Daniel Loyd Bunting Ph.D.

An educator, traveler and historian, Dan was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Born in Indiana on September 12, 1931, Dan passed away on January 20, 2012 in Cloverdale, California.

He grew up in a military family which fortunately enabled him to live in many parts of the world. He received his Bachelor's Degree in history from University of Oregon (a proud duck), his Master's Degree from San Francisco State and his Ph.D. in Philosophy. He served in the Army during the Korean War and was very proud of his military service. As a historian, his favorite topic of conversation was his personal experience with the Berlin Airlift of 1948-49. Dan assisted with this military operation while his father was stationed in Germany as the Commander in Charge.

His love of travel took him and his wife Ann, all over the world. Included in his many accomplishments, Dan was most proud of conquering Mt. Whitney and his numerous climbs to the top of Half Dome in Yosemite National Park. An educator his whole adult life, Dan served on numerous school boards and retired as Superintendant of Sebastopol schools. He was active in Rotary, Druids and had served as Lay Reader at his church.

Dan is survived by his beloved wife of 22 years, Ann, and his four daughters, one step daughter, one step son, 17 grandchildren and four great grandchildren. He was pre-deceased by his first wife Audrey, whom he was married to for 35 years.

Dan's story telling will be greatly missed by all, but never forgotten. The family would like to thank the staff at Clearwater Lodge for their love, support and kindness in caring for Dan in his final months.
