CWO Don Bungay

LCol (Ret'd) Wayne Marr has just informed me that CWO (Ret'd) Don Bungay of Calgary passed away Friday night from cancer. His wife Shirley is in the process of organizing his funeral and details will be known late Sunday. Anyone wishing to attend his funeral can contact LCol Marr at (780) 986-2850 Sunday evening and he can provide the date/time/location.

Don was a Junior NCO in the AB REGT in Edmonton 68-71, then he served with 3 Mech CDO 71-74 then back to Edmonton for three years and subsequently remustered to Dental and retired in 1996 as a CWO.

Don made a comment from the ranks that was overheard by the RSM, the infamous Dickie Buxton. Buxton walked up to Don and asked him very politely, "what's your f@#$ing name, trooper"? Don replied "Bungay Sir". Buxton replied "Bungay, more like f@#$ing fungi, take his name Sergeant Major".
Don was a character when I knew him from 1968 to 1971 and he was especially "interesting" when he was running with Brian Fulton. My condolences to his family.
