More detail on this person: BUNTING, David Franklin Of Cambridge, MA, died on July 13 at the age of 70, following a year-long battle with brain cancer. His family and friends will sorely miss David's sense of humor, his strength of character, his contagious enthusiasm, and his pleasure in bringing friends together on a regular basis, whether life-long or newly met. David grew up in Melrose, Massachusetts and played varsity ice hockey at Dartmouth College. After graduating in 1963 he served in the Marine Corps as an officer and helicopter pilot during the Vietnam War. Following his military service, he pursued a series of entrepreneurial ventures while also obtaining a Masters in Management from the Sloan School of MIT. Thereafter he structured investment projects and for the last several years was the managing director of Chatsworth Securities LLC. David's creative bent was seen in the many residences he transformed with a unique use of color, architectural vision, and landscape design. David was an avid sailor and also took up single-scull rowing later in life, competing in the Head of the Charles regatta three times. He is survived by his beloved wife, Nia Lane Chester; his children, Derek and Nicole Bunting; and his step-children, Caben and Ian Chester. A gathering of friends and family will be held at a later date. Donations may be made in memory of David to further brain cancer research at the followingaddress:Massachusetts General Hospital Development Office, c/o Dr. Andrew Chi, 165 Cambridge St., Suite 600, Boston, MA 02114.
