The husband of Lubbock’s City manager has died after a lengthy illness.

Bill Dumbauld, husband of City Manager Lee Ann Dumbauld, passed away Wednesday afternoon.

He spent much of his career in the insurance industry. Dumbauld also played college football for the West Virginia Mountaineers, and was drafted in 1960 to play tackle for the Cleveland Browns.

He was injured in his first year with the Browns and was unable to continue playing.
