While reading the obituary I realized Guy was a cousin I never had the good fortune of knowing. My parents also were born in rural Kentucky and eventually moved to Evansville’s west side. I started attending Reitz the year after Guy graduated. My cousin Donald Hunter was in my class at Reitz and his family attended Howell General Baptist Church where I was hired to refinish all the pews on the upper left my Kentucky grandfather had the same name as Guy’s brother Robert Hunter. Wish I had known Guy. My condolences to his family.
