Bob was of Baptist faith.

He was a veteran of the Vietnam War, having served two tours of service in country.

III, Bunten; two sisters, Reba Price and Ruby Lucas; grandchildren, Chelsy Riddle, Emily Purner, Ashely Tagudin and William G. Bunten, IV; two great grandchildren; several nieces and nephews.
