Hunter was an absolute joy to be around. His dedication to his teammates, friends and school should be an example for all to follow. I pray he is at peace now and his impact on our lives will always remain.

I grew up with Hunter’s Aunt Monica &, so of course, I also knew his beautiful mom Tonya & his grandparents Curt & Diane... All wonderful people~ Hunter has been a missing piece with the student body at Gaston High School since his accident ~ my children, who went to school with Hunter, say his humor & outgoing personality has been & will continue to be missed. Rejoice Hunter in your reunion with your mom Tonya & granddad Curt! We will all see you again when our lives here is finished ~

I took care of Hunter when he was on my hall for almost 3 years. He was the sweetest person, I got him to grin some. He brought joy to my heart. You will be missed, love you Hunter.
