A native of Washington who was reared in Severna Park and Pasadena, he was a graduate of Northeast High School.

In addition to fishing, he liked to ride his Harley Davidson motorcycle and was called "Polar Bear" by friends he rode with.

He is survived by a son, Garrick E. Sievers of Glen Burnie; his parents, Margaret and Robert E. Sievers Sr. of Pasadena; two sisters, Linda L. Webb of Pasadena and Jeanette Marie Wildman of Traverse City, Mich.; his maternal grandparents, Inda Lee and Fred B. Maddox, both of Alexandria, Va.; and many nieces and nephews.

The family suggested memorial contributions to the American Cancer Society.

Services for Mr. Dunnock, who was 82, will be conducted at 2 p.m. today at the Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit in Orleans, Mass.

He moved to Cape Cod after retiring as president of the company that had operated cafeterias at several locations downtown, on North Avenue and finally on York Road in Govans and Towson. He was a life member of the Restaurant Association of Maryland.

Born in Baltimore, he was a graduate of the Polytechnic Institute and attended the Johns Hopkins University before his graduation from the hotel school at Cornell University.

While in Baltimore, he was a founder of the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Tent of the Saints and Sinners and a member of Rotary International and the Eastern Shore Society.

On Cape Cod, he organized annual Founder's Day dinners in Brewster, was active in historical and preservation groups and did more than 7,500 hours of volunteer work at the Cape Cod Hospital.

He was also fond of deer hunting and deep sea fishing.
