Douglas Bunker

Douglas Bunker was born in Renton, Washington on July 19th, 1956; he passed away on December 23rd, 2009 in his home surrounded by family.   He was 53 year old when he lost his battle with cancer.

Doug grew up with 5 brothers and 2 sisters in a small 3 bedroom house in Renton and quickly learned the meaning of a close family.
Although he lived a simple life, he enjoyed it to the fullest and never let life’s challenges get in his way.   He loved bike riding, long walks, fishing and riding ATVs on the back roads at the lake.

Doug’s idea of a good day was to get up at 4:30 am, drink two pots of coffee with his brother and best friend, Tony,  grab his bike and hit the trails for 5-6 hours, come back home to have lunch, take a 6 mile walk in the afternoon, eat his crock-pot dinner and hit the sack by 7:00 pm.
He loved his job working in the warehouse at KWL in Kent, where he made some good friends, put in a hard day’s work and felt really good at the end of the day.  Thanks to all of you at KWL for making Doug feel so needed and loved, and for your commitment to him during this last year and a half.  You’ll never know how much it meant to Doug.
Doug was loved by many, but the love of his life and his best friend forever was Mona.  Thanks Mona for your dedicated friendship.  You and your family were everything to Doug that the rest of us weren’t able to be.  He treasured your friendship deeply.
Doug is survived by 4 brothers (Ken, Steve, Curt and Tony Bunker) and two sisters (Mary LeMay & Jan Means).
We will miss Doug dearly but he will be forever in our hearts.

Memorial services will be held on Friday, January 8th, 2010 at 2:00 pm at Valley View Christian Church 25605 124th Ave SE • Kent, Wa.

    Anyone who ever met Doug was better for the experience. His undaunted spirit and his wry wit always left me with a smile. His KWL family will miss him but our spirits are forever lifted by Doug’s presence in our lives.

    I am Mona’s sister and I agree that Mona truly was the love of Doug’s life. In all the years that I knew him, he never once forgot her birthday, even though he could barely walk around, towards the end of his life. He was much like a member of our family and will be missed by us all. His quick wit and kind ways will always be a treasure in my mind.
