Yet another farewell to a special friend,

After a long battle with cancer, it is with great sorrow we inform you that the beloved son, father and friend Chad Dunn has passed away. Chad was a very kind, humorous and inspirational friend to all who had the pleasure of knowing him. His gift with animals benefited many productions and the lives of the animals he touched.

Chad’s passion was the chimps and orangs he grew up and worked with. For this reason and in memory of Chad, IAWA members and visitors are asked to make a donation to :

Chad’s Fund ~ c/o  Center For Great Apes P.O.Box 488   Wauchula, FL 33873

Chad, the son of IAWA boardmember/advisor Bob Dunn, was born into the animal industry and embraced it with the same stress free, fun and jovial values that his father is so noted for. Together with animal trainer Denise Sanders, Chad is survived by a beautiful son, Jordan Dunn.

An alternative or additional means of remembering and supporting Chad’s memory would be to make a donation to Chad’s 5 year old son, Jordan. This can be done by sending a very appreciated donation to:

Jordan Dunn ~ c/o Denise Sanders P.O. Box 32621 The Old Road  Castaic, CA  33873

Our hearts go out to Bob and Linda Dunn, as well as Denise Sanders & Jordan Dunn for their loss is a loss for all, especially members of the animal community and the animals themselves,. The world was a better place with Chad here and we will always miss his smile and laughter.

Chad wanted his memory to a celebration of his life rather than his passing. With that in mind, we hope all will do just that and raise a glass occasionally in memory of Chad with the same smile and laughter that Chad would no doubt be sporting if he were with us (as many of us will always truly believe ~ he actually is...)
