Edward Carlyle Bunker Family

Contributor: canadianandfrench Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Written by a daughter, Velyle B. Taylor (around 1983) Source: File located on Edward Bunker's computer and converted to text by Mathew Bunker on April 27, 2013 My father, Edward Carlyle Bunker, was born January 5, 1905 in Colonia Morelos, Sonora, Mexico. He was the fourth child and third son of George Smith and Isabelle McArthur Bunker. His grandparents were Edward and Emily Abbott Bunker. His family was part of a group of Latter-day Saint colonists living in Mexico at that time. When he was five years old, there was much political unrest and danger for those living in Mexico, so the family returned to Utah. They lived for a time in Sutherland, near Delta, and then made a permanent home in what is now Orem, so that their children could have the educational advantages offered by B.Y.U. Carlyle, his father and brother, Antoine, established a feed and grain business on their farm on Orem which grew through the years to be one of the most modern feed manufacturing plants in Utah County. This business became Carlyle's lifetime vocation and he always endeavored to provide his customers with the very best quality of animal feed at the most reasonable price. He and his wife, Velda Rachel Carson, had seven children; Velyle, Paul Carson, Carla, Maria, Kenyon Carson, Edward Carson and Elise. His family was a great source of pride and satisfaction to him. All of the children gained valuable work experience at the feed mill working with their father. Carlyle loved these things most of all - his family, his church and his fellowmen. His devotion to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was demonstrated in many years of willing service. He served two Spanish speaking missions, one to New Mexico before his marriage and the other to Mexico when I was six years old. He served for a time in the Bishopric of the Vineyard ward, then eleven years as a member of the Orem Stake High Council, eleven years in the Orem Stake Presidency and eleven years as Stake President of the Orem West Stake. My father enjoyed learning new things and applying that knowledge in practical ways. Even close to the end of his life when he was confined to a wheelchair, he was attending classes at B.Y.U. Throughout his life, he would rise early and study the scriptures, usually in Spanish, before attending to his daily work. He consistently set goals for himself and then organized his daily time by making lists of things to be done. Carlyle passed away on October 51, 1972. His “sweetheart”, Velda preceded him in death by just six weeks and his son, Paul, died just two days before his father. Our family experienced much grief in a short period of time that fall. The descendants of Carlyle and Velda number at present; six living children, 32 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Velyle married David Paul Taylor. We reside in American Fork, Utah where I am teaching elementary school. Paul is recently retired from Geneva Steel. We have five children. Our son, Bryan, married Susan Page. He is a First Lieutenant in the U.S. Army presently stationed at Fort Knox, Kentucky. Pamela, a daughter, lives in Provo and teaches school. Natalie married David Noel Hess. They reside in Marina, California where Dave is completing a graduate degree in business. They have a daughter, Jennifer. Two other daughters, Rebecca and Paulette are still living at home. Paul's wife, Lola, has remarried and is also living in American Fork and teaching school. Their son, Dirk is married to Amy Larsen and has a daughter, Nicole. They live in Sigurd, Utah where Dirk is an electrician in the coal mines. Gayle teaches school and is married to Dwayne ware. They are expecting their first child this fall. Shareen is married to Scott Holt, who farms with his father in Salina, Utah. They have two children, Joshua and Desirae. Monica lives in Provo and works at B.Y.U. Darren, Donavan and David live at home. Two more sons, Troy_and Cody have beed added to their family making nine children in all. Carla is also a school teacher. She and her husband, Gene Adams, have two children; Sean and Jana Sue. They live in Huntington, Utah where Gene is a miner. Maria and her husband, Dean Lloyd currently live in Pocatello, Idaho. Dean manages a lumber business there. They have four adopted children; Kimberly, Derek, Marcus and a new little girl, Aimee Lynn. Kenyon has stayed in Orem where he farms and operates a large dairy. He and his wife, Joy Sturman, have five children: Michelle, Shane, Brandon, Casey and Devin. Edward is our world traveler. He and his family returned about a year ago from living in Papua, New Guinea. They now make their home in Mesa, Arizona. Edward manages the computerized accounting for a large wholesale food business. His wife, Shauna Buchanan, teaches school. They have two sons, Mathew and Marcus. Elise and her husband, Stephen James reside in Scipio, Utah. Stephen is employed in the coal mines. They have nine children: Rachel, Jeremy, Jennifer, Gary Michael, Jessica, Emily, Nathan, Sarah Jane, and Susan Elise. I am sure I speak for all of Carlyle's descendants when I say that we are very proud of our Bunker heritage and accept the responsibility of continuing to live the kind of lives that will be pleasing to our forebearers.

Life timeline of Paul Carson Bunker

Paul Carson Bunker was born on 16 Dec 1935
Paul Carson Bunker was 6 years old when World War II: The Imperial Japanese Navy made a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, intending to neutralize the United States Pacific Fleet from influencing the war Japan was planning to wage in Southeast Asia. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
Paul Carson Bunker was 17 years old when Jonas Salk announced the successful test of his polio vaccine on a small group of adults and children (vaccination pictured). Jonas Edward Salk was an American medical researcher and virologist. He discovered and developed one of the first successful polio vaccines. Born in New York City, he attended New York University School of Medicine, later choosing to do medical research instead of becoming a practicing physician. In 1939, after earning his medical degree, Salk began an internship as a physician scientist at Mount Sinai Hospital. Two years later he was granted a fellowship at the University of Michigan, where he would study flu viruses with his mentor Thomas Francis, Jr.
Paul Carson Bunker was 28 years old when The Beatles make their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, performing before a "record-busting" audience of 73 million viewers across the USA. The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential music band in history. Rooted in skiffle, beat and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented with several musical styles, ranging from pop ballads and Indian music to psychedelia and hard rock, often incorporating classical elements and unconventional recording techniques in innovative ways. In 1963, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania"; as the group's music grew in sophistication, led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartney, the band were integral to pop music's evolution into an art form and to the development of the counterculture of the 1960s.
Paul Carson Bunker died on 28 Oct 1972 at the age of 36
