Rochester - Bruce E. Dunn passed away on June 2, 2024 at the age of 85. He is survived by his loving wife of 44 years, Susan (Heutsche) Dunn; his 6 children, Rachel (John) Allen, Kelly Sciacca, Heather (Brian) Sabo, Madeline Dunn, Carmen (Andres Rosado) Dunn, and Brenda Dunn; his grandchildren, Johnny, Riley, Taylor, Ross, Vinnie, Sadie, Julian, Tyler, Ryan, Bry'Onna, Andy, Courtney, Emma, Melvin, Lexi, Albert, Isaiah, Leilani, Justin, Tony, Dominic, Will, Michael, Mia, and Aurora; and his sister, Olivia Grose. Bruce was predeceased by his parents, Perry and Ethel Dunn; his brother, John Dunn; his sister-in-law, Carol Rowley Dunn; and his nephew, Stephen Dunn. 

Bruce attended Hilton Central School and graduated in 1956 as Valedictorian. He was a Veteran of the United States Air Force and served from 1961 - 1966. He attended the University of Miami and graduated in 1969 with a Bachelor's Degree in Education. He taught Phys Ed in Hilton from 1969 - 1994. He loved his students and was loved by them. He was a kind and gentle person, quick witted and funny, who always had a smile on his face. He loved to tell jokes. In his leisure he enjoyed singing and playing the banjo, playing golf, and watching his favorite sports teams, the Buffalo Bills and Syracuse Orangemen. Most of all he enjoyed spending time with his family, beloved grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. His presence will be deeply missed.
