In Austin, he joined the First Baptist Church and attended L.C. Anderson High School then Huston-Tillotson University where he joined Omega Psi Phi Fraternity and majored in Chemistry. Professionally, he enjoyed an illustrious career at SACHEM, Inc. where he spent over 50 years. During his time at SACHEM, Louis help pioneer many processes, was recognized as an iconic figure and held the position of Vice President of Quality & ChemStewards where he was proud to lead regarding the commitment required for performance excellence.

He was preceded in death by his late wife Frances Marie Hunt, whom he shared marriage with for 40 years and siblings Robert L. Hunt, Larry D. Hunt, Dale Hunt Everett, Roy L. Hunt and Patsy J. Hunt Manor.
Louis is survived by his two children; daughter Lindsey Elaine Hunt and son Kevin Louis Hunt (wife Marcie); grandchildren, Kylee Alexa and Gavin Tyler Hunt; two sisters, Stella Hunt Pullin of Austin, TX and Mattie Hunt Carter of DeSoto, TX; and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. Louis fought a courageous battle with prostate cancer but the disease never defined him nor did it defeat his dignity. His family is forever in awe of his steadfast support, advice, faith, and most importantly being an excellent person in all ways that truly matter. He is forever loved and dearly missed here on earth, but is now at home with his Lord.
