Trumbull County man honored for walking

WARREN, Ohio — Trumbull County commissioners honored a man from Newton Falls for his courageous walk through life on Wednesday.

Arthur Dunn, 75, received a resolution commending the many miles he has walked over the years. Dunn began walking after the death of his wife Doris back in 2008 by walking from Cincinnati to Newton Falls. After that walk, Art walked to Shanksville, Pennsylvania and the Pentagon in Washington D.C. in honor of the men and women who died in the 9-11 attack.

Most recently he packed up his cart and walked around the perimeter of the state of Ohio, keeping a journal along the way. Fourth graders in Newton Falls intermediate school kept in touch with Dunn on his trip.

“These trips were basically to motivate and inspire the younger kids, the fourth graders, and to be recognized by the county it’s just unbelievable,” said Dunn.

He said he has no more plans to walk at this time, but if he gets the call from the Lord he will do what he says.
