Bobby Joe Dunn Sr. Retired Construction Foreman Bob was a spunky red head born to Bill and Dorothy Dunn on May 11, 1946. Bob left this world to join those waiting in heaven on February 22, 2014. Graduating from Redwood High School in 1964, Bob joined the U.S. Army, serving from 1964 - 1971. He met Barbara Welch and made her what he always referred to as his "bride" on Aug. 4, 1967. He worked for Lyles Construction Company for 25 years and retired from there. He was an independent, hardworking man who put everyone's needs before his own. Bob was an avid hunter and outdoorsman. He found solace in the mountains and spent time there both alone and sharing this passion with his family. He loved to barbeque and having the family around his home brought him much joy. He was also a "motor head". For anyone who knew Bob, you knew he could build one bad hot-rod motor. Bob was a dedicated family man, friend and the rock of the family. He is survived by his wife Barbara and their four children, Jim and Cindy Lee, Crystal Dunn, Joe and Ellie Dunn, Scott Cunningham and Cori Dunn. He also leaves behind his grandchildren, Derrick and Amanda Hendrick, Kaitlin McCarty, Megan McCarty, Zachariah Lee, Russ Lee and one great grandson, Logan Hendrick. He also leaves behind three sisters, Jim and Jeannie Bean, JoAnn Finch and Brenda Welch along with one brother, Bobby and Sonia Welch and numerous Aunts, Uncles, nieces, nephews and dear friends. A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, March 2, 2014 from 2 - 4 PM. Please contact a family member for information and directions. Arrangements by Miller Memorial Chapel, Visalia.
