Billy “Gene” Hunter was born on July 11, 1928, in Oklahoma City to Henry Silas Hunter and Floy Jewel Cox Hunter. Billy “Gene” passed from this earthly life on August 30, 2020, in Fort Worth, TX.

Billy “Gene” went to high school at Capitol Hill High School in Oklahoma City, OK. Right after high school, he joined the Army and was a US Army & National Guard Master Sergeant from 1945-1956 and is a Korean War Veteran. He attended the University of Oklahoma and graduated from Southern Methodist University with a degree in business administration.

He was a member of Full Gospel Businessmen's Fellowship and served as Chapter President. He also attended Rockwood Park Assemblies of God and served as a board member. He was in the Civil Patrol, a Royal Rangers troop leader, Haltom City Gun Club member, and Republican Party State Delegate.

He was a voracious reader and continued to take college classes on subjects of interest including animal husbandry at TCC into his 70’s. He loved his family and worked hard to provide the very best he could for them. He was happy anytime he could spend time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He always looked forward to family gatherings, and was available to counsel, minister, or just listen. He loved God, family, and country.

Gene was a tall, stately, refined gentleman who will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

2 Corinthians 4:8-10 [nkjv] 8 we are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— 10 always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.

Janet Dickey

September 3, 2020

My husband, William Dickey, and I (Janet) first met the Hunters when Pleasant Glade Assembly merged w First Assembly of God Colleyville back in 2003. Gene and Dolores were one of the first couples we met in the Adult Sunday School class taught by Vernon and Marjorie Metz. We immediately liked this wonderful Christian couple who were always faithful to their church and our Lord, Jesus Christ. Gene and I had many conversations about our conservative beliefs:) When Gene could no longer come to church due to health issues that started a few years ago, I still stayed in touch with either a phone call but usually a card up until the time of his death. He will be greatly missed. I know he is now made whole and with his Lord and Savior.
