Obituary

Roy Peter Bungert was born on June 1, 1931 in Minneapolis, MN to Ferdinand and Dorothy (Haeg) Bungert. He grew up in Minnesota with his 14 brothers and sisters. Roy spent 4 years in the US Air Force during the Korean War. He was stationed in Omaha, NE, where he met and later married Dorothy Helen Kocourek. Roy had a hunting accident shortly after proposing to Dorothy, so he was always teased about having a shotgun engagement. After the military, he went to work for Northwestern Bell, where he worked for 33 years, retiring in 1986.
In 1995, Roy and Dorothy moved to Sturgis, SD, and got much enjoyment out of hosting bikers every year during the Sturgis Rally. Roy loved to go camping with family at Gordon Gulch in Hill City, SD, and also with the Knights of Columbus Camporees. He enjoyed fishing and drinking beer, because it was always “5 o’clock somewhere”. Roy also loved to travel, especially to the Czech Republic, where he always had fun drinking with his cousin-in-law, Slavek, even though Roy didn’t speak Czech and Slavek didn’t speak English. During his lifetime, Roy was actively involved in the Knights of Columbus. He was the Grand Knight from 1969 to 1970, and was crowned King of the Mardi Gras in 1974. Family time was always very important to Roy, having grown up with so many brothers and sister, and later having a large family of his own with Dorothy. He was very much loved by his whole family.
Roy Bungert, 89, of Sturgis, died Tuesday, September 1, 2020, at the Fort Meade VA Hospital.
Roy is survived by his wife of 63 years, Dorothy Bungert of Sturgis, SD; his children, Joseph Bungert of Sturgis, SD, Sandra (Jeffrey) Delich of Bloomington, MN, Laurie Roberts of Centerton, AR, Robert Bungert of Sturgis, SD, and Margery (Matthew) Andryzejek of Blaine, MN; 16 grandchildren; and 5.333 great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Ferdinand and Dorothy Bungert.
Visitation will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., with a rosary at 7:00 p.m., on Monday, September 7, 2020 at Kinkade Funeral Chapel in Sturgis.
Mass of Christian Burial will be at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, September 8, 2020 at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church with Father Timothy Castor officiating. Committal service with military honors will follow at Black Hills National Cemetery.

Roy and Dorothy welcomed us to their home for several years during the Rally. We had many wonderful afternoons on their deck listening to the bikes roll in. One year we had a helicopter fly Roy over the ridge in front of their house because he “just wanted to know what was on the other side.” Sweet Roy can see what’s over every ridge now. He was a sweet man. I will treasure my memories of him. Sallie Varner, widow of Danny Varner
