d. August 17, 2020

Seven Mile Ford, Va.

James "Jimmy" Dungan, age 96, went to be with his Lord, August 17, 2020 in Kettering, Ohio.

He was a man who loved life and was a kind, loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend. He will be greatly missed by all. Jimmy had the privilege of growing up in the Seven Mile Ford / Chilhowie area, which he described as a happy place to be as a child. After high school he served in the Air Force during World War II, and his plane was shot down resulting in Jimmy becoming a prisoner of war in Germany until the war ended. He told stories many times of how the Lord protected him throughout his life. After the war he married and became a railroad dispatcher in Dayton, Ohio.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Alma and Aubrey Dungan; wife, Sarah Marie Dungan; and brother-in-law, H.C. Hart.
