I have many fond memories of Uncle Bill. He was always kind. He was always fun to be around. His laughter was bold and infectious. I had a deep respect for him. I’m honored to say that Uncle Bill was a quiet, strong and positive, force in my life. He lived life to the fullest – not just in longevity and achievement, but in happiness as well. The world needs more men like Uncle Bill. He will be missed.

Bill Hunter was a happy man and very proud of his loving wife, Kay, and children and grand child. He was devoted to family get togethers and always had interesting stores to tell. He had a hearty laugh and was a great conversationalist in mixed environments. He (and Kay) could always be counted on to participate in immediate family and extended family events. He was just fun to be with. And.... his home made wine was the best.
