Heath, also called Hoopie from his youth, was born May 4, 1966, in Houston to William Howard Dunn and Carolyn Ann Davis Dunn. He grew up in Bremond and graduated from Bremond High in 1984.
Heath grew up working cattle and riding horses with his Dad and worked after high school cowboying, which included chasing bulls that got loose in town. He worked at GATX for a while, and then worked in the oil and gas fields all over Texas.
He loved to hunt and fish and play dominoes and enjoyed his friends. He raised horses and rode when he was off work.
