Bob also founded Live Oak Nutrition in Southport, NC working with his oldest son Rob. In addition to his love of trade shows, Bob had a great love and appreciation for music. He played in several area bands in the 60’s and 70’s. Golf was one of his favorite pastimes especially when he was playing with his two sons and his lifelong friend John Lane at Sunset Beach, NC, where he and Janice had a home. One of Bob’s hobbies was to spend time on his boat, Done Talkin’. Bob’s great faith and trust in God helped to guide his life’s journey. He loved sharing his faith and people saw that in him. He was a great friend, loving father and devoted husband. Playing with his grandpuppy “Ellie” brought Bob joy. In addition to his wife Janice Benner Hunt, Bob is survived by his son Robert C. Hunt, III and his wife Angela Beeson Hunt and son Russell Jeffrey Hunt and his wife Binh Tran Hunt.
