Sylvaneous Hunt

In early morn, as day began to break Saturday November 25, the death angel called our dear father Zene Hunt, to his eternal reward to be with his Lord, whom he loved and served. Twenty years ago he started his consecrated Christian life by accepting Jesus as his all sufficient Savior.

He had a great love for the lost and longed to see them brought into God's Kingdom and become His children. His faith in God was the greatest thing in his life. It sustained him in his trials of life and his late suffering. He had no taste for the superficial things of the world, but lived in constant fellowship with the unseen and the eternal.

He was born November 9, 1870 in Fleming County, the son of Freeland and Rebecca Hunt. he was united in marriage to Sally McKee the year of 1892, who departed her life June 4, 1945. To this union were born six children: Fred Hunt, with whom he made his home at Sharpsburg;  Mrs. Ben Hamm, Mrs Boone Hornback, Wallace Hamm?? of Bethel; Mrs Herman Slay and Early Hunt, Dayton, Ohio; one half-brother, Bannie Hunt, Fleming County; twenty-eight grandchildren; twenty-two great-grandchildren; a number of nieces and nephews, and a host of friends to mourn his loss.

It seems fitting that this should close with some verses of a beautiful hymn;

"Still, still with thee, when purple morning breaketh---

When the birds waketh and flee;

Fairer than morning loving daylight,

Dawns the sweet consciousness with thee

When sinks the soul subsequent to slumber,

Its closing eyes look up to prayer:

Sweet the response beneath Thee oer shading,

But sweeter still  to make thee there,

So shall it be at last in the morning

When the soul maketh a shadow flee;

O' in that hour, fairer than dawning,

Shall rise the glorious though with thee.
