Graham Michael Bunke, 40, of Goodview, passed away on May 26, 2018, while at work.
Graham was born on November 14, 1977, in Winona, to Larry and Judy (Diercks) Bunke. He attended St. Matthew’s Elementary and was a Luther High School graduate, class of 1996, in Onalaska, Wis. He attended post secondary at Minnesota State College – Southeast Tech for Tool & Dye and Fennimore College for engine machining. He started his work career at Motor Parts, washing trucks and deliveries, followed by a part-time job at Gordies Service Center. Upon graduation, he started working at United Auto Supply in La Crosse, Wis. In 2015, he transitioned to a full-time position at Gordies. Graham married the love of his life and “his person,” Becky Windschitl, on March 25, 2015.
He had a great love of cars and loved the challenge of fixing them; he enjoyed hunting with his hunting crew and cheering on his favorite sports teams, especially all Minnesota teams. Most of all, he found great satisfaction in spending time with his family and friends. Graham had a very deep faith and was a member of Goodview Trinity Lutheran Church.
He will be forever loved and missed by his wife, Becky; parents, Judy and Larry Bunke; brother, Jordan (Kelly) Bunke; sister, Minya Bunke; father-in-law, Clem (Suzanne) Windschitl; sister-in-law, Lindsay (Andy) Berdan; brother-in-law, Bryan (Maria) Windschitl; his nieces and nephews that meant the world to him – Kylie, Mollie and Eli Berdan and Parker and Hunter Windschitl; and his spoiled fur baby, Moo, “Moobert for short” per Graham; along with many close friends and extended family.
Graham was preceded in death by his grandparents.
His funeral service will be at 11 a.m. on Thursday, May 31, 2018, at Goodview Trinity Lutheran Church with the Reverend Ben Sadler officiating. Visitation will be on Wednesday from 4-7 p.m. at Hoff Celebration of Life Center, Goodview, and one hour prior to the service at church.
