Obituary of Richard Bunn

RIchard Lewis Bunn, 83, of Blawenburg, New Jersey, passed away at Princeton Medical Center on August 31, 2018 from complications of advanced dementia.

He was born in Winston-Salem, NC and raised in Clinton, NC. He served in the U.S. Air Force as an airman from 1957 to 1959 and earned a degree in Philosophy from Southwestern at Memphis (now Rhodes), studied French at the University of Lausanne, and later earned a Master’s Degree in French from Villanova University. He taught French at Lynchburg College, VA, and The Hun School in Princeton, NJ. He was a man of many trades, working in construction, house painting, and sales — both real estate and insurance — and finished his working career as a traveling sales representative for the CUNA Mutual Group.

His favorite activities were traveling the world, reading The New York Times, tinkering with automobiles (especially Volkswagens) and carpentry projects, and flying private airplanes. In his last years, he resided at Princeton Care Center, whose staff gave him exemplary care.

He is survived by his children with Elaine McDermott Bunn: daughter April and her partner Kevin Barry, Red Bank, NJ; son Austin and his partner Bob Hazen of Ithaca, NY; and son Colin and wife Mary of Chicago, IL and his two grandchildren, Griffin and Elizabeth. He is also survived by his former spouse, Marianne (Ginger) Bunn.
