On-the-go chef, Boy Scouts scoutmaster and member of the Burbank Salvation Army Harry Gunn, a dedicated volunteer for the city of Burbank, died of unknown causes Oct. 9 at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center. He was 79. He died just three months after his wife, Patricia Gunn. Both were known and loved by the Burbank community for their service. “You can say he died of heartbreak,” said his daughter, Wendy Gunn. “It was a special connection — wherever she volunteered, he would help, too.” A 44-year resident of Burbank, Gunn often cooked meals for other volunteers.

Jackson Bell In nearly four decades of volunteering, she's donated thousands of hours to worthy causes. She's served on scores of community organizations and city committees and she led the Burbank Library Services printer-cartridge recycling program that brought in $14,000 for the town's bookworms. And that was just in Gloria O'Donohoe's spare time. Well, what else is an active 72-year-old going to do? "Why sit at home when we've got all this action?"
