Leon Bunkley Jr. was born May 28,1959 in Butler, Georgia, to Leon "Jim" Bunkley and Mary Nolton Bunkley. He left his earthly body and went to his heavenly home December 30, 2020. Leon was educated in both Taylor and Fulton Counties School Systems in Georgia.

At the age of 37, Leon had a radical encounter with his Savior Jesus Christ and his life would never be the same. That encounter led him from Georgia to Tennessee in 1994 where he spent two years in Pulaski, Tennessee, getting to know his Savior. After those two years in Pulaski, Tennessee, he moved to Smyrna, Tennessee, where he met and married Delorice Martin-Bunkley,

He was preceded in death by his father, mother, three siblings, Terry and Carlene Bunkley and Cynthia; his daughter, Tammica Bigby; and son, Deon Bigby.

He leaves to cherish his memory: wife, Delorice; along with their six children, Jackie Bigby, LeAndra Bigby, Emmanuel Bunkley all of Georgia, Kalitha Martin, Courtney (Cedric) Simpson and Damarcus Crawford all of Tennessee; brother, Andre Bunkley of Georgia; thirteen grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, loving family members and friends.


In efforts to be in compliance with the regulations of the CDC guidelines, mask are required upon entry of the building and temperatures will be checked at the door. This is for the safety of our community as well as our funeral home staff.
