WESTFIELD, IN - Carl Ray Hunt, 44, of Westfield, Indiana, died March 7, 2016 at his home after a six year battle with cancer of the spine and brain. Carl was born on June 18, 1971 in Logan County, Kentucky. He is survived by his beloved wife, soul mate, and best friend, Lisa (Schuessler) Hunt and three daughters- Cassidy A. Hunt of Evansville, IN, Valerie A. Miller, and Heather R. Hunt of Westfield, IN- his beloved doggies Charlie and Jax, his mother Dianne Hunt of Greenville, KY, and two sisters, Crystal (Mike) Russ of Graham, KY and Stephanie (Matt) Shemwell of Bremen, KY and many loved aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, in-laws and friends. Carl was preceded in death by his father, William Ray Hunt.

Carl would like to let you know that his work here on Earth is done. He received the call six years ago, but he was not ready to depart this world yet. He had more work to do, more love to give, more memories to make. After six years, he is finally able to walk again, to go fishing with his dad, and sing the songs he loves.

Carl and I did not get nearly enough time together. But as heartbroken as I am today, I am equally grateful for the time we did have together. Even in these last few days of completely unexpected things – the darkest and saddest moments of my life – I know how lucky I have been. If the day I walked down that aisle with Carl someone had told me that this would happen – that he would be taken from us all in just 15 years after we met– I would still have walked down that aisle. Because the 15 years of being Carl Hunt's wife showed me more love and more happiness than I could have ever imagined. I am grateful for every minute we had. We lived through everything our wedding vows described and loved each other through it all. –

Some of our most wonderful memories include our trips last July to the Kentucky Motor Speedway and Walt Disney World. Carl got to meet Jeff Gordon, his favorite NASCAR driver. Our family trip to Walt Disney World was made possible and shared by Lt Col. David Miller, Sara, Peyton and Justice Miller. Thank you to them and our friends and family for helping us to make and share the most amazing memories.

As we put the love of my life to rest, we will bury only his body. His spirit, his soul, his amazing ability to give is still with us. He loved his time volunteering on the Drakesboro KY Fire Department. Because of his dedication and work for his community, Carl was appointed as an Honorary Deputy Sheriff, Honorary County Judge-Executive and received the highest honor awarded by the State of Kentucky, Kentucky Colonel. His need to help others was always there, even when he lost his ability to walk, he still wanted to help in any way he could. It lives on in the stories people are sharing of how he touched their lives, in the love that is visible in the eyes of our family and friends, in the spirit and resilience of our children. Things will never be the same – but the world is better for the years my beloved husband lived.

He was no war hero. There will be no flag to fold and no 21 gun salute when he is laid to rest. There will be no line of strangers paying their respects. For the fight he fought was not one for his country. His battle was not against some other man, but against a disease that we have yet to win the war against. Those that knew him would agree that he fought harder and stronger than anyone ever thought possible.

I will love you forever, your loving wife and eternal friend, Lisa.
