Ronald F. “Stan” Bunker, 57, Green Bay, passed away Monday, June 5, 2017, at Froedtert Hospital after a short illness surrounded by his loving family.  He was born March 26, 1960, to Harold and Gloria (Van Hemelryk) Bunker. Stan graduated from Green Bay East High School.  On November 7, 1986, he married Lucy Warpinski, a union of true love lasting over 30 years.  The two were blessed with two daughters, Kaitlyn and Kelly, his pride and joy. 

Stan was a longtime employee of the City of Green Bay Department of Public Works.  He was an avid sports fan, cheering for the Packers, Brewers and Badgers.  On summer Saturday nights, he could be found sitting in the bleachers at Shawano Speedway watching the stock car races.  He enjoyed fishing “up north”, especially in the company of his brothers.  Stan liked the simple things in life, a classic John Wayne Western, the movie Shane, the theme song from Dallas, old time country music, trips to Dollywood, the devotion of a golden retriever, and serving as grill master for the backyard cookout.    

He is survived by his wife, Lucy, Green Bay; two daughters, Kaitlyn of Seattle, WA;  and Kelly of Green Bay; his current canine son, Parker; brothers and sisters, William Bunker, Richard (fiancée, Sally) Bunker, Mary (Todd Spink) Bunker, Terry (Nicole) Bunker; a brother-in-law, Dave Miller; Lucy’s family, Kathleen (Michael Knoedler) Slatky Warpinski, Mark (Sue) Warpinski, Joe (Sally) Warpinski,  Jim (Diane) Warpinski, John (significant other Cassandra) Warpinski, Margaret (David) De Bruine, Jane Ronsman, Nancy (Chuck) Schultz, Amy (Alan Bitting) Warpinski, Lora (Dick) Anderson, Luke (Susan) Warpinski, Cecilia (Paul) Stuopis, Anastasia (Charles) Gille, Alvin Everett; his step-mother-in-law, Mary Ann Warpinski; a special family friend, Sue Tease Fleury; many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded by his parents, Harold and Gloria Bunker; his mother-in-law, Marian Warpinski; his father-in-law, Dr. Marion Warpinski; a sister, Catherine Miller; a brother-in-law, Thomas Ronsman; two sisters-in-law, Mary Everett and Susan Warpinski.
