Robert Thomas Dunne, other known as “Rob”, at the age of 57 in the residence of Pasco County, Florida passed away on September 7th, 2021, surrounded by his wife, son, daughter, and son-in-law right by his side. On May 11th, 1964, Rob was born in San Francisco, California. Rob is the son of John Dunne and Joyce Cox. On the date of March 15th, 1997; Rob married the love of his life, Angela Taylor in Tampa, Florida. Together Rob and Angie shared 24 going on 25 years of marriage. On March 3rd, 1998, Rob and Angie welcomed their daughter, Taylor Piera. On March 8th, 2000, Rob and Angie welcomed their son, Robert Alan. Robs’ survivors include: his wife Angie, his daughter Taylor, his son Robert, his son-in-law Tyler, his mothers-in-law; Piera and Evelyn. Rob was preceded in death by his Father-in-law, Alan Byron Taylor.  Robs’ siblings included Kathy, Johnny, Timmy, Buddy, DD, and Tammy. Rob is also survived by a lot of nieces and nephews that loved him dearly and multiple brothers and sisters-in-law. Rob took pride in serving this country for 7 years in the Army. Rob was always proud to say that he was stationed in Japan for some time and had so many good stories to tell anyone that would listen to him. Throughout the life of Rob, he lived in many places. Rob had two places that he loved the most, Colorado and Florida. With Colorado, the mountains were his favorite and for Florida; this where he started his life with Angie. Rob worked at the Pinellas County Property Appraisers Office for 15 years as an Assistant Director. Rob started from the bottom and worked his way up. Rob was not only a mentor for the people of the office but considered them family. Angie and Rob worked within 5 minutes of each other and rode to work every single day together; each worked for Pinellas County. Angie currently works for the office of Pinellas County Code Enforcement, where the people there are family to Rob and Angie as well. Rob had many, many achievements in this lifetime; his most prized were his wife and children. Rob enjoyed so many things; he enjoyed being with his wife walking around at Home Goods for hours on end, going to Rays games with his daughter, coaching his son in baseball, having a cigar and whiskey with his son-in-law, eating out at restaurants especially Mexican ones; he enjoyed shooting Tequila and drinking Margaritas, but it had to have Patron. Boating was a new experience for Rob that he started to enjoy very much over the last 2 years. He fell in love with it; so much to the point that every time the boat show came around with the same boats; he dragged his whole family and close friends there dreaming of the day that he would finally be able to own one. We walked on every single boat, even the Yachts where we told the salesman that our budget was $400,000. While boating, Rob met so many people that became family. As you can tell, Rob has a big family. There are many things that people in this world love about Rob but with his family; we loved his strength, his compassion, his humor, his ability to solve problems, the way he built things, the way he gives advice even when you did not want to hear it, his mind, the way he talked with his hands and tapped you a 100 times during a conversation to make sure you are still hearing what he was saying, the way when he walked in a room and people instantly smiled, the way he was a friend, the way he was father, and especially the way he was a husband. Rob was dearly respected and admired by every single person that ever encountered him.  He will be deeply missed. As Rob always said, “You aren’t Dunne till your finished” and Robs story is not finished.

    Our sincere condolences to the Dunne family. Rob was my mentor, boss, and most importantly my FRIEND. Rob never had a bad day. His infectious laugh was a constant in our office, and I had the privilege of hearing it every day for over 2 1/2 years. He was an amazing leader for our team and the PAO as a whole – able to balance being your friend and boss at the same time. I will miss our conversations about life, family, God, and America – topics that he was so passionate about. He loved deeply and will be missed greatly. May your pain be replaced by the peace of great memories and laughter that was the essence of Rob.

    But if you search deep enough in your soul
    You’ll always find a slight reminder of me.
    Won’t somebody tell me,
    I just don’t understand
    The ways of the world today
    So I’m longing for the days of yesterday

    So much love we had for you, so much love we have for your family- Dunking Forever

    Our heartfelt condolences on your loss. It was a pleasure to know Rob since I first met him in 2009. He was a good man in so many ways. Funny, too. Shared many lunches together. His memory will be with me forever. He loved his family and talked about them a lot. As well as baseball and the water. He will be missed! The Dunne family will be in our thoughts and prayers.
    The ones we love are never gone; they live within our hearts.

    We met Rob many times at Folk University Gigs and admired how he enjoyed life and the music. He will sail into heaven on that new boat to eternity.

  • Kathy Snead says:

    Rob was the kind of guy who always saw the best in others. He was my boss for over 5 years and I have to say he was the best boss anyone could ask for. He cared about his staff as well as all of his co-workers. Rob was a humble guy, but he was so smart and so kind and compassionate. His sense of humor was ever present and he always made us laugh. I will always remember his laugh. This loss hit everyone who knew him very hard. I miss him so much.

  • Brittany Mason says:
