Johnny Ray Bunn, known to his grandsons as “Pawtchy”, 63, passed away peacefully on Wednesday at home surrounded by his family. His passing marks the end of a long battle with cancer that Johnny fought with grace and so much humor.
Johnny was a lifelong resident of Huntsville. He attended Mountain Gap Elementary and Middle Schools and was one of the first graduating classes of Grissom High School. He and his wife ran a successful local business for 33 years and he was a major part of the local heating and air conditioning community.

Johnny Bunn never met a stranger and lit up every room he entered. He used his humor to bring laughter to everyone around him, even in the toughest of times. He loved animals and even rehabilitated several baby raccoons in his lifetime. He and his wife traveled as often as they could, and he was always ready for an adventure. He was an avid hunter, a loyal friend and proud grandpa. Despite a years long battle with cancer, he spent much of his healthy time in the past several years volunteering at Clearview Cancer Institute (CCI) to give back to other cancer patients. In 2018, he put his bushy white beard to use as a local Santa Claus. He loved playing Santa and was proud to collect 1700 toys for children with cancer or children of cancer patients at CCI.

He is survived by the love of his life, his wife of almost 30 years, Leigh; his brother, Neal; his son, Jason and wife, Cherie; his grandson, Isaiah; his daughter, Jennifer and husband, Dustin; his grandson, Carsyn; his son, Matthew; his daughter, Jessica; and his dog, Maggie Mae.

He is preceded in death by his mother, Jeanette Lawley Bunn, who passed in 2013 and his father, Johnny Fay Bunn, who passed March 31, 2020.

In light of COVID-19, we sadly are not able to have a visitation or funeral open to the public.

Memorials may be made in his name to Russel Hill Cancer Foundation which funds CCI.

While everyone who knew him will grieve this huge loss, remember that if Johnny were here, he would say, “It’s all good!”
