Royce Bunnel is one of the founding members of OB Cues and was a true credit to the sport. His career in the billiards industry impacted many lives and propelled the industry forward in many respects. Royce was the first member of the OB team I had the pleasure of meeting when I was a young man and it was through his generosity and support of my game that I was able to begin my journey with OB Cues.
Royce leaves behind not only a wonderful legacy of contribution to the billiard industry but also a family in his wife Mary, daughter Kelsey and son Chris. Mary now works full time at OB Cues as their bookkeeper and cares for their son Chris who has autism.
As a member of the OB family and someone who's very much in debted to the work that Royce accomplished during his life, I feel like I would be remiss if I didn't do something to give back to a guy who helped me jump start my competitive career. As such, any purchases made through Linares Pro Pool, of OB cues and products will have 10% of profits donated to the Bunnel family forever.
If you'd like to learn more about how Royce has affected the OB story, you can do so here. Or if you'd like to make a contribution directly to his family then you can do so by donating to Mary's paypal account.
