The family of David Leonard Dunkley expresses appreciation and love for a respected husband, caring father and grandfather. After a courageous battle with cancer, David passed away on January 13, 2013 surrounded by his loving family.

David was born in Provo, Utah, to Donald K. Dunkley and Betty Josephine Smith on April 16, 1960. He grew up with one sister, Lori Perkins (Ramon B.) Morgan. He also enjoyed his association with his uncle J. Paul (Johanna) Smith.

David's growing up years were spent in Provo and Duchesne, Utah. He attended Provo and Timpview High Schools, where he was a member of the first graduating class. He also attended Brigham Young University. David served an honorable mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. David married Terri Jean Thiel on December 17, 1983. The marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple. They are the parents of three children: Brandi Lynn (Nathan) Palmer, Jonathan Don (Adrienne) Dunkley, and Justin Ray Dunkley; and grandparents of two grandchildren, Camri Lynn and Sawyer Kim.
After having grown up with a love of all construction machinery, David worked as a heavy equipment operator in the excavation industry. As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, David served in many positions, including Bishop for several years. David grew up loving to watch and play baseball, and was a member of the Timpview High State Championship Baseball team. Another of Dave's passions was his drum set! He kept the beat for numerous bands, including his favorite, "Flight". David's greatest joy, however, was found in serving others. Because of his incredible love for people, he will be remembered by so many angel friends. Thanks to all of you.

Interment, Provo City Cemetery.
