Obituary for John Dickson Buntine

John Buntine, a longtime resident of Farmington Hills and proud native of Glasgow, Scotland, passed away in the loving care of his family on March 5, 2017 at the age of 93.

Born on January 31, 1924 in Glasgow, Scotland, John was the only son born to parents James and Agnus (nee. Stewart) Buntine. After the deaths of his parents, John was raised by his loving aunt.

John met the young Elizabeth Curl and the two began courtship, fell in love, and were then married on August 15, 1947 in Kilsyth, Scotland. The couple was blessed by the birth of their daughter, Jeanie. After the World War II, John made his way to Detroit, Michigan in the United States where he prepared a home for his girls. Not long after, Elizabeth and Jeanie joined him. They were blessed again when Brian was born and their family grew.

In addition to Elizabeth, his beloved wife of nearly 70 years, John is survived by his daughter, Jeanie (Ken) Lewis; son, Brian (Susan) Buntine; grandchildren, Heather, Shari (Kyle) Brown, Kevin, Jason, and Brandon; great-grandchildren, Jillian, Rachel, Mallory, Jacob and Aaron.
