Ian Dunn, whose deep voice and personable writing style were well-known in the Leavenworth area, died Saturday at Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee. He was 60.

His brother Charlie Dunn confirmed the death. Dunn was diagnosed with ALS in spring 2021 and died of complications related to the neurodegenerative disease. ALS, short for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, causes the brain to lose connection with the muscle.
