Knoxville lawyer Paul Edward Dunn died on July 21. He was 87. A veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, Dunn graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Law in 1961. Dunn practiced law in Knoxville for over forty years. He began practicing with renowned criminal defense lawyer Ray H. Jenkins, and remained with the firm Jenkins and Jenkins until 1995, when he became a founding member of the firm Dunn, MacDonald and Coleman. He was named a Senior Counselor by the Tennessee Bar Association, and an honorary member of the Winfield Dunn cabinet. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to St. Jude's Research Hospital or the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
