Maxine Stowe, his manager, confirmed the news of his death to the Jamaican Observer. He died at the Medical Associates Hospital in Kingston, Jamaica.

Born Neville Livingstone, he was one of the original members of the Wailers trio and its only surviving member until now. Bob Marley died in 1981 and Peter Tosh followed a few years later in 1987.

In an interview with Afropop in 2016 in which he reflected on his career, Bunny said of his legacy, “I would just like to keep on singing. That’s my legacy. To be here to sing for you people, and to teach you people of what I’ve known by singing this music.”
