Our beloved Danial "Dan" Leroy Bunkers was taken from everyone who loved and knew him on Sept. 9, 2007.
The Guest Book is expired.
Dan was born March 11, 1982, in Provo, Utah, to Edwin Lee Bunkers and Lucinda (Moore) Bunkers. As a child, Dan and his family moved around quite a bit. Starting in Utah they moved to New Mexico, back to Utah, and finally to Montana with his mother and brother when he was 15.
In 2001 Dan met his wife, Renee Bergquist, and they were married in May 2006. Together they had two beautiful boys, Tyler Edwin, 3, and Jordan "JoJo" Avery (deceased). Dan was love crazy over his boys. If you found one of them you knew just where the other was. Dan spent every moment he could with his boys.
Dan worked around the Gallatin Valley as a mechanic and tire tech. He loved the outdoors and would remain there forever if he had something with a motor. He was the person who stopped beside you on the road as a stranger and helped you with whatever. He would never hesitate to lend a hand to family or friend either.
Everything Dan did in his life he did with a smile. Not just any smile, but one that would shine so bright it would melt your heart. Dan was a wonderful husband, the world's best dad, and the loving spice of life to his mother and brother.
Dan is preceded in death by his son, JoJo; father, Edwin; sister, Jana; and his maternal grandparents.
Survivors include his loving wife, Renee and wonderful son, Tyler; loving mother, Lucinda "Cindy" of Three Forks; sister, Michelle (Young Su) Cabos of Alamogordo, N.M.; sister, Nicole (Dave) Peay of Springville, Utah; loving brother, Scott (Kristy) Bunkers of Three Forks; and grandparents, Lee and Ethal Bunkers of Lehi, Utah.; also many, many friends and relatives. You will be missed by all! We love you, Dan.
A memorial service will be held at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9, at First Baptist Church. Interment of the urn will follow in Sunset Hills Cemetery.
