Robert Neal Hunt, age 87, of Abingdon, Maryland peacefully passed away on December 29, 2022, at Brightview Assisted Living in Bel Air, Maryland. Born in Baltimore, Maryland, he was the son of Frank and Catherine Hunt and the devoted husband of the late Barbara Hunt. He volunteered for many years with Abingdon Fire Department, and also served as Assistant Chief of the A.P.G. Fire Department where he retired in 1991. He often enjoyed family trips and backyard picnics with family and friends. Many remember seeing a prideful Mr. Hunt riding his John Deere tractor while caring for his well-kept yard. He was an avid train enthusiast and collector of model trains, as well as an American History buff.
Robert is survived by his sister, Evelyn Slyder; children, Debora (Jeff) Colflesh and Jeffrey (Sandra) Hunt; grandchildren, Ashley Lewis, Adam (Margaret) Hunt, and Amanda Hunt; and great-grandchildren, Jordan Lewis, Nevaeh Lewis, Kaelyn Hunt, and Georgia Hunt. In addition to his parents and wife, he was preceded in death by his daughter, Brenda Lewis, and grandson, Jason Lewis.
The family welcomes donations to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, P.O. Box 50, Memphis, TN 38101 as an expression of sympathy for his late daughter Brenda.
