Friends and Schoolmates,
Rather belatedly, I have more sad news to report today. Bunky Bull, Class of June 1948, passed away at his home on St. Simons Island, Georgia on Thursday, March 16, 2017 at the age of 85.
From Tim Parsons ('73) of VA - 03/20/17:
The NNHS Class of 1948 is getting larger in heaven. Rest in Peace, Bunky Bull.
Thank you so much, Tim. I've no idea how I could have missed your posting of this back in March. Bunky had been a subscriber of mine for many years. My sincerest condolences are extended to his family and friends.
From The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - 03/18/17:
ST. SIMONS ISLAND, GA -
Charles "Bunky" Bull passed away on Thursday, the 16th of March 2017, at
home on St. Simons Island, GA at the age of 85.
Bunky was born on the 29th of April 1931, in Newport News, VA to Virginia and Reese Bull. He attended the University of Tennessee before serving in the United States Army for eight years. He lived most of his life in Atlanta before moving to the area in 1991.
Bunky was a most loving husband and father who was passionate about family, U.S. history, boating and animals. He never met a stranger in his life. Values, morals and honesty were his lifeblood and he taught his family these qualities well. He was a natural salesman, quick-witted, and tried to forgive you if you voted for Clinton…either one of them.
In addition to his parents he is preceded in death by his son, Michael
Bunky is survived by his wife of thirty-five years, Belitje Bancker Bull of St. Simons Island, GA; daughter, Lisa Bull Killingsworth and husband Christopher of Chattanooga, TN; granddaughter, Whitney Barnhart of Cumming, GA; grandson, Allen Barnhart (Melissa) of Marietta, GA; and one great-grandson, Preston Scott Lynn of Cumming, GA.
Funeral services will be conducted at eleven o'clock on Tuesday, the 21st day of March 2017, in the Chapel of Christ Church Frederica with Father Tom Purdy officiating.
In lieu of customary remembrances, the family wishes memorial contributions to be directed to the Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia, 4627 US17, Brunswick, GA 31525.
Arrangements are entrusted to Edo Miller and Sons Funeral Home.

Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise
Words by Walter C. Smith, 1876
Music (St. Denio) by John Roberts, 1839
Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes,
Most blessèd, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
Almighty, victorious, Thy great Name we praise.
Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,
Nor wanting, nor wasting, Thou rulest in might;
Thy justice, like mountains, high soaring above
Thy clouds, which are fountains of goodness and love.
To all, life Thou givest, to both great and small;
In all life Thou livest, the true life of all;
We blossom and flourish as leaves on the tree,
And wither and perish—but naught changeth Thee.
Great Father of glory, pure Father of light,
Thine angels adore Thee, all veiling their sight;
But of all Thy rich graces this grace, Lord, impart
Take the veil from our faces, the vile from our heart.
All laud we would render; O help us to see
’Tis only the splendor of light hideth Thee,
And so let Thy glory, Almighty, impart,
Through Christ in His story, Thy Christ to the heart.
