GRANVILLE RICHARD BUNCH July 13, 1918-August 19, 2007 Granville Richard (George) Bunch, 89, born July 13, 1918, in Key West, FL, was the eldest son of Eugene Brantley and Margaret Ann Jerguson Bunch. Mr. Bunch, a longtime resident of Ft. Lauderdale, FL, died August 19, in Peachtree City, GA. He was married for 48 years to Jessie Marie Winford, who died in 1995. He is survived by two daughters, Lynn Bunch Donham (Decatur, GA), and Gwen Bunch Garrison (Peachtree City, GA), and a large extended family of nieces, nephews, and grandchildren. Raised at Thornwell Orphanage in Clinton, SC., Mr. Bunch graduated in the first senior class of College Park High School. He volunteered for the Air Force in 1940, serving in England, North Africa and Italy. An automobile mechanic by trade, he served as an elder in Bethany Presbyterian, Calvary Presbyterian and Rio Vista Community churches throughout his life. A gentle and compassionate man, a loyal friend, he sought to serve those in need and live in the spirit and example of Jesus. His life was one of hard work, honesty, dignity and grace, finding joy in nature, friendships and devotion to church and family. A celebration and memorial service was held at 4 p.m., Saturday, August 25, at Oakhurst Baptist Church in Decatur, GA, followed by a covered dish dinner.
