Tony Dunn's obituary as posted in his ".22 BOX" publication
Anthony "Tony" Dunn
On Friday, December 18, 1992 at 11:30 P.M. the world
of cartridge collecting lost one of its finer students and I lost a very
close friend. A young man of 53.
Tony was best known among those that collected .22 boxes. Tony and
myself started the Association for Study and Research of .22 Caliber
Rimfire Cartridges (ASR22CRC) in 1985. Publishing the ".22 BOX" as a
means of disseminating information for those interested in .22 rim fire
boxes and singles cartridges. For the last several years he edited the
".22 BOX". His work in cataloging all the known variations of .22 boxes
was a task very few would even think to undertake, no less do. Tony's
book "A Catalog of .22 Boxes of the World" will be a living tribute.
Hopefully someone will step forward to continue this monumental task he
started and did such a outstanding job of. He also co-authored with Don
Blyth, "The .22 Rimfires of Canada". The ASR22CRC will live on. I plan
to do the next couple of issues until a new editor is found.
He leaves behind a legacy for future generations of collectors, a family
and more friends than most people know. To his wife Nancy, his son
Randy, his daughter Sherry, his mother Mildred, and his grand children,
our thoughts are with you in this, the most trying of times. May the
Supreme Collector above keep him happy cataloging that vast collection
