    I will always remember a kind, sometimes shy, and fun-loving teenager, who along with his brothers taught us cousins how to jump from a rope swing into the Merrimack River. We are blessed with memories of a wonderful man.

    Uncle Arthur,

    Thank you for always having the patience, for just putting up with your nephews. You always took the time to listen to them and answer there millions of questions while you were trying to work! We will always think of you, every time we see a van like yours, (I am sure Vinny will be looking for you and some gum). You are the true meaning of an Uncle, a Grandfather, husband, and friend.

    We will miss you very much,

    All our Love, Bob, Lois, Nick, Joey, and Vinny.

    My father Arthur Bunker was one of a kind he taught me everything I know, growing up he always took us to cape cod every summer took us fishing and always spent time with us later we used to go to constantines where we would spend the summer he always made sure we had fun, as I grew up he taught me all aspects of carpentry he answered my million questions and took the time to show me down to the last detail, later on my dad and I built a house for my family in Salem NH he was there with me every step of the way, he was proud when I got a job in masonry and started working with him on side jobs together he was surprised on how much I had learned and I told him I learned from you because you were always there for me no matter what, I could go on for hours on the kind of person he was there isn’t enough time in this world for me to truly express how important my dad was to me and will always be in my heart forever, I love you dad, until we meet again.
