River William Dunn


Our sweet little boy, River William Dunn, returned to his Heavenly Father on Monday, February 29, 2016. River was born March 25, 2013 in Payson, Utah to David Matthew and Julie Anderson Dunn.  He loved his family dearly and had a special relationship with each one of them.  He loved kisses and snuggles from Mom, helping Dad work, and playing with his sisters.

River enjoyed skateboarding, playing in the mud, and going for rides in the VW Bus. He loved swords, ninjas, and Baymax.  He loved to dip his french fries in ranch dip and drink chocolate milk. River was delightfully silly, especially if he got a reaction from it.  He loved his boots and riding on the lawnmower.  His favorite comforter was his “Baba”.

He was a very obedient and thoughtful boy who always listened the first time. He brought sunshine wherever he went, and his family will miss him dearly. They look forward to the day when they will be together once more.

River is survived by his loving parents, David and Julie; sisters, Aliah and Samantha; and grandparents, Ron and Patty Dunn, Jim and Marie Anderson.

Graveside services will be held Friday, March 4, 2016 at the Mapleton Cemetery, 620 West Maple Street at 11:00 a.m.
