Harry Michael Hunt, proud veteran
Harry Michael "Mike" Hunt, 79, of Millsboro, passed away Friday, Nov. 19, 2022, at Beebe Healthcare in Lewes. He was born Aug. 29, 1943, in Morgantown, W.Va., son of the late Harry M. and Kathryn (Brewer) L. Hunt.
Mike graduated from high school in 1961, and after graduation, he proudly served in the U.S. Army as a military police officer. Following his honorable discharge, Mike married the love of his life, Kathleen, Sept. 27, 1969, and together they raised their beautiful family. He worked as a supervisor and a claims adjuster for New Jersey MFG Insurance, retiring in 2000 after many dedicated years.
Mike had many interests and hobbies. He loved golfing and gardening, and he was an avid outdoorsman, who enjoyed hunting and fishing. He could often be found on his golf cart, smoking his cigar surrounded by neighborhood friends, children and dogs, and watching his grandchildren play sports; they were the apples of his eye. Above all, Mike treasured time spent with those who meant the most to him. He was a loving and devoted husband, father, and grandfather. Loved by many, he will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
In addition to his parents, Mike was preceded in death by his brothers-in-law Edge Wojcik and Ernie Vitale; and his nephew Joseph Urban. He is survived by his beloved wife of 53 years, Kathleen Hunt; his daughters: Jaclyn Hunt of Roselle Park, N.J., and Kristin Redziniak and her husband Ray of Hillsborough, N.J.; his grandchildren: Devin and Logan Redziniak; his siblings: Larry Hunt (Vickey) of Medfield, Mass., Linda Wojcik of Rahway, N.J., Joey Urban (Barbara) of Clark, N.J., and Jeff Urban (Donna) of Rahway; his sister-in-law, Patty Vitale of Manchester, N.J.; his 14 nieces and nephews; and his 16 great-nieces and -nephews.
