April 2 1957 – December 22 2017

Craig Bunker beloved husband, father, son, brother, friend and Dawg fan passed away on December 22, 2017 after a brief but courageous battle with brain cancer.

He is survived by his wife Vicki, children Marisa and Chase, mother Blanche and siblings Carla (Greg), Brian (Trudi), Mark, Scott (Karen) and Todd (Angie).

Craig was a well regarded General Manager at Nordic Cold Storage in Seattle’s Pioneer Square District with 40 dedicated years of service. He earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business from the University of Washington. Craig enjoyed fishing, hunting, Husky games and relaxing at Crescent Bar and at the cabin in Green Water. He was a Special Olympics volunteer for Chase’s Auburn track and softball teams.

Ask anyone who knew him, and they would tell you that Craig was a kind soul with a wonderful sense of humor and an infectious laugh. He was a role model and source of strength and will be sorely missed by his family, friends and the Seattle business community.

His Celebration of Life will take place at the Auburn Community and Event Center at 1:00 PM on Sunday January 28, 2018. Casual attire and memories to share are requested. Donations to assist with Craig’s medical expenses can be made on Go Fund Me (Schager/Bunker Medical Challenges).
