Dan and I were saddened to hear about Bobby. He was a popular member of the CHS Class of 1969 and will be fondly remembered by classmates at our 50th Reunion in May. We extend sincerest sympathy to his family and all who loved him.

My sincere condolences to all the Bunce family in the loss of such a caring man. I first met Bobby in grade school, and as I reminded him him on our 50th High School Reunion website, he was instrumental in getting me on his football team. He went on to be a solid, well admired player throughout his years.
He was a gentle giant with a big heart and I will miss not catching up with him at the reunion. God’s Peace to all that knew and loved him.

I truly regret hearing this sad news. Bobby was great guy. I knew him since kindergarten and lived one street over from his family. We were Rigdon Road Rockets, Richards Junior High School Warriors and Columbus High School Blue Devils all those years. We collided on the football fields many times. He was solid as a rock and always a happy positive guy. My condolences to his wife, children and grandchildren. I know you will miss him.
Kind Regards,
