Jerry was a kind and gentle soul who loved his family and was loved by all who knew him. Many say they have never heard a bad word about Jerry Hunt. As co-owner and operator of Hunt Logging for many years, he wasn't afraid of hard work and he never backed down from a long day in the woods. When Jerry wasn't working, he was an avid hunter of all wildlife and loved to run dogs. In his later years he enjoyed an annual trip to Colorado for elk hunting with his brother Bill, nephews and brother in law. He enjoyed his house dogs and spending time in his garden. However, time spent with family making memories was precious to him.
Jerry leaves behind to cherish his memory, his loving wife of 48 years, Billie of Blueball, Arkansas, and one daughter, Heather Bewley and husband Shane of Lamar, Arkansas. Pepaw will forever remain in the hearts of his grandchildren: Caitlyn Laster and Caleb Laster. Jerry also leaves forever memories with his sisters: Deborah Horn and husband Lewis, Tammy Sanders and Beth George and husband Jim, as well as sister in laws: Norma Crumley, Brenda Hunt (Leslie), Phyllis Rhoades (Bobby), Barb Patton (Victor), Juana Lou Holt (Ronnie), Jan Ward, Nancy Fowler, Shirley Fowler, Judy Fowler, Linda Fowler, Mary Fowler, Charlotte Fowler and Vonda Hunt. Jerry will be missed by all that knew him and the many whose lives he impacted including a large extended family, many friends, neighbors and loved ones.
