Dr. Robert Dunlop
Bob died, Thursday August 20, 2015 at his home in the arms of his wife, Jeanette and his youngest son Patrick.
His long, enduring battle with cancer ended his life at the age of 66 years. There was never a doubt in his mind where his final resting place would be. He now rests in the loving arms of his Savior Jesus Christ, who will present him to his Father in Heaven.
Bob was a man of integrity, a quiet man but when he spoke others listened, had a very dry sense of humor, was a leader expecting the best from others and expecting the best of himself, a lover of golf, anytime anywhere (good shot Bob), and he cared for others but never complaining throughout his almost seven years of cancer treatments. He loved the nurses and staff of the Baylor Scott and White Oncology floor, who treated him with kindness and respect. His oncologist was Dr. Kathleen Halka, who worked hard to keep him with us as long as possible but forthright with him so he knew what was going on. He took scripture seriously treating others as he would want to be treated, as servant to many and looking after those under his care, his family, co-workers, and friends.
He leaves behind his wife Jeanette, partner, friend and lover of 45 years. His oldest son Joseph, wife Mary Kathryn and treasured granddaughter Elizabeth of Apex, North Carolina. His youngest and beloved son Patrick of Austin TX. His close knit family from Austin MN include: sister Barbara Felton, husband John of Rose Creek, MN: sister Marjorie Peterson; brother Jack Dunlop and wife Marlys; sister Nancy Reed and husband Cliff; brother James Dunlop; brother Thomas Dunlop and wife Lisa; and sister Deborah Horejsi and husband Clarence of Owatona, MN. Born and raised in Austin MN he expanded his horizons by attending colleges in MN., served in the Army, culminating at the University of Tennessee with a PHD in Audiology. He started and ended his career at the VA Hospital in Temple Texas with a short stint in private practice, always looking after those he cared for. He served his church in many capacities, sharing his gift of administration.
