In Memory of Larry Hunt

Hunt, Lawrence W.

Age 98, Larry was born September 25, 1910, the son of Eliphalet and Elenora Hunt.He died on November 7, 2008. He is survived by his brother, Wilson H. Hunt of Valley Park, MO and special friends Stan Bidlack, Dave Hoffman, Ann Markovits, and Jack and Friedelle Winans. He also leaves a legion of friends, colleagues, and admirers across the nation who greatly mourn the end of his long and extraordinary life. He served in the Merchant Marine and the U.S. Navy during WWII. He was a master-craftsman, builder and outdoorsman, and an inspiring leader of youth. His intelligence and wealth of know-ledge, information and experience were awesome. Those who had the pleasure of his company and the benefit of his talents will ever cherish his memory. As Larry wished, cremation has taken place and there will be no formal services. Special thanks must be given to the many caregivers at Silver Maples and CRC who cared for him over the past several years. Those who would like to express their appreciation of his life are encouraged to con- tribute to the Forever Woodcraft Foundation, Adirondack Woodcraft Camps, P.O. Box 219, Old Forge, NY 13420. Arrangements by Staffan-Mitchell Funeral Home.
