In Memoriam (updated)

I was shocked and saddened to learn that Mike Reed, known to us as Bunker Mulligan, passed away Friday morning ... at only 52, much too young.

Mike was kind and funny, and always demonstrated his intense pride in his children. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

Please go to Mike's site and read the Goodbye posted there by his son Andy (Slice).

Several bloggers have posted their memories of Mike ...

Dave Clary
Wallace-Midland, Texas of Big Gold Dog
Sara of Trying to Grok
John Donovan at Castle Argghhh
[Note - John has many more links to other blogs as well]

*new* Michael at the Armageddon Project has more links...


I should have posted this information on the plans provided by the family ...
Bunker will be laid to rest on Friday, 10 June, at the San Antonio National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, we request any memorials for him be made to Homes For Our Troops. Further information can be found at

In addition to being a father / grandfather - he was also A loving Husband. Andy notes that the family is definitely reading all comments - so share your memories of Mike if you feel inclined.
