Dale Bundy Obituary
Bundy, Dale Patrick "Jug'

Dale Patrick "Jug" Bundy, 73, of Peshtigo/Menominee passed to his eternal reward at St. Mary's Hospital in Green Bay on April 29, 2013.

Dale was born on Aug. 24, 1939, at home in Peshtigo, while the Dr. was in the outhouse and the mid-wife delivered him. He was number six of seven children of Walter and Viola (Deschaine) Bundy. He attended Peshtigo Schools earning his major "P" letter as a freshman in football. He loved to hunt and fish as a youth, spending much time in the woods. Jug worked at Thompson Boat and Hartwig's Gas Station and then at Badger Paper Mills, where he worked for 38 years. He operated the crane making all those neat log piles. On June 24, 1967, Dale was united in marriage with Carol Dewane at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Menominee, Mich. They celebrated 45 years of marriage last year, in the hospital as Dale was ill. Dale and Carol were blessed with their daughter, Anastasia, on April 8, 1968. The Bundy's started trap shooting in 1972, at the Oconto Gun Club. The couple traveled the U.S. for 30 years shooting trap, shopping and making new friends.

Dale won many trophies throughout his shooting career in Wisconsin, Michigan, Iowa, Texas, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Minnesota, and South Dakota, his favorite being a doubles trophy from nationals and his high average years in both the Peshtigo and Oconto Gun Clubs. His favorite trophy he didn't win was the Peshtigo Gun Club yearly trophy. He had 49/50, guess who won with a 50/50 hint C.B. He served as president at the Oconto Gun Club, when they built the club house. Dale was very proud that on Dec. 7, 1973, he became a member of the Catholic Church being baptized, confirmed and receive First Communion at St. Mary Church in Peshtigo.
