In Loving Memory

Gunn, James “Jim” A., Jr.


age 84, passed away on Friday, December 28, 2018. He was born on September 25, 1934 in St. Louis, Missouri to James and Ethel Gunn, Sr. On April 27, 1957, he married the love of his life, Kathleen (Kay) Lawlor. They were married for 61 wonderful years.

Jim was preceded in death by his parents and his brother,  David. He is survived by his wife, Kay, and six children: Jim, III (JoAnne), Mike (Mona), Joe  (Ellen), Greg (Kandice), John (Beth), and Mary (Paul) Michalski.

Jim attended St. Ann grade school (Class of 1948) and was a proud graduate of CBC (Class of 1952). First and foremost, Jim was dedicated to his family.
