He was also named by Lacrosse Magazine to the All-Century team, and last year was named by The Baltimore Sun as one of the state's top 200 athletes of all time.

"Lloyd was a strong personality and had a lot of charisma. People enjoyed being around him," said Mr. Scott. "He was just very, very popular among the guys who played with him at Hopkins. I mean, he's just one of the all-time greats."

After graduating from Hopkins, Mr. Bunting joined Mr. Myers as his assistant for two years at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y., where Mr. Myers was athletic director and the head lacrosse and football coach.

After leaving Hofstra in the early 1950s, Mr. Bunting worked in sales management in the office products business, which took him and his family to Richmond, Va., Morrisville, Pa., Mountainside, N.J., Mount Kisco, N.Y., until finally returning to Timonium in the 1970s.

He had worked for A.B. Dick, Oce, and finally the T. Talbott Bond Co., a Baltimore-Washington photocopier dealership, from which he retired in the mid-1990s.

Mr. Bunting continued playing lacrosse well into his 40s and was the founder of the Richmond (Va.) Lacrosse Club in 1953, and the Chicago Lacrosse Club in 1965.

"My father was all about fair play and leaving everything he had on the field, and if you did that, you had nothing to be ashamed of," said a son, Lloyd Bunting III of Wellesley, Mass., in an April interview in The Boston Globe.

The elder Mr. Bunting happily followed the lacrosse careers of two of his granddaughters, Caroline Bunting, who is senior lacrosse captain at the University of Pennsylvania, and her sister, Abby Bunting, a sophomore midfielder at Brown University.

Mr. Bunting, a former resident of Elkridge Estates in Roland Park, has been living at Pickersgill since late last year. He enjoyed painting landscapes and maritime scenes in watercolors and acrylics.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Aug. 3 at the Glass Pavilion, next to Levering Hall, on the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St.

In addition to his son and two granddaughters, Mr. Bunting is survived by his wife of 63 years, the former Claire Gough: another son, Scott Bunting of Madison, Wis.; two daughters, Marty Garges of Charlotte, N.C., and Carolyn O'Connor of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario; and six other grandchildren.
