Charles "Chuck" Dunbar

Charles "Chuck" Dunbar, 51, of Brevard, formerly of Cleveland, Ohio, passed away June 4, 2017, after a courageous, almost year-long battle with cancer.

He was outgoing, dependable, honest, generous and hardworking.

He spent his childhood in Lorain County, Ohio, as well as in multiple locations in the southeast while his father was active in the United States Marine Corps.

He later managed various gas stations and restaurants in northern Ohio, including one on Lake Erie in Vermilion, and most recently served as operations director of Zaxby's restaurants in North Carolina and Virginia.

He and his wife, Kimberly met in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1997, and were married the following year. They and their daughter, Sophie, moved to Brevard about six years ago. During his time here, he met many people in the community through his work with Zaxby's and his involvement in Brevard Rotary Club.

He worked long hours and traveled often, yet he made time to do things he enjoyed. He loved taking his daughter, Sophie, on fun outings, spending time with friends, announcing Brevard College games for WSQL radio, reading the paper and watching movies. He also fondly remembered a trip he and his family took to South Africa in 2007.

He is survived by his wife of 18 years, Kimberly Dunbar, daughter, Sophie and mother-in-law, Barbara Hotaling, all of Brevard; daughter, Angela Ludvik and her son, Lukas, of Mentor, Ohio; mother, Sandra Dunbar, sister, Kelly Dunbar and brother, Mike Dunbar, all of Lorain County, Ohio; sister- and brother-in-law, Heather and Jo Hotaling, of Melbourne, Australia; dear friends, Drew Stevens, Jonathan Stoll and Drew Stewart, all of Brevard, Patrick Combs, of Waynesville and Jim Rodgers, of Athens, Ga .; and many other nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, Charles Leonard Dunbar.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 17, 2017, at the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd, with Rev. Mary Hinkle Shore officiating.

A reception at the church will follow the service, at which time the family will greet friends.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial gifts be directed to the Dunbar Benefit Account, Fifth Third Bank, 567 N. Broad St., Brevard NC 27812, or to the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd for Outreach Ministries, 22 Fisher Road, Brevard, NC 28712.
