Bunken served his country with pride in the US Army and National Guard for six years. He enjoyed sports and coached his children's little league baseball and softball teams. Bunken led a simple life in the country with his horses and the dogs he raised. He loved to fish and hunt, and did so when he could with his sons and his little brother.
