James (Jim) R. Bunting -Rochester Cremation

James (Jim) R. Bunting passed away on April 10, 2023. He is pre-deceased by his parents George and Marion Bunting, brother in law Fred Metzger, Jr, sister in law Barb Bunting.

He is survived by his wife of 49 years Annie Metzger Bunting; daughters, Lyndsey Bunting (Gregg Combes), Jaime (Stefan) Keefe, Kailey Bunting; siblings Anna, Michael, Mary Ellen, Paul (Jackie), John (Darlene) Bunting; and many in-laws, cousins, nieces and nephews. Also, his best friend George Hackett of 45 years along with his grand-dogs Truffle and Figment.

Jim graduated from Cardinal Mooney High School and attended St. Edwards University and Brockport College.

He was president and owner of Tube Tech, Inc. for 26 years. He was president and owner of Rochester Tube Fabricators for 5 years.

He was a loving son, brother, husband, dad, and friend.  He was quietly generous, sarcastically funny, and had a deep love for his family.

We hope that in heaven he’ll be golfing, grilling, driving a sports car, and listening to the Moody Blues. He will be deeply missed.

Per his wishes, there is no service, but you can toast to him with a shot of Jameson.

    My heart and prayers go out to you and your family. He was always good to my sons, letting them work on Saturdays during their college years. Many happy memories from the olden days. So glad we were able to talk a short while ago. Our deepest sympathy. Rest in peace.

    So sorry to hear about my old buddy Jim. I went in the Army after HS, married my wonderful wife Nancy, moved to Connecticut for 10 years had two sweet daughters then moves to Skaneateles then off to North Carolina. Regretfully, I lost touch with Jim for sure. I do remember hearing he married the love of his life, Annie. What a wonderful life you both have put together.
    Thoughts and prayers to you all.

    Here is my story of my cousin Jim. Who I always thought was one of the cool guys. When I was six or seven I got into it with a neighbor kid about my own age and got the best of him ,one of the few fights I probably ever won. Well he came back with his older brother . His older brother came to kick my butt , man was I scared , this guy was much bigger than me. It happened that the Bunting family was their on Harmony lane for some sort of get together. Thankfully my cousin Jim came out to see what was going on and the big kid said he was going to give me a beating , Jim said no you are not. They stared each other down for awhile till the the big kid decided to go home . May not seem like much to some but I never forgot it.There arent many people who would put themselves in harms way for you but he did for me that day and I never forgot it , thanks Jim R.I.P.
