March 10, 2015 Eugene Bunn Jr., 92, went home to heaven with peace and grace March 10, 2015, to join his wife, Anne, who was called home before him. Survived by his daughter, Paula Holder Boyd (Ross); his granddaughter, Pamela Aperans (Jim); his great-grandchildren, Amanda Spence, Megan Spence, Joshua Aperans, Michael Aperans (Heather) and Jessica Moshier (George); and his great-great-grandchildren, Ty Elmore, Bryson Aperans, Mikenzie Aperans and Drake Aperans. He is also survived by his brother, Jimmy Bunn (Dean), and his sisters, Juanita Whittle (Jim) and Virginia Cochran. He was predeceased by his great-grandson, Daniel Aperans; mother, Essie Bunn; father, Eugene Bunn Sr.; his brothers, John, J.W., Dan and Morris; and his sister, Sandra. Eugene was born in Boothton, AL, in 1922. He served in the Army Air Corps during World War II and retired from the Civil Service in 1981. After his retirement, he worked in real estate, on the golf course and anywhere a person or business needed help. He was a happy, devoted husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and great-great-grandfather before his passing. Gene, as he was known to his friends, was always very active in every church he attended, from being a deacon, to helping out in the nursery, to providing maintenance for the church whenever it was needed. Gene knew the Lord, loved children, and would give a stranger the shirt off of his back, just to help out. A service will be held at Crossville Memorial Funeral Home and Crematory, 2653 N. Main St. in Crossville, Saturday, March 14, from 10 a.m. to noon, with burial immediately following at Green Acres Cemetery. If you wish, in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Wounded Warriors Project, Alzheimer’s Association, or the charity of your choice, as Gene would have liked to keep helping those in need. "He leaves us with blessed memories." Crossville Memorial Funeral Home and Crematory, Inc. was in charge of the arrangements.
