Resident of Cupertino.
Raymond Charles Bunt born with a big bang on July 4, 1923, joined his beloved wife of 64 years, Anna Barbara Bunt and son, James Richard Bunt on Jan. 4, 2013, in the eternal paradise where we will one day be together again.
He leaves a treasure of loved ones including his children; Ann (Mike) Bunt Carter, Raymond Bunt, Jr. and Bobby (Janine) Bunt; grandchildren; Kendra, Christy, Konnie, Bill, Layna, Brian, Jamie, and Alison and 8 great-grandchildren.
In addition, many family friends who will continue to cherish this man and his legacy. In his youth he worked as a Captain for the Cleveland Lifeguards in charge of 40 guards while attending and graduating from Case Metallurgical College as a tool and die pattern maker.
In 1942, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served in both the Atlantic and Pacific fleet, on a submarine, as a Chief Torpedo man and Master Diver on the USS Sailfish. During his service he received a Letter of Commendation for rescuing seven downed airmen trapped in their planes beneath the ocean's surface and received a Presidential Unit Citation for his involvement in the sinking of the largest Japanese aircraft carrier.
Ray met the love of his life, Ann, and decided to give up the Navy. They married in 1946, and settled in Connecticut, beginning his career in sales and starting their family.
While advancing his career with John Hancock Life Insurance Co., he took his family to Massachusetts, Arizona and finally settled in Los Altos in 1961.
Here he became very involved in community service projects, including dedicating many years to his children's high school activities, which then lead him to his involvement in many political campaigns and his appointment as a California Senior Senator.
Family and friends meant everything to Ray. Known for his love of celebrating holidays and special occasions, his door was always open and everyone was always welcome. It simply was "THE PLACE TO BE"!
He was a mentor to many and all would agree he was "DAD" to everyone. Though he will be missed by all who knew him, we will carry on the lessons we have learned from him; the importance of love, family and acceptance of others; all of the things that are his legacy. Friends were invited to attend services beginning with a visitation on Jan. 11; a vigil service was also held followed by a funeral mass on Jan. 12.
