We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Littleton Chapel
Bruce P. Bunker of Franconia, NH passed away peacefully from his long battle with heart disease and Parkinson’s disease on August 3rd, 2022, at the of 76. He was the cherished husband of Michele “Elia” Bunker, the loving father of Tristan Bunker and her husband Peter Cecys, Jessica Bunker, Pete Jensen and his wife Laura, Andrew Jensen, Christian Jensen and his wife Hailey, and Maxwell Lee. Bruce was also the devoted brother of Brad Bunker and his wife Loretta, and loved brother-in-law of Tara and Josh Gardner.
Bruce attended the Tilton School and graduated from the University of New Hampshire where he played Division 1 football, something he fondly remembered. A true Northern New Hampshire guy, he loved his community, enjoying the simplicity and beauty of the White Mountains, especially when drove his riding lawn mower, carefully avoiding the Mama Bear and her Babies who roamed his property. An avid skier, he had been a racer in his early years. Later, he became a ski instructor, passionately sharing his love of the sport. Having owned his own business, White Mountain Concrete, for more than 40 years, Bruce liked to think that he left a lasting imprint in the North Country. Together with Michele, Bruce enjoyed antiquing, something they did for over 20 years in their Sugar Hill shop.
Bruce’s life will be celebrated at Sugar Hill Community Church on Saturday, August 13th, at 10:00am. In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution in Bruce’s name to his favorite charity, Saint Jude’s, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.http://www.stjude.org/
