Timothy Orlando Hunt was born Nov. 5, 1961, and passed away on July 26, 2019.

Mr. Hunt was born in Bogalusa to Thadia Mae Varnado and Janola Walker Sr., both of Bogalusa, who preceded him in passing. Tim was always Thadia Mae’s beloved baby — her youngest of five children. She adored him. Tim has always been known as a dedicated hard worker and was a gifted and talented artist.

Although Tim spent the last five years in Tulsa, Okla., he spent the greater majority of his life in Bogalusa. He would call his siblings, cousins, former wife, Rose Hunt and late brother Leander Hunt his closest and best friends.

He is survived by his siblings, Berta Williams, Donnie Hunt, Willie Douglas Hunt, Paul Walker, Sylvia Knox, Janice Walker, Sharon Lewis, Carolin Bridges, and Janola Walker Jr.; also survived by three girls who he considered special nieces, Shawn Caruthers, Charmaine Robinson, Hope Toliver, Shaundra Gray, Chaska Weary, Calia Walker, Osha Ward; nephews, Matthew Wesley, Janola Walker III, Marquel Oatis, Micah Gray, Micheal Ward, Jr.; and special cousins, Sandra Lusk and Della Cooper.

In one of his final conversations with his eldest niece, he shared, “I enjoyed my life. I lived.” May we all find comfort in this sweet peace.

The family hopes to have a memorial service at a later date.
