Keith J. Bunting, 83, of Traverse City, went to be with his Lord and Savior on March 30, 2015.  

Keith was born Dec. 9, 1931, in Kalamazoo, to the late Harold J. and Elizabeth (Allen) Bunting.  He met the love of his life, Mary Ann Henshaw, while working at JC Penney.  Keith and Mary were married on June 21, 1957, in Kalamazoo.  Together they lovingly raised three wonderful daughters in Midland, and later became in-laws to three incredible sons.  

Beginning in 1951, Keith honorably served his country in the U.S. Coast Guard during the Korean War.  After three years of service he continued his education at Western Michigan University earning his BBA degree with graduate studies at Emory University.  Keith worked for The Dow Chemical Co. and retired after 25 years.  His last position with Dow was as manager of Government and Public Affairs.  

In 1993, Keith and Mary moved to Traverse City, where he was a devoted member of the Presbyterian Church.  He embraced his faith and the power of positive thinking, the philosophy he lived by.  

Hunting, fishing, and boating were among his favorite hobbies.  Keith and Mary loved to jump in the car and explore the area, marveling at the change of seasons.  A daily pontoon boat ride around the lake with Mary by his side was a favorite way to spend a summer day.  Keith was an avid football fan.  There was nothing better than watching a Sunday afternoon Lions game with him; his love and enthusiasm for the game were contagious.  

Most importantly, Keith loved and cherished his family.  He will forever remain in their hearts.  

Surviving Keith is his loving wife, Mary of 57 years; daughters, Susan (Jeffrey) Newland of Traverse City, Lisa (Edgar) Anders of Mount Dora, Fla., Lori (Patrick) Leddy of Nashville, Tenn.; grandchildren, Alexandra and Allison Anders, Michael Leddy, John and James Newland; his loving sister, Caroline "Kay" Decker; sister-in-law, Heloise Bunting; and many cherished nieces, nephews, and dear friends.  Keith was preceded in death by his parents and siblings, Betty French, Harold "Allen" Bunting, and Mary Lou Mann.  

Friends and family may gather for a time of visitation on Saturday, April 11, 2015, from 10-11 a.m., at the Presbyterian Church, 701 Westminster Rd., Traverse City, Mich. 49686.  A memorial service will begin at 11 a.m.  There will be a luncheon at the church immediately following the memorial service.  

Keith's family sincerely thanks Hospice of Michigan and the caring staff at Cherry Hill Haven Lodge, especially Nancy Chester, and asks that memorial contributions be directed to the Presbyterian Church or the Alzheimer's Association (Research), Michigan Great Lakes Chapter, 564 S. Main St., Suite 200, Ann Arbor, MI 48104.
