Prayers go out to Bryan's family and friends. I just found out today about his passing and remember him as a baby and little boy. The Dunbar's lived across the street from me and my daughter and Bryan were best friends...her first best friend. Bryan was a blessing from the day he was born and I'm sure he touched many hearts in his short life. Barbara Slaton Wilhelm, September 13, 2016 I just found out. I loved debating with Bryan on political issues, medicine, and many other things. He loved his girlfriend Ashleigh so much, and I am so sad to hear he has passed. He was a sweet guy I've known over 15 years :( Rest in peace Bryan! Jessica Williams (Russell), July 28, 2016 Bryan, I didn't know you well, but we had a similar group of friends and we all hung out at times over the years. I can only imagine how difficult it is for the close family and friends you leave behind, but your loss is a shock, and no less of a loss- to those of us who weren't as close to you. I wasn't able to make your memorial, but know that you are in all of our hearts and minds, and will not soon be forgotten. May your memory and your soul be at peace, and may my thoughts be with the family and girlfriend, Ashleigh, you leave behind. Peace be with you all. Pana S, January 19, 2016 I clean the building where Bryan worked, so that's where I got to know him. Some times he's there late at night working so we talked, maybe about disc throwing, he was teaching me about, sometimes we talked about cars or just everyday life, I commented on the new look with the beard and mustache, He's going to be missed. RIP my friend Elza Goff, January 17, 2016 Bryan was smart, funny, and kind - I always enjoyed talking to him and seeing what his latest project was in the garage when I drove up to my parents house. Bryan was solid and dependable, and he was always very kind and helpful to my parents as they got older. Bryan, you will be greatly missed, and you were greatly loved by many. None of us can ask for much more than that - Caryn Voskuil, January 16, 2016 I had heard so many great things from my daughter, Liz, who worked with Bryan, and my son, Correbtt, who shared life directing moments with Bryan that I had the goal to stop by his work to meet him and embarrass my daughter while there. Not meeting him will always be a sad moment in my life. David Tate, January 14, 2016 Bryan Dunbar was an extremely smart person who is what I would call an "Einstein" when it comes to cars, trucks, etc. He helped me with my Duramax one day and found that we both had something in common and that was diesel engines and fast vehicles. Often at work he would call me into his office tell me to shut the door and we would watch diesel videos for 30 minutes or so at a time, or until someone came looking for us. I'm going to miss those times. Bryan had a brilliant mind to just about anything that you could think of. You will be missed but not forgotten my friend. Keep an eyes on us down here brother. Bobby Colt Steen, January 13, 2016 Ride free buddy, we were just starting to have fun. colin lewis, January 12, 2016 I am shocked to hear this news. Bryan was a good friend ever since we were in high school Choir together. I still remember one time (half a lifetime ago now) that Bryan and I sang the motet "Lady Lovely Art Thine Eyes" as part of a quartet with Chris Czechowski and Chris Wang at the Vines Humanities Baroque Picnic. In later years, we continued to hang out (though sadly not since the demands of parenting took over a couple years back) and I always enjoyed spending time with Bryan. He was such a good guy, so kind and so full of life. I'll always remember his goofy sense of humor. I will miss him. I will be praying for Ashleigh and all of Bryan's family and friends for strength in this time of mourning. -- Anthony “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted." Matthew 5:4 "For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” 'Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?'" 1 Corinthians 15:52-55 "My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.” John 14:2-4 Anthony Ricciardelli, January 12, 2016 I met Bryan at a high school choir competition in good ol' New Orleans 15yrs ago. He was so sweet and made me laugh. I'll never forget our time together those few days. Despite never seeing each other again we kept in touch via email and social media. My condolences go to his family and friends. May you rest in peace. Rebecca Krause, January 11, 2016 Bryan was the type of person you could always learn something new from. He was an intelligent and fun-loving person who left an impression on many people at home in Texas and also across the world from what I see here. I am so sorry for your loss. Robert Taylor, January 11, 2016 Bryan, you were a wealth of knowledge with a willingness to share. Thank you. I will miss our FB chats on some of the most random topics ;) Godspeed, Bryan. Until we meet again. Linus Toy, January 11, 2016 I am so incredibly sorry to hear about Bryan. I first met Bryan in high school when one of my windshield wipers flew off, and being the helpful man he was he fixed it for me. It was a simple gesture but it really stuck with me. Although we only stayed in touch sporadically over the years, he was a memorable character that made a lasting impression on so many people. My thoughts are with his family and friends, and I wish them the best. Kaylie Webb Jones, January 11, 2016 When I first met Bryan we were making a deal for car parts I had listed on Craigslist. I remember how we talked like old friends, even though we had just met. Bryan was a outstanding person and the world has truly lost a great one. I hope Ashleigh and Bryan's family can stand strong knowing what a great person and friend he was to everyone. Bryan was truly loved by his friends and his community. Rest in Peace Buddy, we will wrench together again someday. Steve Wozniak, January 10, 2016 Short but memorable - ride in peace. Condolences and strength to those left behind. Swen Hollestelle, January 10, 2016 Bryan was my childhood best friend in elementary and middle school before I moved to Seattle, WA from Plano, TX. Lost touch over the years but talked every once in awhile. He certainly was one of the good people and the world is worse off for him not being in it. I love you, Bryan, and i'll see you again someday. Rest in peace. Josh Pass, January 10, 2016 I worked with Byran for a number of years. He was more this just an "HR Guy". I got to watch him be a life coach for many people, a leader, an understanding, and compassionate man. Whether it was conversation about anything with a motor, funny office gossip, or an intense Ping Pong battle; Bryan was an outstanding individual and brought happiness and help to countless people's day and lives. Joshua L Barnes, January 10, 2016 Brian was my daughters friend, I remember him as being a sweet and respectful young man. My heart is saddened today for his parents, family and friends. Brenda Dietz, January 10, 2016 So sorry to hear this sad news. We have great memories of Bryan from boyscouts. he was a great man. Rest in peace Bryan. Brad and Lisa Johnson, January 10, 2016 Judy, Rick, Marc, Kristi, Cody, Ashleigh: Praying for you all. We will all miss Bryan. We were just talking about you guys right before Christmas, remembering our ride home from Branson to Texas. Such a great memory. Love, Amanda & Kyle Amanda Ogden, January 9, 2016 I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Ashleigh, Ms. Phyllis loves you so much and please know my heart goes out to you and aches for your loss. Love you sweetie Phyllis Frederick Steelman, January 9, 2016 RIP Bryan, from myself and all your fellow members on the Mk1 TT Forum & Community in the UK and all over the world. You will be sadly missed by everyone you ever touched. Just a bright star dimmed way too early x Deena Laycock, January 9, 2016 My condolences to all. Bryan you will be missed by everyone who had the pleasure of meeting you. Joe Ward, January 9, 2016 I grew up in the same neighborhood as the Dunbars and played saxophone in band with Marc. As an impressionable young teenager with an attraction to big trucks, I lusted after Bryan's lifted red Ford. Often times I would ride my bike past his house just to drool over it. One time, Bryan caught me. This was the first time I met Bryan. He entertained me and all the questions I had about his truck. That moment was probably the contributing factor to my first truck and evolving interest in cars and trucks. I continued to follow Bryan's shared interest and admired his talent as a skilled automotive enthusiast. I will remember him for his ingenuity, kindness, and humor. Taylor Tate, January 9, 2016 Bryan was a wonderful person, he always knew how to find humor in any situation and was quick witted enough to keep you rolling. I will always remember the times when we were kids playing Sega Genesis or rollerblading through our neighborhood. But most of all I will remember his glee filled laughter and how contagious it was. David Louis Klotz, January 9, 2016 Having never met in person but, having a shared love of the Mk1 Audi TT his reputation for putting a diesel in a TT crossed oceans made him a legend. Such a loss to the world. Enjoy the Peace dude. Russell Jones , January 9, 2016 I remember when I met Bryan. It was at a car meet (obviously). I saw his Nissan truck and since I had the same truck I was instantly intrigued. I said to my self "I've got to meet the owner of this truck". I started to look over the truck and check out some of his mods when he approached and said "you like the truck?", I said "yes I do, I have the same truck! We introduced our selves and instantly became friends. I am so grateful to have spend countless hours and may a late night with him working on his many car projects. Bryan, you will be missed but not forgotten. Tim Fogle, January 9, 2016
