Jake Hunter will be missed, especially his mischievous "Hunter" sense of humor! Jake is in Glory with God now, thank you Lord for taking care of him.

I knew Mr. Hunter in the mid-1970's. As would be expected from my youth, he was usually on the practice putting green, and I on the driving range. I think of him every single time I play a round of pick-up golf with friends, specifically when he told me that I was better off staying on the fairway than going long. It has been many years since I have seen him, but I have thought of him many times through the years. John Broadbent

We are so sorry to hear of Jake's passing. Have known him all my life. I always appreciated his keen sense of humor. It was great to have had him as a cousin. We extend our deepest sympathy to family members. We are sorry that we cannot attend but due to a recent injury, we are unable to make the trip.

My condolences to the Hunter family, especially cousin Mck. Never met Jake, but Mck shared stories about him. He no doubt will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace.

Marty, words cannot express how sorry I am for the loss of your father. Know that you are loved and I am praying for you. I wish I wasn't so far away. Love you!
