Death Certificate for Marvin Lee Bunton, Jr.

 
 
 

Becky and Marvin's next-to-youngest child, Clyde Richard Bunton, died 23 Apr 1975 as a result of an overdose of alcohol and prescription sleeping-pills.  He was 40-years-old and separated from his wife, Katie Fox, at the time.  The cause of death was listed as "accidental" but circumstances lead you to believe it could have been otherwise.  He is listed as being an alcoholic.  Clyde was buried in the cemetery of South River Baptist Church in Statesville, NC.
