My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time. Kevin was a special person and will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

Carolyn Beebe, Savannah, GA

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of the Bunger family. We would see Kevin almost every day walking with his walking stick and we would comment on how dedicated he was with his walking and that we should be as dedicated. So sorry for your loss.

Tom and Sandra Kynerd, Savannah , GA

Archie, Terry, Jerry, Claire, Clarissa and Danny I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time. May God bless.

Sending my deepest sympathy & condolences to the Bunger family with the loss of Kevin. His presence, walking larger than life, will be surely missed. God bless.

Kevin was my arch rival in the ship chandlery world for 18 years. He was a damn good chandler. He kept his customers due to his work ethic and expertise. He was fair and honest. I hated losing business to Harbor Supply but not once in 18 years did we have a cross word with each other even as we battled for an order on a ship at 3 AM. I trusted him to be fair when a ship order hung in the balance and he always was. Godspeed Kevin; you've earned a good rest. No more Jacobs ladders. No more 0 dark 30 ship visits. The only ship that matters now is the one you are on- Bon Voyage.

Neff McIntosh, Savannah , Ga

Kevin must be smiling now to know that he was promoted to the B.C.'71 when all of us really knew him as part of the heart and soul of the class of '72 !!..Janie, Archie....I know you are grieving now but Kevin will be remembered and remembered well.

J.Doyle Crider, Atlanta, GA

I am just so sorry to hear about your Dad....I worked for Southern Marine Supply for many many years and Kevin was always one of my biggest competitors but...a;ways always a very good friend. After I stopped working for southern ship Kevin and I actually went to work together in a partnership with Harbor Marine. We worked together for over 2 years. He was a really good person!!

Joann Jones, Richmond Hill, ga

Condolences to the entire Bunger family. Maddie has talked about her Dad and shared many memories about him with loving stories, good times, and endless love for Kevin. He's going to be missed so much by her and friends from GCSU. He was a very kind, generous, and all round great guy. His legacy will be never ending and he will be in our thoughts forever.

Bruce, Donna, Bo, Drew, Dana, Ashley, Jack, Cumming, GA

My condolences to the Bunger Family on your loss. Please know your loss is shared and that our Savior Jesus Christ has promised at John 5:28 ( to resurret those asleep in death). May fond memories linger in your hearts forever. Please visit www.jw.org

Dear Bunger Family, we send our deepest sympathy and know you all are in the Clemens, Schoudt, families thoughts and Prayers. Love Beverly and Warren.

Warren and Beverly Clemens, Lilburn , Ga

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Kevin was such a special person. We will miss seeing him walking over the bridge at Turners Creek.

Carol & Jimmy Brown, Tybee Island, GA

To the entire Bunger family: I am at a loss for words. Kevin was larger than life and I can't comprehend the loss. I will miss him. He was a special man.

Kathy Sharpe, Savannah,

My condolences to the family. May you find comfort in the scripture at Revelation 21:4 and the website jw. org.

Niecy, Savannah, GA

I am sorry for your loss. Death is painful to all of us. However God's word the Bible always offers encouragement. A scripture I find comforting is Isaiah 25:8. There Jehovah promises to do away with death and all things that bring us pain. That will be very satisfying! I hope this thought has been comforting to you. May positive thoughts fill you hearts and minds as you endure this difficult time.

Ralph Kevin Bunger, Sr., 64, died Monday, October 2, 2017. He was born September 27, 1953 in Hampton, SC to the late Arthur and Emeline Bunger. Kevin was a proud 1971 graduate of Benedictine Military School and a member of St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church. He was the owner of local business, Harbor Marine Supply, a chandlery for the Port of Savannah. Kevin was well known by many as the “Bridge Walker”, where he could be seen walking the Spence Grayson Bridge every day with his walking stick, collecting “bridge treasures” and waving to all who honked. To all who knew and loved him, he was the embodiment of his favorite A. Lord Tennyson quote, “My strength is as the strength of ten, because my heart is pure.” He was a devoted father, brother, and friend to many and will always be remembered as a larger than life character, a man who filled every room with laughter, fun and rubber snakes.

He is survived by his five children, Maureen Brown, Caitlin Bunger, Madeline Bunger, Ralph K. Bunger, Jr., and Griffith Bunger. Also surviving are three brothers, Archie Bunger (Janie), Jerry Bunger (Cindy), and Danny Bunger (Susan), also three sisters, Terrie Bunger, Claire Gunn (Peter), and Clarissa McElveen (Jim), and also two grandchildren, Elizabeth and Timothy Brown, and many nieces, nephews, and friends.

Visitation will be from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., with a Rosary Service at 5:30 p.m., Thursday, October 5, 2017 at St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church. Mass of Christian Burial will be 11:00 a.m., Friday, October 6, 2017 at St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church. Burial will be in the Greenwich section of Bonaventure Cemetery. Remembrances may be made to Benedictine Military School or St. Vincent’s Academy.
