Groom Dies After Leaving Wedding Dance Early

September 9, 1986

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) _ A groom who complained of chest pains was taken from his wedding dance to a hospital, where he died of an apparent heart attack.

Gaylord ″Rick″ Bundy died Saturday night, said Marlys Houghton, nursing supervisor at Medcenter One.

Earlier in the day, Bundy had married Rose Sigvaldsen of Bismarck.

Bundy, 46, of Bismarck, had gone outside for air during the wedding dance at the Knights of Columbus club, said club manager Arlene Rupp. He complained of chest pains and family members took him to the hospital, she said.

After being told Bundy would not be returning to the dance, the band and most of the guests left, but a small group of friends remained and awaited news, Ms. Rupp said.

″They decided to do that rather than all running to the hospital,″ she said.

They later received word that Bundy had died, Ms. Rupp said.

″We were all very shocked. I just can’t believe it happened,″ she said.
