Bunk left a mark on the hearts of all who were blessed enough to have known him. He instilled his values and love of nature in his whole family. He was a selfless giver and was devoted to his wife, children, and grandchildren. Even in death, he gave the gift of life through tissue and bone donation. We will all miss his twinkling eyes and sense of humor.

Jessica, I know from the many stories you've shared with me over the years how very dear your father was to you and I'm so sorry you've lost him. May your memories give you strength. Life is eternal, love is immortal, death is only a horizon; and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight. You are well loved and in my thoughts each day.
