Tribute & Message From The Family


Philip "Mikey" Dunson was granted his angel wings on July 24, 2016. His final moments were spent surrounded by his family and friends in his short, yet very memorable life.
Mikey's life may seem too short to many, but those who were touched by him understood the quality of life far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. His gentle smile, happy demeanor, and mastery of all video games brought so much joy to his mother, family and friends.
Although Mikey was born with special needs, he gave us all courage and hope and reminded us of the preciousness of life. He loved to spend time with his family and friends as he conquered the next level of his newest game. Mikey could spend hours playing multiple games, on many different devices, all at the same time while watching one of his many favorite videos. Mikey's favorite time of the day was the moments he spent each evening at bedtime with his mom as they said prayers and sang "You Are My Sunshine."
Mikey was born on March 31, 2003 in Toledo, Ohio to Teresa McCance-Dunson and made his home in Temperance, Michigan with his mother. He attended Monroe County Intermediate School District and cherished the time he spent with his teachers. He was also cared for by many home care nurses throughout the years who he loved dearly. Mikey's mom wishes to give a special thank you to Toledo Children's Hospital, ProMedica Home Infusion, ProMedica Lab and ProMedica Pharmacy Counter who provided exceptional, family oriented, life-saving care numerous times during his 13 wonderful years.
He is survived by his mother, Teresa McCance-Dunson of Temperance; sister Tiffany (Joshua) Storrer of Archbold, Ohio and brother Tyler Powers of Leslie, Michigan. He is also survived by his grandparents, Fred and Mildred McCance and Mike and Janice Dunson, nieces and nephews, Brady, Piper, Silas, Abram and Avery, aunts and uncles, Tammy (Jeff) Nofziger, Kelly (Russ) Fairbanks and Adam (Heather) Dunson, many cousins, and friends. Mikey was preceded in death by his Aunt, Tina Marie Lawler in 1996.
