OLIVER E. “JOE” NUNN JR.

BRIDPORT — Oliver E. Nunn Jr., known to all as Joe, took his final breath surrounded by his loving family on March 8, 2024.

Joe was born in Peacham, Vt., on April 17, 1943, spent his adolescence in the Northeast Kingdom, did his military service in the Air Force in Germany, and then settled down in Addison County. Joe held various jobs in his lifetime; he was a Middlebury policeman, an automobile mechanic, a real estate agent, and for twenty years an aerospace technician, after which time he retired due to complications from Parkinson’s Disease.

Joe is survived by his wife of 36 years, Karen; their son, Chad; daughters Holly Nunn, Jennifer Severance and her husband Greg, and Jodi Litchfield and her partner Jake; as well as six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Surviving family also includes Joe’s brother, Robert Wishart (Roberta), and his sisters, Margaret Moss (Greg), Elizabeth Traver (Andy), Patricia Dent (John), and Sally Paul (Ron). Joe is predeceased by his grandparents, Helen and John Gilman, parents Joyce and George Wishart, and granddaughter Ashley Boyd.

Despite his health challenges, Joe lived a rich and full life, one filled with his love of fishing and hunting, his devotion to NASCAR, his Notre Dame and Green Bay football teams, and to Yankee baseball. If something needed to be fixed, Joe taught himself how to do it. If someone needed a good joke, Joe was ready with one of his legendary puns. He will be best remembered for his kind smile, his sharp wit, and his love for his wife Karen. No formal service will be held, but the family is planning a celebration of Joe’s life at his and Karen’s home in Bridport this summer. ◊
