Born August 1, 1932 in rural Glasford to Peter and Edith (Keel) Bunger, he married Carole (Rudd) Bunger June 28, 1958 in Kingston Mines. She survives.

Also surviving are daughter, Beth Rafool of Pekin; two grandchildren, Taylor (Lindsey) Rafool of East Peoria and Jensen (Colton Mason) Rafool of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina; one great-grandchild, Lincoln James Rafool that he called “little pal”; two sisters-in-law, Patsy Bunger and Jerrie Rudd and many nieces and nephews.

After over 40 years at the Keystone Steel & Wire Co., John retired from the netting department in December of 1990.

Uncle Johnny was one of the sweetest people I've ever known. Always welcoming, always happy to see us and couldn't do enough for us. He will be missed by his beautiful family and all of us that knew him. His tribute video is a perfect representation of his life, most importantly how much he loved his family.

Have many good fun and happy memories with Johnny Bunger as we were in the same High School class graduating in 1950 from Timber Township High School in Glasford, Illiniois. We had a very small class … graduating 25 students… so we all knew each other quite well. Giving my condolences to Carole and family.
