Mr. Galedon Roscoe Hunt, son of the late Welburn and Ophia (Spurling) Hunt, passed from this life on Wednesday, September 25, 2019 at his home after a sudden illness. He was 67 years, 11 months, and 25 days of age. He was raised in the Mt. Gilboa Baptist Church, and later attended the Saloma Baptist Church with his wife as his health allowed. He was a retired employee of the City of Campbellsville, having worked many years driving a truck for the sanitation department. He didn’t simply overcome physical hardships – he truly enjoyed working. His ready smile and genuine heart will be dearly missed.

One expectant grandchild,
And a host of other family and friends.
He was also preceded in death by a stepdaughter, Donna Mendoza.
