Jonny was a free spirit in life, thinking rules didn’t apply to him. He was a good friend to many and had a great sense of humor.

Jonny enjoyed hot rods, auto body and paint, rock crawling, shooting firearms in the desert, riding motorcycles and spending time with friends on the lake and an occasional casino visit.

Jonny was preceded in death by his mother, Linda Lee Dunkirk and half brother, Troy Dunkirk.

He is survived by his father, Dennis (Maridee) Dunkirk, of Lake Havasu City; half-brother, Cory Dunkirk, of Phoenix; two step-brothers, Adam (Janelle) Sorensen, of Owatonna, Minnesota and Nathan (Ashley) Sorensen, of Faribault, Minnesota; two step-sisters, Michelle Kent, of Chandler and Mandee Gary, of Chatfield, Minnesota; uncles, Darrell (Luella) Jensen, of Faribault, Minnesota, Don Jensen, of Owatonna, Minnesota, Larry (Tana) Dunkirk, of Escondido, California, and Lance Dunkirk, of Loveland, Colorado; aunts, Debbie Van Ravenhorst, of Shakopee, Minnesota and Tracy Dunkirk Rusinyak, of Minneapolis, Minnesota, along with many cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.
