Scottie Dunn age 42 of Amarillo was tragically taken from this life on October 21, 2022.

The family will receive guests on Friday, October 28, 2022 from 5 PM until 7 Pm at Schooler Funeral Home, 4100 South Georgia.  A memorial service will be held on Saturday, October 29, 2022 at 10:00 AM at St. Mary’s Catholic Cathedral, 1200 S. Washington.  Rev. Tony Neusch will officiate.   Arrangements are by Schooler Funeral Home, Amarillo, Texas.

Scottie was born in Campton, Kentucky on August 20, 1980 to his parents, Allen Dunn and Garnett Gilliam.  He attended Wolf Co. High School.  He moved to Texas around 2000.   Scottie loved all things “trucks,” and wanted to drive from an early age, following in his father’s footsteps. Before moving to Texas he drove trucks in Kentucky for a living.  He worked for Dee King Trucking from 2004 until 2014 and again from 2018 until 2021 when he began driving for K3 Towing until the time of his death.  From 2014 until 2018 he worked for Texas Sand and Gravel.

Scottie loved watching dirt track racing and spent quite a bit of time out at Route 66 enjoying the races.  He also liked watching Kentucky Wildcats Basketball and the Cincinnati Reds Baseball with his late grandfather, “Papa Dunn” and his father.   He could be described as a sport addict! He enjoyed sports of all types and especially enjoyed making fun of Texas when they lost.

Scottie loved the simple country lifestyle, John Wayne, Reba, sitting on the rocking bench in the rain, and cook-outs. Enjoying a cold beer with a friend and playing corn–hole at the lake with family.  He would pay for a stranger’s dinner to pay a little kindness forward and just to see them smile.  He loved movies and often would come up with movie quotes to entertain those around him.  He was a huge fan of the comedian Gabriel Iglesias better known as “Fluffy.”  Scottie’s smile and humor would always light up the room. He, however,  could be a little rascal as well; like throwing a bucket of cold water on Kristy while she showered or convincing the kids to do it so that he didn’t get in trouble!

Scottie absolutely adored his children.  Well actually he adored all children, probably because he had such an innocent childlike personality.  He loved to have fun and play.  He would climb to the top of the house to play Frisbee with them.  The kids would listen to music and sing and dance with him as Kristy prepared dinners.  He would run races, always ensuring he won and he played endless hours of Wii.  Some of his favorite times were the times they spent together as a family going to the fair or Wonderland and riding every ride possible.  Family vacations were also a favorite time of his.

Scottie married Kristy McKay on May 17, 2014, the family attended St. Mary’s and Scottie was planning on being baptized into the catholic faith.   He loved to sing and often made up lyrics of songs just to serenade Kristy. He loved to make her smile and he was always able to get her to smile even on the cloudiest of days.  He romanced her with silly jokes and date nights. They enjoyed all the times spent with one another and often Kristy would go on runs with him.   Scottie captured her heart from the beginning and they shared a tremendous love, they were soulmates and most importantly they were each other’s best friend.

Scottie loved life, he loved his family and his friends immensely. He eagerly made it his duty to make people smile and he did, he lit up the world!  He could turn a frown upside down, always saying, "I'm in my prime!" He was a husband, a brother, and the best dad the kids could have asked for. He touched many lives and he will be forever loved and deeply missed.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Edward and Loretta Gillum and James and Hazel Dunn.

Scottie is survived by his wife Kristy; three daughters, Lexxa Lynn Bias of Denton, Dakota Ann Dunn of Panhandle, and Addison Paige Bias of Amarillo, Texas; two sons, Rowdie Lane Bias of Amarillo and Dylan Scott Dunn of Panhandle; his father, Alan Dunn and his wife Sharman of Amarillo; his mother,  Garnett Jessie and the late Donald of Morehead, Kentucky; his in-laws, James and Debbie McKay of Amarillo; his brother, Steven Dunn and his wife Serenity of Morehead, Kentucky; his step-brother, Charlie Malone of Louisville, Kentucky;  his step-sisters, Clara Goar and her husband Thomas Sanders of Georgia and Christy Little of Hazel Green Kentucky; his sister in law, Kendra Meyers; his niece Alyssa “Monkey”;  his nephew, Hunter; and many other aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, family members and friends.
