Obituary of Rev. Clarence Bungay
Age 76, of Lower Sackville, formerly of South Rawdon, passed away peacefully, into the hands of his Saviour, on Friday, September 15, 2017 in the QEII Health Sciences Centre, Infirmary Site. Born on November 5, 1940 in Halifax, he was a son of the late Carl and Agnes (Howard) Bungay.
Clarence was happily married 55 years to his childhood sweetheart, Karen. Early in his life he worked as a sheet metal worker until 1979 when he gave his life to God and felt called into full time ministry. He went on to Bible College and served in many churches throughout Nova Scotia. He was presently serving as Pastor at Sackville United Baptist Church. During these years God used him to touch the lives of many. The impact of his life will be everlasting to his family and all who knew him. Clarence was a devoted and loving husband to Karen and an incredible Dad and Papa to his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Clarence is survived by his wife, the former Karen Boutilier; sons, Carl (Jenny), Allan and Troy (Amy); daughter, Janine (David) Horton; grandchildren, Mysti, Melissa, Justin, Amanda, Lyndsay and Joel; great-grandchildren, Landyn, Tanner and Cooper; brothers, James “Jimmy” (Dale) Bungay, John Howardson, and George and Joe Bungay; sisters, Carol (David) Nicholas and Ruth (Doug) Blakney.
