Charles  Hunt
Charles "Hoyt" Hunt was born July 3, 1927 and passed away peacefully at home on Sept 23, 2019 surrounded by his wife of 63 years, Nina, and daughter Cathy.
Hoyt was the son of Charlie and Alma Hunt of Crane Hill, Alabama. He was predeceased by his parents, and his beloved son, Keith Hunt.
He is survived by his loving wife, Nina Smith Hunt; daughter, Cathy Ann Hunt; sister, Brenda (George) Scott; in-laws, David and Sue Smith and Lucynda Smith; and several nieces and nephews.
At the age of 17, while in high school, Hoyt volunteered to serve in the United Sates Navy for War World II when it was thought Germany would attack. Hoyt was eventually deployed off the coast of Sasebo, Japan. While attending University of North Alabama, he was called to serve again in the Korean Conflict. Upon returning, Hoyt received his BS from UNA and returned to Crane Hill where he taught 6th grade at Dowling Jr. High School for a year.
In 1953, he left teaching and began a life of service with the Boy Scouts of America. Initially, he served as a District Executive. Soon after he was promoted to field director in Huntsville, Alabama. Working his way up, he served as Scout Executive in Ft. Smith, Arkansas, Chattanooga, Tennessee, and New Orleans, Louisiana. Hoyt was promoted to Director of Finance in the National office in Brunswick, NJ. As the Director of Finance, Hoyt developed strategies, policies, procedures, and processes for fundraising activities for the entire country. Many of which are still in use today. Hoyt's final position with the Boy Scouts of America was Director of the Southeast region based in Atlanta, Georgia. His 39 years of service with the Boy Scouts of American had a great impact and positive influence on many people around the country.
After retirement in 1982, many of Hoyt's business relationships and friends revolved around and through his love for golf. His golfing partners, club friends and connections in Scouting gave him access and opportunity to play some of the greatest golf courses in the world. He maintained his membership in the Crane Hill Masonic Lodge and later Trimble Lodge for over 50 years.
A memorial service will be held in the chapel at Mt. Bethel United Methodist Church, 4385 Lower Roswell Road, Marietta, GA, on Friday October 11, 2019 at 1 p.m. The family will receive guests starting at 12:30 p.m. in the connector outside the Sanctuary. A graveside service with full military honors will be held at the Georgia National Cemetery at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in memory of "Hoyt Hunt" for the benefit of Boy Scout troop 1011 at Mt. Bethel United Methodist Church, or to Mt. Bethel United Methodist Church.
