Obituary for Vernon M. Hunt

Vernon M. Hunt, age 89, of Lapeer passed away June 12, 2016. He was born January 18, 1927 in North Branch, MI, the son of Howard and Blanche (Warren) Hunt. He married Vivian Churchill on June 25, 1947 in Goodrich, MI. Mr. Hunt loyally served his country in the U.S. Medical Corps in Vienna, Austria from 1945-46. After serving his country in WWII, Vernon became a builder and had a construction business in the Lapeer area for over 50 years. Among other interests, he enjoyed spending time with his family, traveling, building things in his workshop, and attending antique car shows. He was a long-time member of the Lapeer Seventh-day Adventist Church and was honored, along with his wife, by the namesake of the Hunt Community Center on Turrill Rd.

He is survived by two children, Gwendolyn Billington of Lapeer and Donald (Judy) Hunt of North Branch, daughter-in-law Shirley Hunt of Lapeer, 8 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren, and two sisters, Edith Peterson and Normagene (Byron) Churchill. Mr. and Mrs. Hunt befriended the Sanabria family of Colombia, South America on a mission trip there and assisted in the education of three daughters, Gladys (Napoleon) Sanabria-Escobar of Silver Spring, Maryland, Azhenedt (Ray) Sanabria of Washington, D.C., and Adriana (Gustavo) Sanabria of Bogoto, Colombia. The families remain close to this day. Mr. Hunt was preceded in death by his parents, his wife, Vivian, son Duane Hunt, brothers Russell, Wilbur, Alton, Vernon's twin brother Virgil and granddaughter Jessica Lynn Hunt.

A memorial service honoring both Vernon and Vivian's life will take place on July 17th at 3:00 PM at the Seventh-day Adventist Church, 986 Turrill Rd, Lapeer, MI. Friends may visit from 2:00 pm until the time of service. Memorial donations to Paradise Animal Rescue or ADRA are greatly appreciated.
