Kevin ‘Pelican’ Dunne

Kevin “Pelican” Dunne, 69, died peacefully on Friday, Feb. 19, 2021, at The Gardens at Easton. He was born on Long Island, N.Y., the youngest son of Michael and Martha (Hanna) Dunne.

Surviving are his children, Michael Dunne and Mahgayn Schlosser; a sister, Grace Doxsee; a sister-in-law, Sylvia Bartley; three grandchildren: Dylan, Bryce and Roberto Jr.; and many cherished nieces, nephews and godchildren.

He was preceded in death by his beloved wives, Arbutus and Brenda; his brother, Michael; and many, many cherished brothers of the road.

“Peli” was many things to many people: a veteran of the U.S. Army, an outlaw, a shameless flirt, a biker, a charmer of nurses, a great dancer, a jailhouse lawyer, an animal lover, a hustler, a friend, a father and much more. When asked for his occupation, he often answered with two words: “Road Dog.” One thing that he wasn’t was a bore. He was as scrappy as he was sweet, and was always the life of the party in any room he occupied. No matter if you loved him or hated him, he wasn’t to be ignored. He was a man who lived on his own terms.
