Caroline would be delighted if you folks could relate tales of Charlie’s foibles whilst playing crib. But if not, any remembrance will do.

This obituary (or an edited version of it) will be published in the August 2014 Crib World

Not many of us will leave this world doing what we love. Charlie Dunn did. He collapsed shortly after winning what would be his final game of cribbage at the Independence Day Tournament in Reno, NV and subsequently passed away days later without recovering consciousness. Born in San Francisco in 1932, he often shared stories of his life while growing up and working for AT&T in the city by the bay. His cribbage accomplishments include Club Champion of Club 43 for the 2011-2012 GR Season and earning his Bronze Award in Grass Roots and Grand Master in ACC. He was a very competitive player both in club and on the tournament trail. Charlie always supported fair play as a result of his years of being a union leader. When not playing cribbage, he enjoyed family, reading, 49'er football, Giants baseball, gardening and fishing (always sharing his harvest or catch at club). He will be missed by many friends on the tournament trail, even more by the members of clubs 43 & 48, where he played weekly.
