    My heart goes out to the Hunter family, especially to Bill, at this sad time. We went to grade school together; I don’t really know Bob other than that. Our mothers were friends thru activities at church. My condolences again to the family.

    Thoughts and prayers for the Hunter family. I was in Homeroom with Bob during our High School years. Always a smile for everyone, but a friend of few words. Bob was always willing to help if asked. He was a farmer through and through and a friend to anyone in need. He will be missed by all who met and knew him. Jill (Homburg) Adams
