Obituary

Michael Bunch, 69, of Fairmount, died Tuesday, April 13, 2021 at Ascension St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis.

Michael was born on November 22, 1951 in Marion, Indiana, son of the late Meredith Eugene and Mable Rosella (Atkinson) Bunch. He graduated from Mississinewa High School in 1969 and from Marion College in 1976 with a degree in Art Education. He won an award in college for his interpretation painting of the Last Supper. Michael married Raeann Etchison on April 23, 1977. Michael was a hard worker. He was a fleet manager at Hertz Rental Car and most recently stocked shelves for Walmart. His grandchildren believed if anything was broken grandpa could fix it. Michael was a large man in stature but it didn't compare to the size of his heart. Rebuilding cars was one of his many interests which helped him maintain his 1950 Chevy affectionately known as "Oscar". He enjoyed golf and made custom golf clubs. Bowling was another interest, the perfect 300 game eluded him at 297. He also enjoyed genealogy, reading, collecting tea pots and baseball hats.

Michael is survived by his wife of almost 44 years; Raeann, children, Nathan (Nicole) Bunch, Antioch, TN, Alicia (Ian) Querry, Fairmount; four grandchildren, Emma Bunch, Lucas, Benjamin, and Zoe Querry.

Michael was preceded in death by his parents, and his sister, Pam Thompson
