I'm so sorry for your loss. I thought a lot of Mr. Bunch. He was so kind. I worked at Amelia Island Mosquito Control and stopped and talked to him many times while he was working in his beautiful garden of roses. He will be greatly missed.
There are so many fond memories of Mr. Bunch through the years working with him. He will be missed by so many with in the community.

My childhood memories of getting Christmas trees from Mr. Bunch are some of my favorite stories to tell my children and grandchildren. Mr. Bunch was such a good man. I always enjoyed his letters to the editor as well! Eloquent truth for sure!! Old Fernandina has lost yet another icon. God bless you all
A good man. He was a pleasure to work with at Rayonier.
