Mr and Mrs Hunt, You both were fun and taught us valuable lessons at Wilton. I still laugh to myself when thinking about some of "the words of wisdom" from Mr Hunt. Thank you for being an inspiring teacher who cared. Sincerely, Ellen Strother Thayer

Judy, David and the Hunt family: I was sadden to hear of the loss of your husband and dad. He was a great man, teacher, Boy Scout leader of Troop 644 and mentor for all that knew him. I learned many a valuable lesson during my time with him sitting in his eight grade class, earning merit badges, camping, hiking and studying the stars in the sky. Please know that you and the Hunt family will be in my prayers in the weeks ahead.

Goodbye Mr. Hunt. You were a great teacher: we learned a lot, as well as had fun in our eighth grade class with you. My sympathies to all of your family. You will be greatly missed.
