         Richard Edward, the son of Edward and Alexandra (Lourronen) Dunlap, was born December 13, 1916 in International Falls, MN.  He was a veteran of WWII.  He enlisted in the Army in September of 1942.  In the Signal Corp, he served in the European Theater.  He was discharged in November of 1945.  He went back to work at Electric Machinery Mfg. Co.  On April 22, 1961, he married Lillian Belverud. In 1964, as a Field Service Engineer, he traveled to many foreign countries and a majority of states.  A job in Manila, Philippines took him around the world. He retired from this Company in 1979.  As a private pilot with instrument rating, his greatest joy was flying cross-country to some place of interest, which was most of North America.  On a vacation with Lil, he traveled around the earth again, cruised on the Nile and walked on the Great Wall.  A citizen of the greatest generation, he loved his God, country and his work.  He always had a book near by, liked photography and gardening.  They moved to Faribault in 1994 and spent winter months in Donna, TX.
         He is survived by his wife, Lillian, of Faribault; two brothers-in-law, Harold (and Florence) Belverud of West Concord, Lloyd Belverud of Kenyon, and a nephew, Ron (and Julie) Watermolen of FL.
         He was preceded in death by his parents and a sister, Myrna Dunlap.
