Hunt Jimmie Folder

Jimmie Robert “Jay” Hunt, 51, of Golden City, MO passed away on Sunday June 16, 2019 in his home surrounded by his wife and daughters. Jay was born May 4, 1968 in El Dorado Springs, MO to Jimmie Albert and Wilma Maxine Hunt, one of four children. Jay was a lifelong resident of the Jerico Springs area. He retired from IWX Trucking Company after 18 years and approximately two million safety miles.

Jay is survived by his wife Lisa who he married on September 7, 2016 in a small private ceremony.

Jay was a lover of many hobbies, but spending time with family was what he enjoyed most. Hobbies he enjoyed most were hunting with his little shadow Alisha, tinkering on cars with Nicky by his side, and wreaking havoc with his partner in crime, Jessie. He always made time for dirty joke telling, fishing, and guitar picking with close family and friends.

To the family of Jay Hunt, I’m honored to say that I was finally able to meet this man only a few weeks ago. I enjoy hearing all the funny stories of Jay’s past, but most of all I loved watching him with his grandchildren and daughters. It was beautifully evident how proud he was of them all. He beamed with joy. My condolences for your loss, but know that you will meet again. God bless
