John "Barry" Hunt HOMOSASSA, FLORIDA John "Barry" Hunt, 77, of Homosassa, Florida, went to be with his Lord Jesus, on Tuesday, November 26, 2013. Barry was born in Virden, Illinois, on February 3, 1936. He spent most of his adult life as an auto mechanic and worked for Ray Drumheller's Choice Motors for many years and for Tracy McAllister. He moved to Homosassa from Waynesboro, Virginia, 10 years ago. He was a member of the Citrus County Community Church in Inverness. He was a friend of Bill W., a member of St. John's Episcopal Church in Waynesboro on Saturday nights. Barry volunteered for the Sanctuary Mission in Homosassa. He was committed to carrying the message of recovery through many area recovery groups, to all those suffering from addictions. He loved rebuilding computers and all things mechanical. There was never a night so cold nor a day so hot that Barry would not lend a helping hand to friends or family. Barry was predeceased by his parents, Robert and Luella Hunt; brothers, Bobby Hunt, Illionois; and Pat Hunt, Tallahassee, Florida; brothers-in-law of Waynesboro, Jesse Rodgers and Henry Rodgers. He is survived by his wife, Vera "Kinny" Rodgers Hunt; children, Katherine (David) Sands of Illinois, Steven Hunt of Illinois, Jennette (Rick) Noah of Florida, Tina (Garland) Heatwole of Virginia; siblings, Sheila Marie Webber, Terry Hunt, Illinois; sister-in-law, Patty Hunt; brothers-in-law, Bill Rodgers, Tommy Rodgers, and Davey Rodgers of Virginia; grand-children, Joel Noah, Lexi Noah, Hannah (Joe) Dapolito, Alex Heatwole, and Elyse Heatwole; great-grandson, Oliver Dapolito (his little buddy); as well as two special aunts, Juanita Ballew, and Kathleen Rodgers of Mint Spring, Virginia; and numerous nieces and nephews. Barry's body was donated to science. A memorial service was held Saturday, November 30, 2013, at Brown Funeral Home in Lecanto, Florida, officiated by Pastor Joe Hupchick. To those who may wish to make donations, the family requests they may be made at the on-line websites for Citrus County Hospice in Lecanto, Florida, to Wounded Warrior Project or to Teen Challenge.
