Who Was Warren Dunning?

Who Was Warren Dunning?

Warren Dunning was a great proponent for social justice. Besides being the founder of the Community Meals Program at Epiphany Episcopal Church, he was a board member for the Solano Interfaith Council, a board member for Heather House, Vice President of Episcopal Community Services of Northern California, Board Member of Camp Noel Porter, and with his wife of 50 years, Margaret, acted as the disaster coordinators for the Diocese of Northern California.

David Deerfeeder of Vacaville remembered Dunning fondly: “When I first attended Epiphany, Warren was there to welcome me. His warmth and kindness were like clear streams.”

The Rev. Lucretia Jevne, president of Episcopal Community Services, noting that Dunning worked tirelessly over the years for ECS, for Jubilee Ministries, and in several other capacities, all in the service of serving the least, the last and the lonely, spearheaded a special grant that ECS now awards each year to honor his memory and his ministry. “He modeled service to others for Christ. His death leaves a large hole in the life of our diocese,” she wrote.

Dunning died Feb. 9, 2016, of complications from lymphoma.

Warren was not only a father-figure for me...but was also simply "Grandpop" to my kids. His unconditional generosity, love, and service was and continues to be an inspiration to me in all that I do with those less-forunate.
We miss you, Grandpop! :)
