Eddie M. Dunaway

Mr. Eddie M. Dunaway, 59, of Spanish Fort, AL, passed from this life on Sunday, July 5, 2020 at his residence in Tylertown, MS.

Eddie was born on October 19, 1960 and was the son of Ed and Geraldine Reeves Dunaway. He was a member of City Hope Church in Daphne, AL. Eddie was originally from Brookhaven, MS and graduated from Brookhaven High School in 1978. From there, he attended the University of Southern Mississippi, graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture. He began his own business in 2001, E M Dunaway General Contractors, INC, building it from the ground up. He was an avid outdoorsman. He loved fishing, hunting and just nature itself. He also loved the Ole Miss Rebels football and enjoyed being at the games or watching, and didn’t miss a game. He was happiest when he was with those he loved. He was a man of few words but they carried a lot of thought and self-reflection. His love language was evident in and through his hard work, with the goal of providing not only for himself but others as well. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.

He is preceded in death by his parents.

He is survived by one son, Luke Dunaway and wife, Lindsey of Daphne, AL.; one sister, Debbie Coker and husband, Donnie of Tylertown, MS.; one niece, Gerri Williams and husband, Casey of Pearl, MS.; his sweetheart, Pam Forrest of Spanish Fort, AL; and a large family of nieces, nephews and dear friends.
