Bruce Hunt

December 18, 1934 — March 6, 2023

Crossville

 

Mr. Bruce Warren Hunt, age 88 of Kilpatrick, passed away peacefully on March 6, 2023 at Marshall Medical Center South; he was surrounded by his loving family. Visitation will be at McRae Funeral Home on March 8, 2023 from 10:30-2:00 with the funeral service immediately following in the chapel. A graveside service will follow at Kilpatrick Cemetery in Kilpatrick. He graduated from Crossville High School in 1954 and other than a 15-year span where he and his family lived in both Marietta and Warner Robins, GA, he was a lifelong resident of the Kilpatrick community. During that stint in Georgia, he was employed with Lockheed Martin in Atlanta and then the Warner Robins Fire Department before ultimately deciding to move his family back to Sand Mountain. Upon arriving back in Kilpatrick, Bruce and his family built a beautiful home on family land for his growing family; the same home that he lived in up until his passing. He and his wife would go on to build a successful poultry and cattle farm and then retire from the State of Alabama’s Department of Transportation. Bruce will be most remembered for his unwavering love for his family and closest friends. He lived out the definition of being a neighbor, and throughout his life, gave of his time and resources to assist those in need in the community that he loved so dearly. He was a lover of all things nature, and as long as the weather allowed it, he could be caught outside enjoying the sunshine. He was an avid bird hunter and bird dog trainer extraordinaire. Perhaps his greatest past-time, however, was being behind the wheel of his Honda Goldwing motorcycle. He was able to enjoy riding his motorcycle one last time just before his 88th birthday. He is survived by his loving, devoted wife of almost 67 years, Betty Sue Frasier Hunt, and two daughters Shonda (Eric) Westbrooks and Bronna (Mike) Smith. His grandchildren, with utmost admiration, referred to him as Papa: Cade (Jordan) Smith, Presley (Pierce) Jones, and Trey Westbrooks. He was also ecstatic to learn the news that he would be a Great-Grandfather to Baby Girl Smith, due August 2023. Brother Ben (Linda) Hunt. A host of nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents Joe and Pearl Hunt and an infant son, Sidney Joe Hunt. Pallbearers will be Mike Smith, Cade Smith, Pierce Jones, Eric Westbrooks, Trey Westbrooks, and Harold Hunt. Honorary pallbearers will be Donald Simpson, Glen Ragsdale, and Johnny Nix. He leaves behind a legacy of love and honor; truly a legacy that his family will not soon forget. The Hunt Family would like to extend a special recognition to those individuals and groups that assisted in caring for our husband, father, and grandfather during his journey to eternal, Heavenly rest. In lieu of flowers, we suggest donations to the Kilpatrick Cemetery Fund. Mailing address: 433 County Rd. 386 Albertville, AL 35951
