I first met James Bunker when I interviewed him for a job at Evolving. He was sparky, enthusiastic and hugely energetic even during the interview and it was a no-brainer to say yes to asking him to join our team.
Over the years we had many nights out and outings with work – and it was always a giggle when Jamie was around!
More recently in the last 6 years we became closer friends, sharing a love of music, lyrics and poetry and I loved the fact that a conversation with him would never ever be even remotely predictable.
And usually very, very sweary. 😂
He loved a good music gig…
He never gave me a hard time about anything (even if I deserved it) and was always good for a hug. He was an engaging and entertaining dinner guest, and a fabulous cook too.
One of my regrets is that I didn’t get to sample more of his cooking.
One of my best decisions recently was going out to a record fair just to say hi to him – even when I didn’t feel like it. He was always worth the effort even when he did my head in.
Jamie you knobhead, I’m going to miss you so much.
Sweet dreams, darling boy.
This one’s for you, Jamieo.
