He remained in St. John Colony with his family during his early years where he received his education and professed his faith in Christ at Zion Union Baptist Church.

Lelmer Dunn, Willie Mae and the family moved to Corpus Christi, Texas in 1940. Lelmer Dunn joined St. John Baptist Church where Rev. J. Terrell Stewart was the pastor.
