Mr. Bunt had been the first director of tourism for the city of North Adams and was director for several years of the annual Fall Foliage Festival Parade.

He loved baseball, listening to his tunes, watching Ken Burns documentaries and animals, even squirrels. He enjoyed to-do lists and playing fix-it around the house, but most of all loved watching the Yankees while listening to his girls talk and laugh in the next room.

He and his wife, the former Rochelle Friedman, were married Sept. 19, 1981.

Besides his wife and mother, he leaves his three daughters Alicia Bunt, Angela Bunt and Jacqueline Bunt; a brother, Don Watson, and sister, Mary Roth.

Pat and I send our deepest condolences. In the short time that we got to know Rod from his work with Sean at the Station,we always enjoyed his company and the funny tales that emerged from conversation. I enjoyed our spirited discussions over red sox and Indians outcomes early in the morning before heading off to work...Rod was really a great guy to know and always a gentleman.We will miss him

Very sad to hear of Rod's passing. When I had a gallery here in North Adams I worked with Rod from time to time through the city's office of tourism. He was always an extremely friendly guy and I don't think I can recall seeing him without a welcoming smile. My sympathy goes out to his family and friends.
