Michael A. Hunt, 62, of Marion, KY, passed away July 11, 2020, at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He was a member of Walnut Grove Baptist Church and Marion Masonic Lodge Number 256.

As you may know dad is starting to build us our next home. We weren’t expecting him to start it this early, but we can’t wait to see what he prepares for us. We can only imagine the welcome he got as he stood before God and He said follow me you good and faithful servant. I know he’s going to watch over us and guide us along the way. Dad showed me and Jamie everything we needed to know and even though it’s not fair and we wanted him 40 more years, we got years of knowing we were loved. Dad is no longer hurting and we feel the unquestionable love he has had for us. He taught us things to remember him by, but we see him in everything we do. As we moved the cutters today we realized there’s nothing he hasn’t touched. Jamie and I are the sons of a great man that touched many lives. We keep hearing that song “Thank You For Giving To The Lord.” We can see people lined up to thank him and we take comfort in that.

Mike is survived by his wife Rhonda; son, James (Kayla) Hunt; grandchildren, Ethen and Anthony Hunt; son, David Hunt; brother, Van (Nina) Hunt; and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Marvin and Gus Hunt. Graveside services will be held Wednesday, July 15, 2020, at Rowland Cemetery followed by a celebration of life at the family farm.

Donations may be made at Fredonia Valley Bank to be used at a later date for a charity of the families’ choosing.

Gilbert Funeral Home in Marion is in charge of arrangements.
