, 1956, and they enjoyed 65 years of marriage until she passed away in 2021. They met as children at Higgins Lake where their families summered starting when Jack was 9 and Nancy was 12. They grew up as best friends, married, and together they built a family, built a business, and raised three children in Chelsea:  Kathy Dunn Finger, Kimberly S. Tapping, and John F. Dunn.

Jack and Nancy were season ticket holders to Michigan football games and enjoyed many years of tailgate parties, UM Football, and Chelsea football. He also loved growing up and later living on a lake, boating, and playing golf.

He operated Central Fiber in Chelsea and then served as President and Owner of Chelsea Industries, as well as owner of Dunn & Associates. Family and faith were central throughout his life, and he was a long-time member of St. Mary Catholic Church in Chelsea.
