Jeffrey Alan Lunn, 60, of Falmouth, formerly of Oak Bluffs, died on February 2, at Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton after a long illness.
He was born at Martha’s Vineyard Hospital in Oak Bluffs on February 4, 1952, and graduated from Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School in 1970. He joined the U.S. Army in September of 1972 and was a heavy equipment operator. He was stationed in Frankfurt, Germany, for many years. He was discharged from the Army in July 1978 and held several different jobs. He did finish work for a builder in the Falmouth area until he moved to Florida. There he worked for Nationwide Boats as a dispatcher and Joule Yacht Transport, where he hauled boats for many boat shows. He was also an OTR driver/dispatcher in Clearwater, Fla.
He returned home to Falmouth in 2001, after attending his nephew’s graduation. He worked for Teledyne-Benthos in North Falmouth and Cumberland Farms in downtown Falmouth. He loved socializing, especially on Facebook with his buddies. Everyone always looked forward for his “Daily Thoughts to Ponder.” He was a family man and a father figure for his nephews. Four years ago he was reunited with his son, Rusty, who is the apple of his eye. He was so happy after finding him.
Jeffrey is survived by his son, Russell Dean Lunn 3rd “Rusty”; his sisters, Crystal Lunn and Victoria Duart; his nephews, Jason, Nicholas, and Timothy Lunn, Russell Daniel Lunn, and Gloria Lunn, and many nieces, nephews, grandchildren and cousins.
