Robert Thomas Dunn
1944 - 2020
A Love of Life and a Life of Service

If you are a former client, colleague or friend of Robert, we would love to receive your messages of tribute, support or just a really good anecdote from Robert's rich and diverse life experiences. If you have something to contribute, could you please send an email to:
I regret to advise that my father and firm founder, Robert Thomas Dunn, died very unexpectedly at Northern Beaches Hospital on Thursday 17 September, 2020. He is sorely missed by all who worked with him in this legal practice and the many thousands of clients he served in Mona Vale since 1973.

Although his family and friends have been rocked by the sudden passing of such a giant figure in our lives, we do want to celebrate some of the many, many achievements Robert packed into his 76 years here on earth and despite our grief we are pulling together and working very hard to arrange a fitting Celeberation of Robert's amazing life.

A Christian Funeral Service for Robert will be held on the late afternoon of Friday 2 October 2020 at Mona Vale. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, a number of seperate venues are being arranged to safely accomodate the very large number of the Pittwater Community who wish to attend, plus a venue at Narooma for his South Coast friends. If you wish to attend one of these venues, please send an email to as we must allocate individual seats and have a list of attendees contact details recorded for each venue to comply with current regulations. We also note that those regulations will require registered guests to arrive at their allocated venue at 3:30pm to sign in. Robert was always thinking of others and would therefore encourage the wearing of facemasks just in case! However, as a tribute to Robert going out of this life still very fit and active, we ask that you wear a brightly coloured tie or a dress with a splash of colour to signify that Robert's was a life worth celebrating.

For those cannot attend one of the venues in person, a livestream of his funeral service will commence at 3:45pm and we encourage you to gather safely in small groups in your own home and watch the service together, sharing your memories of Robert and leaving comments if you wish. Robert loved to listen to his favourite music on YouTube, so it is fitting that his service and the musical tributes included in it will be broadcast on YouTube - the link to that livestream on YouTube is:
