August 20, 1930 – February 3, 2020
Bobby Lee Gunn passed away peacefully in Shreveport, LA on Monday, February 3, 2020. He was born to James A. Gunn and Letha May Gunn on August 20, 1930 in Mt. Pleasant, TX. He is survived by his beloved wife of 69 years Patsy Price Gunn; son, Bobby Preston Gunn of Houston, TX; daughter, Anna Gunn Devor and family of the Houston, TX area; brothers, Freddie Gunn and wife Joan of Oklahoma, Dean Gunn and wife Joyce of Texas; sister, Lois Smith of Oklahoma; brother-in-law, Jack Price and wife Sharon of Savannah, TX; and many nieces and nephews. Bob was preceded in death by his parents; three brothers, Eugene Gunn, George A. Gunn, and James Gunn; and sister, Oleta Metz. Bob was a loving husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend. He was devoted to his Lord, his family and his country. He retired from active duty in the U.S. Air Force as Chief Master Sergeant after serving 22 years followed by 16 years in civil service. In his field of Aircraft and Safety Management, he received many honors and awards including the Bronze Star. Through his years in service, he and his family always found a church in which to serve and worship.
