    When asked in routine greeting “How are you?”, Dr. Dunlap’s signature response was “vicious”. Hardly the man we knew, but surely the lively spirit he cast. He was one of those who made patient care at Richard Young distinctive, compassionate and restorative. A big loss to a big family and all he touched with healing. With the Lord it is always Christmas. Farewell good and faithful servant.

    Dr. Dunlap was so interested in the education of psychiatry trainees in our residency program. He attended case conference presentations and Grand Rounds; for years; even presented at a Grand Rounds on the history of psychiatry. Such a gentleman….. He and Joan attended several graduation banquets honoring our residents who were graduating and moving on to practice psychiatry. I had another connection to the Dunlap family as my sons all attended St. Pius X/St. Leo School and knew Pat while he was working there. Wonderful family! I had not heard of Dr. Dunlap’s passing until seeing this obituary today (Jan. 8). Sorry I did not attend the funeral. My prayers are lifted up for the Dunlaps and i smile when thinking of some of my interactions with him. He always said he was vicious; he certainly had a “viciously huge heart.” You’ll be missed, Dr. D!
