Kevin V. Hunt of Wallkill,  passed away unexpectedly on November 9th, 2023. He was 74. 

The son of Robert & Emma Hunt, he was born July 15, 1949 in Newburgh.

As a young man, Kevin served in the Armed Forces and took great pride in serving his country. He continued his service by joining the Department of Corrections as a Corrections  Officer and retired 27 years later as a Deputy Superintendent for Programs. He owned and operated Hunt Ceramic Tile for over 30 years and also found the time to get involved in politics. Kevin joined the Environmental Commission in the Town of Shawangunk in 1988. He became a Town Councilman in 1990. He rose to Town Supervisor in 1992 which he served for 6 years before serving a term as an Ulster County Legislator. Kevin was currently serving as Town Justice for which he had been for nearly 20 years.

Kevin lived a full life and lived every day according to his motto, “Life is good”. He has a large loving family and many good friends. He had an undeniable zest for life, a tenacious work ethic, and a kind heart. He was heavily invested in his friends, family, and community. He was a dedicated husband, father, and grandfather. Kevin was passionate about his “toys”. He loved his motorcycles and his muscle cars, which he’d been driving, building, and rebuilding since he was a young man. He found contentment in both the menial things in life as well as the finer things; from chopping wood to expensive wine and imported cigars. He really did it all.
