Climber with Local Roots perishes

I'm just now learning of the climbing death of a 28 year old man with Delavan, WI roots. Matthew Bunker, who was raised in Delavan and who's parents live still live there, got separated from his climbing partner on their way down a dangerous trail in Mount Rainier in Washington. Unfortunately, Matthew's body is unable to be recovered. I'm sure this is a very difficult weekend for Matthew's family. Matthew served five years in the Army. Condolences to Matthew's friends and family. Find Matthew's obituary here.
