YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, N.Y. – Charles F. Dunn of Yorktown Heights died Sunday, Oct. 14. He was 88.

Born April 2, 1924, in New York City, he was the son of Charles F. Dunn Sr. and Margaret Williams. On July 18, 1943, Dunn married his childhood sweetheart, Kathleen Nolan.

He served in the Army Air Forces during World War II and saw action in the Pacific Theater in the Marshall Islands. When the war ended, he returned home to Kathleen and settled in Peekskill. Dunn was employed by the Olivetti Corp. for 38 years. His passion in life was his family.
