Jim Dunning of Bloomington peacefully passed away on Monday, June 15, 2020 at his home surrounded by his family after years of various chronic medical conditions.

He was born September 15, 1943 in Chicago IL to James and Catherine Dunning. In 1958, his Chicago-based baseball team made the Pony League World Series Championships in Pennsylvania. In 1959, he was able to attend the World Series to watch his beloved Chicago White Sox. He played softball for many years here and was inducted into the City of Bloomington Softball Hall of Fame. He also enjoyed bowling and racquetball and was always up for a good game of cards or trip to the horse track or casino with friends. An avid sports fan, he always had a game on the TV or would attend a game in person. He had season IU basketball tickets for many years and would take his kids to the post season basketball team banquets.

He met the love of his life, Gail, at an Illinois Woolworths where he was a manager. They married and were transferred to Bloomington. They had fallen in love with their new hometown, so he moved onto Sears where he worked until retirement.

One of Jim’s greatest passions was being involved in community safety. He began as a volunteer firefighter in Perry Township. Over the years, he served the Perry-Clear Creek Fire Protection District in various capacities.

Jim is preceded in death by his parents and 2 sisters, Sara and Mary. He is survived by his loving wife, Gail, of 54 years, their children Lynn (Mike) Kinstler of Greenwood IN, Jim (Kim) Dunning of Bloomington IN, Scott (Anne) Dunning of Brownsburg IN, and 5 grandchildren, Teighlor, Natalie, Brett, Aidan and Meredith.

The Funeral Chapel is handling the cremation and visitation arrangements. Visitation will be on Monday, June 22 from 3 pm to 7 pm at The Funeral Chapel 3000 E. Third St. Bloomingotn. We will be observing gathering restrictions, with masks preferred. A memorial service will be held on a future date.

Dear Gail and family my sincere condolences on the passing of Jim, for many years he blessed us all with his jokes, kidding, and never-ending smile. He was truly one of a kind. You will all have many great memories that will help through the hard times.

......Many years ago, I met Jim when he was department manager in the Paint & Hardware at Sears in Bloomington. I was employee at Sears in Columbus & we would come over for meetings & training. He would always light up a room with his chuckle and smile during those times! My manager in Columbus was Gary Wood , and you get those 2 guys together and it was non stop laughing!!!!!! I am sure those who knew him will miss him, and heaven will be brighter with him there. Peace be with his family.
