Richard E Dunbar

We are very saddened by the passing of Richard on January 20th, 2022 at home in Somerset, WI, at age 84. He was born in August, 1937, in Cadiz, IN, the son of Gladys and James Dunbar. He graduated from Central High School in South Bend, attended Kalamazoo College and was swept up into the computer industry. He is survived by wife Sharon, sister Karen, son Todd, daughters Deb, Susie and Kim, eight grandchildren, two great grandchildren and a couple on the way. Also left behind are step children, Jennifer and Thad Ingersoll. Richard was a computer geek and towboat enthusiast, building in 2004 a website eventually consisting of 3,000+ towboat photos mainly from the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. He loved working on his site and got many accolades from around the world from those admiring its usefulness. He worked 36 years as a computer programmer chiefly in St. Paul, MN, and also found much pleasure in boating and keeping in touch with computer and towboat friends. He enjoyed cruising the oceans around the world as well as up and down the Mississippi River. His bright mind, articulate language, intelligent opinions, generous heart and fun personality will leave a gaping hole in the lives of those who knew and loved him. And missing his welcoming, cozy lap are kitties Boomer, Henry, Milo and Willow. A date for the celebration of his life is still to be determined, when the weather is warmer. All are invited to share pictures, memories and stories.
