Charles Daniel "Danny" Bunton, age 71, of Russellville, entered his Heavenly home on November 17, 2017, surrounded by his loving family at Legacy Heights Nursing Home in Russellville. He was born March 15, 1946, in Russellville, to the late Edward Bunton and Gladys Adell Bunton Lee.
Danny attended the Arkansas Children's Colony (now the Conway Human Development Center), in Conway, where he met his wife, Nancy. They were married October 10, 1987, and recently celebrated 30 years together. He was employed at the Marva Workshop for forty years. He loved working there and enjoyed the friendships made over the years. It was more than just a job, it was a family to him. Danny was a faithful member of the First Assembly of God in Russellville until his health failed.
He was a resident of Legacy Heights Nursing Home for three years. A special thanks to the nursing staff for their compassionate care. Also, thank you to Bro. Bud Avants for his faithful ministry to Danny and Nancy over the years and to the many others who took them under their wings and made sure they had a way to church, revivals, singings and wherever they needed to go. The family appreciates each one of you.
Danny never met a stranger and knew most everyone in Russellville where he and Nancy lived. He had a love for attending church and often visited different churches when he was able. He also loved hanging out at the PDQ.
