I just happened to be doing research on the family for a scrapbook, saw where Uncle Argil just passed away. I am so sorry. I always thought that Uncle Argil and daddy (Wayne) favored each other the most. I have very fond memories of Uncle Argil and Hez. Sorry that I can not be there. All my love and prayers to you all...Kathy

Saddened by the loss of uncle Argil, his heart was good and i am sure he found some of us hard to believe. We hadn't been there in a while but always enjoyed his company. May your families find solace within the joy he shared with us and others.

I'm 64 and Argil is/was my dads brother. I spent my whole childhood knowing a warm meal, warm bed, family and fellowship in his home. It was love of family true to the core. He has earned his wings, God be with you.

I spent a lot a of summer vacations with the Hunt family as a "Youngin". When I was older and married we stayed with them when we were in town. No matter what time of day we rolled in Uncle Argil and Aunt Hez always had a place for us. He had the biggest heart and always made us feel welcome. He took such good care of Aunt Hez when her health started to fail. My wife and I visited them in November. It breaks my heart To learn of his passing but I know he's going to a better place. He will be greatly missed. May God Bless and be with the family during this time of sadness.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family for their loss. I pray they remember all he taught them and the honest and caring man he was. The loss we feel is sometimes unbearable, but he is now free from all his suffering. May God be with you all during this time and after. My deepest and sincerest sympathy - Debbie.
