Casper Michael Dunkel III, 70, returned to our Heavenly Father, on August 6, 2022. Casper was born on June 4, 1952, to Casper Michael Dunkel II and Virginia Claire Harper- Dunkel in Los Angeles, California.
Casper met the love of his life Terri Lyn Coburn-Dunkel in 1982 later that year making her his wife. Together they raised three beautiful children Casper IV, Chad, and Samantha.
Casper was known for being incredibly passionate about his work as an Industrial Journeyman Electrician which allowed him to travel the country with his family before settling down in Salt Lake City.
Casper was a free spirit who loved and cared for all of those he knew. He would give you his last dime if you needed it. He was always there to lend a helping hand if he could, and if he couldn’t help, he would supervise by telling you how you could do it better.
Later in his life he would find little projects around the house that he could tinker with when he wasn’t in Wendover with high hopes of winning it big. Casper thrived on engaging anyone around him into an interesting conversation from politics to a new song he found.
Casper enjoyed listening to Rolling Stones on his record player and collecting memorabilia from World War II, stamps, coins, and trinkets of things.
Casper leaves behind his wife Terri Lyn Coburn-Dunkel of Layton, UT; their 3 children Casper IV (Doniele) Dunkel of Clinton, UT, Chad Dunkel of Layton, UT, and Samantha Stevens of Montpelier, Idaho; grand-children Casper V, Aaliyah, Autumn, Kobe, Endymion, Serenity, and Sapphire; sister LaVerne King; and many nieces and nephews.
He is proceeded in death by his parents Casper II and Virginia; sisters Josephine ‘Jo-Jo’ Michelle Dunkel and Rosemary ‘Rosie’ Dunkel-Van Dyck; grand-daughter Nicole Rae Dunkel.
