Maurice L. Dunn

December 18, 1977 ~ July 1, 2019 (age 41)


December 18, 1977, there was a wonderful occurrence in Lakewood, New Jersey, the birth of Maurice L. Dunn, to the late Leeroy Thornton and Martita Dunn. Maurice was presented to the world to bring joy, laughter, and hope to all whom he encountered. Maurice attended Reading High School and was a master barber at Royalty Cuts where he was known for his fresh cuts, designs, and fades. His charismatic smile, big hugs, and positive energy will be missed by all. He loved spending time with his children and family.


Maurice will be remembered as a proud patriarch with a generous heart, brilliant smile, and a zest for life. In his downtime, Maurice loved music, dancing, and singing.  He lived a healthy life and was a true sports fan. Dallas Cowboys and the Baltimore Ravens were his favorite teams. He was also a huge fan of Ray Lewis.


A loving father, he leaves to cherish his memory, his mother, Martita Dunn-Thornton of Reading, his eight children; Sadea, Rahmel, Raeshon, Liajah, Jaliah, Elias, Zaccai, Syier of Reading; four brothers Quaadir Thornton, Tyriek Thornton, Tyshon Dunn, Endaisha Thornton all of the Reading area; eight grandchildren, and his grandfather, Oliver Hoffman.  He was predeceased by his grandmother, Nina Epes.
