THE MAN BEHIND THE COMPANY

It was 1965 when our father, John Dunn, realized his goal to start his own oil business.  With a single oil truck and a service van, John ran a one-man operation from his home in Maynard, delivering oil and servicing burners.  His wife, (our Mom) Lee, worked beside him as secretary and bookkeeper.  They knew all their customers by name; and still do to this day!

John worked from morning until night, often seven days a week.  Though exhausted at times, he was always ready to answer any emergencies.  We can even remember him working from his bed while sick with pneumonia; surrounded by oil tickets, determined that his customers would get their deliveries on time!  Last year at this time, many of you know he was severely ill with Lyme Disease, and yet, he continued to labor over the cares and concerns for all of our Dunn Oil customers.

In 1973, John doubled the size of the company by purchasing Maynard Co-op Oil.  He moved from his home to a little office on Main Street, then again up to Acton Street, and finally to our present location on Euclid Avenue. 

John is still hard at work making sure the company runs smoothly and that jobs are performed with the same level of personal attention that marked the early years. 

And if the name Dunn Oil Company has become legendary for good service among the people of this area, we owe it all to John Dunn, our boss, father and friend! 

Thanks Dad!

Carl Edward Dunn

Born in Concord, MA on Oct. 29, 1956
Departed on Nov. 13, 2009 and resided in Stow, MA.

Stow – Carl Edward "Kippy" Dunn, 53, of Stow, died suddenly at his home on November 13, 2009. Carl was born October 29, 1956 to John and Lee Dunn of Stow.
Carl is survived by his wife Anna (Zmijak) Dunn, his daughters: Melissa Dunn of Stow, Meghan Dunn of Berlin, Michelle and Mary Dunn both of Stow; His grandchildren: Mya Carli and Logan Bradley; his parents: John and Lee Dunn of Stow; his brothers: John and his wife Sue of Bolton and Eric and his wife Aimee of Groton: his sisters: Laura Dunn and her husband Peter McGuirk of Biddeford, ME; Patricia Boucher and her husband Andrew of Maynard; Suzen Raven and her husband Ian of Stow and Liz Searle of Westford and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Carl graduated from Nashoba Regional High School and has been a dedicated employee of Dunn Oil Co. a family owned business in Maynard.
Although Kippy is no longer with us physically, his free spirit and strength will be carried on through everyone that was fortunate enough to know him. He was always more than willing to help anyone who needed it. He was an avid outdoor adventurer, sharing his love of nature with his family and pursuing his passion of hiking. He was also a collector of antique cars.
He never set limits for himself and never stopped learning. If he didn't know how to do something he'd teach himself how.
He conquered Mount Washington numerous times in his life despite being born with cerebral palsy – he never let it define him. 
A private memorial service was held for the family and close friends. 
Memorial contributions may be made to the Appalachian Mountain Club, 5 Joy St., Boston, MA 02108 or the charity of one's choice.
