Robert Ray Bunker Sr.

August 9, 1922October 22, 2018

Lakeland- Dr. Robert Ray Bunker, Sr., age 96, went to heaven Monday, October 22, 2018. He was born August 9, 1922 in Ladysmith, WI.

How does one describe his father humbly when that man gave so much to so many. Tough, yes, mentally and physical (fought for his ship in the Navy). Yet, a Christ-like heart, a tribute to his Savior. A bond servant for his Lord. A Pastor for over 60 years. I know of no one who loved his Savior, his family and everyone he met as him. He would have a few words for me, probably behind the shed, if I did not say something about salvation. Heaven or Hell? Confession as a sinner, repentance as a result of belief, an heir as a believer in Christ Jesus, eternal life by the grace of God.

On Monday God called my dad to his new home in heaven. In the twinkling of an eye, he left his earthly body and was through the Pearly Gates. Our niece said, ”he has received his wings.” I don’t know about that, but, he is living with all his friends in heaven, Christians. Heaven or Hell? The decision is yours.

Memorial Services are Saturday, October 27, 2018 at 11:00 am at the Gapway Baptist Church, 1705 N. Combee Road, Lakeland, FL
