James “Pat” Bunyard

Pat Bunyard was born July 12, 1918 in Harney County, Oregon to James G. and Lora Bunyard.

Pat died at home Thursday, March 31, 2016. He was preceded in death by his wife Audre Bunyard in November, 1994. He is survived by his son Lyle Bunyard and his daughter Patricia Bunyard, granddaughter Shannon Larson and great granddaughter Emma.

Pat was a soft spoken, quiet man who was much loved by all of his family and numerous friends. He owned and worked a farm in the Brogan area for many years. After “retiring” he took up golf, became an avid golfer and in the mid-eighties became the greens keeper at Kinzua Hills Golf Course in Central Oregon. After retiring from the golf course, Pat spent his final years in Portland with his family.

A graveside memorial service will be held at the Fossil Cemetery, Fossil, Oregon on April 23, 2016 at 12 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Kinzua Hills Golf Course for the new irrigation system.
