William W. “Bill” Hunt

William W. “Bill” Hunt, 88, of Lebanon, formerly of Kokomo, passed away Friday, Nov. 2, 2012, at Witham Memorial Hospital.

He was born on March 8, 1924, in Kokomo, the son of the now late Emmitt and Goldie (Calicutt) Hunt. He had lived in Lebanon for the past five years with his daughter, Cathy, and her family.

Bill worked as a shoe repairman for more than 50 years, and was the owner of Hunt’s Shoe Repair. He enjoyed music greatly and was an accomplished guitarist. He also loved fishing and old westerns, and could fix almost anything he put his mind to.

He was a Jehovah’s Witness for more than 40 years and an elder in the church for 35 years. He always credited his grandfather — who raised him and most of his siblings after his parents passed away when Bill was about 7 years of age — for giving him the wealth of experience in raising his own family, which he was very proud of, and for being a loving grandfather.

Bill married Betty R. Wright on March 15, 1946, in Jeffersonville, and she survives.

Also surviving are his children, Cathy (Mark) Fachini, Michael (Beverly) Hunt, Wesley (Kathy) Hunt and Lori (Randall) Brooker; and five grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents; three brothers, Francis, Robert and Emery; two sisters, Jane and Louise; and an infant brother.

Visitation will be 2 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witness, 1205 Ransdell Court, Lebanon. There will be a memorial service at 3 p.m. Saturday at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witness. At a later date, his remains will be privately laid to rest in Crown Point Cemetery in Kokomo.
