Kelly Dunbar, 65, of Bridge City, Texas, passed away on April 18, 2018, at his home.

 

Born in Corpus Christi, Texas, on October 9, 1952, he was the son of Hazel Rushing Dunbar and Lane Dunbar. Kelly worked as a paint foreman by trade until 1999 when he went to work for Foreman’s Construction as a Chemical Applicator until retiring in 2013. He was devoted to reading the Bible and the word of the Lord was very dear to his heart. Kelly loved baseball and was a diehard Astros fan. His daughter meant everything to him and he loved spending time with his grandchildren. He also adored his little dog, Buster, who had been his constant companion for the past several years. Kelly was quick witted and had a huge sense of humor that was enjoyed by many on Facebook these last few years. He loved his family dearly and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
