Bob Bunger passed away on Monday, December 15, 2014.
With deep regret, Bob leaves behind the joys of his life – wife, Marsha (Jacobsen); son, James; and daughter, Annie. He is immeasurably proud of what wonderful people his children have become. James is a graduate of the College of St. Scholastica and launching a successful business career, while Annie is a freshman at Hamline University with a world of adventure ahead for her. Bob is forever grateful for the love and support of Marsha over their 26-plus years of marriage.
Bob was born on March 26, 1960 to Rich and Bette (Odegard) Bunger in Princeton, MN. He graduated from Princeton High School in 1978 and went on to earn a bachelors degree from Macalester College and an MBA from the University of St. Thomas. He is a member of the Milaca United Methodist Church.
His professional career included time with Bob Bunger’s Better Bunnies, political staff positions, the University of Minnesota Foundation, First National Bank of Milaca, Princeton Bank, independent consulting, and, finally, co-founder and principal of HBH Consultants for the past 17 years. He wishes to thank his past and present colleagues with HBH, including Dayton D. Hultgren, Dianne T. McCarthy, Katrina Pierson, and Amy Nord. He especially wants to extend his gratitude to the firm’s clients who in many cases have become dear friends over the years.
One of Bob’s favorite hobbies was taking photos of Milaca school activities – especially sporting events – and posting the images online for participants and their families to view and download.
In addition to his wife and children, Bob is survived by his parents of Princeton/Milaca; his brother, Bill, and wife Chris of Cloquet; mother-in-law, Pearl Jacobsen of Milaca; along with aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews.
