JOSEPH C. DUNN, JR. was born May 13, 1982 at Newport Hospital in Newport, Rhode Island to Joseph and Christine (Homer) Dunn. He was raised in Newport, Rhode Island and Virginia Beach, Virginia during which he received his education. Following school, he returned to Rhode Island and took on the role of helping his paternal grandfather who was very ill. Following his grandfather’s death, Joey then moved to Port St. Lucie, Florida to be closer to his mother and grandparents. He took a job at Gold Coast Fire Equipment. He enjoyed being close to his family to help out. His mother made the move to rural Garretson, South Dakota in 2007. In late 2008, Joey moved to Brandon, South Dakota to be closer to his family. He worked various jobs until late 2010 when he became employed at John Morrell’s in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
