I think we all have a million funny stories to tell of Uncle Bunker! They are all my favorite but the one that tops all.... He mowed my parents yard, which isnt small, so its a riding mower... He gets done after an hour or so..... He never engaged the blades!! At least we know which side of the family he gets it from! Or... How he got the nickname Bunker!! I will always expect to see him for the Massillon/ McKinley game.... What a blessing and a privilege it was for him to be my Uncle!
