Passing of 50 Year Employee Doc Dunn

14-Oct-2017

Everyone associated with Milton J Womack, Inc. was sad to hear of the passing of Doc Dunn.

Doc worked for MJW for over 50 years and touched so many people at the company.

Steve Carville was asked by Doc's wife to speak at the funeral.  

His Eulogy is below:

Good morning, my name is Steve Carville, and I consider this a great honor to be standing before you today.  My thoughts and prayers are with you Betty and all the many Dunn’s mourning the loss of a beloved husband, father, brother, grandfather, and great grandfather. 

I met “Doc” for the first time when I had just started working in the construction business.  When I reflect back on my life, besides my father, three things have guided me over all the years.  Mr. Milton, Mr. LaCaze, and the Dunn’s.

Our story begins around 1963 when Doc talked to Mr. LaCaze about getting a job. Mr LaCaze wasn’t hiring, but Doc said “I’ll work free for a day and then you can decide.”  Not two hours after he started, Mr. LaCaze hired him on the spot and asked if he knew anybody else like him.  A day or so later, both Willie & Leon started their long journey with Milton J. Womack and are still going strong to this day. 

Success in life comes from those people dedicated to taking care of family, making work a joy and not a chore, and being loyal to those around you.  Doc was such a success.

I talked about the Dunn’s being loyal.  One defines LOYALTY as having a strong feeling of support to something or someone.  Doc, early on, set an example for those around him by not only talking “hard work”, but never found a thing he couldn’t tackle, and always performed the task before him.  Doc was loyal to the ideal of being an honest man, always dressed in integrity, and you knew that his word was his bond.

Doc and his brothers  have been loyal to our company.  They embraced all those things Milton J. Womack has stood for over the last 60 years and have been a part of its success.

Doc was family.  Willie and Leon are my family.  It truly hurts to lose a loved one, but the memories they leave behind are forever etched in our hearts.  Doc lived a wonderful life, made those around him better people, and he will be sorely missed.  God bless all of you.
