The University Church community is saddened to announce the passing of Irving Bunton, our Music Director Emeritus and a shining light in our congregation. Irving was a giant in the Chicago music community, using his gifted ear to serve as a teacher, mentor, and friend, and he was beloved by his five children and wife, Ragina. Let us keep the Bunton family in our prayers.

A homegoing service filled with the beautiful music he loved was held September 19, 2015, at Second Presbyterian Church in Chicago.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Irving Bunton Memorial Skinner Pipe Organ Fund. Make checks payable to University Church, 5655 S. University Ave., Chicago, IL 60637.

Let us PRAISE GOD for the life of Irving Bunton, our beloved maestro!!!
