Bobbie C Hunt, died suddenly on Tuesday, January 1, 2019.
Bobbie was born to the late Olivia and Willard G Hunt on August 16, 1948 in Smithfield, Virginia. He lived in Smithfield with his siblings Willard M, Mary (M.A.), Lee, Teolar, Odessa, Marie, Clotell, Mabel, Ada, Jack, and Beverly until he graduated from high school and enlisted in the U.S. Army. He served four years active duty in the military police. Following an honorable discharge, Bobbie entered college. In 1980, Bobbie graduated from Virginia State University in Petersburg, Virginia with a degree in Industrial Arts Education. He taught in the Norfolk City school system for a brief period before pursuing a career with State Farm Insurance Company in 1981. He retired from State Farm in 2011.

Bobbie met Cynthia Mayo (Yvonne) in 1975 and they were later married in 1981. They had two children: Ashley and Greg.

Bobbie enjoyed fishing, biking, hiking, attending Virginia State football and basketball games as well as the annual CIAA tournament. He was a member of the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity.

Bobbie is survived by his wife, Yvonne Hunt and children Ashley Hunt, Greg Hunt (Crissy), Bobbie John Norwood-Hunt, and Dawn Norwood-Hunt. He is survived by siblings Mary “M.A.” Grandison (Joe) of Portsmouth, VA, Armstice “Lee” Hunt (Jean) of Jamaica, NY, Ada Hunt of Carrollton, VA, and Odessa Dukes, Marie Edwards, Mabel Hunt, Jack Hunt, and Beverly Hunt all of Smithfield, VA. He is survived by grandchildren Isaiah Hunt, Ariel Hunt, Demetrius Hunt, Dorothy Hunt, Xaria Hunt, Xayden Hunt, Laila Hunt, and Dawn JoAnn Hunt as well as great grandchildren Marlee Evans, Daelynn Rashawn Dunn, Johanna Mizell and a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.” (Ja 4:13-15)

It still doesn’t seem real...I don’t like the new “normal” because I just want you to come back. I want someone to tell me that this is all a bad dream. I miss you so much dad!!! Zae doesn’t really understand because he wants us to get on a plane, go to heaven, tell God we want you back and bring you home...this is tough and I’m trying so hard to be so strong. We miss you so much!!!!! I love you dad!!!

So sorry for your loss. Bobby was a really good friend and mentor to me. It's hard to believe he is gone. Please know that God is always good and Bobby is in heaven. RIP Bobby.

To Cynthia, Ashley and Greg. We can't express the pain and sorrow we have in hearing the news of Bobbie's passing. We still can't believe it. We have such good memories of the times you all lived in Bloomington and the kids were in school together. Bobbie was such a kind man and had a big heart. You are in our thoughts and prayers. We wish for comfort and peace for you and send you all our love. Rest in peace Bobbie! Love from the Huff family--Bryan, Cathy, Lauren and Bryan Jr.

To the Hunt Family: I am truly saddened by the passing of Bobbie Hunt; my friend, frat brother and VSU alum. We were together at a football game last season and we talked about six weeks ago about arrangements for the CIAA Basketball Tournament. RIP Bobbie
