Jack Gardner Dunn was born February 7, 1921 in Bryan Texas. He was raised in Bellville and graduated with the class of 1939. He graduated from Texas A&M University in 1943, and served with the "Greatest Generation" in World War II as an officer with the 730th Engineers Depot Company, in Papua New Guinea and the Philippines. During this time he was a participant in the Corregidor Muster, and was charged with gathering all Aggies on ships and land to attend this very important roll call. Upon returning from abroad, he was employed by Humble Oil as a production accountant. He later became director of Charpiot and Dunn, working in the Oilfield and Engineering Contracting business. He also served as Austin County State Bank Director, Vice Chairman, and Chairman of the Board, as President of the BISD School Board, on the Bellville General Hospital Board, and the St. Mary's Episcopal Church Vestry as Junior and Senior Warden. Some of his passions in life were gardening, cattle ranching, and quail hunting. Papa Jack was a gentleman in every sense of the word and he is at peace now, working dogs on a big covey, the sun at his back, and the evening breeze blowing gently in his face. Jack G.
