Millard Dwight Hunt, 75, went home to heaven on Jesus’ birthday, December 25, 2018.
Dwight was born in Washington County, TN to Beryl Campbell Hunt and Mabel Wilson Hunt. He spent his formative years helping out with the family dairy farm in the Fairview community. He attended Jonesboro High School and graduated the University of Tennessee in 1967.
Dwight was the proud owner and broker of Volunteer Realty and Auction Company for 50 years. He loved the excitement of putting together a big real estate deal but got even more satisfaction from sharing his love for his Savior with everyone he met.
Mr. Hunt was very active in Greenwood United Methodist Church, where he served as a Sunday school teacher and assisted with Wednesday night bible study. Dwight was also part of the Emmaus community. He was passionate about helping others and always had a listening ear.
Dwight was an avid reader, animal lover and adventure seeker. His children and grandchildren cherished their time playing with him in the Nolichucky River. He was loved so very much and will be greatly missed!
He was preceded in death by his parents and infant daughter, Teresa Jane Hunt.
He is survived by his brother, Beryl Hunt Junior and wife Glenna; children Robin Hunt Adams and husband Rob, Troy Dwight Hunt, Chad Dustin Hunt, and Justin Isaac Hunt and wife Jamie; eight grandchildren Lauren Paige Hunt, Taylor Jade Hunt, Jalyn La’Rae Hunt, Jacob Isaac Hunt, Abraham Owen Adams, Samuel Millard Adams, Elisha Michael Adams, and Judah Campbell Adams; five great grandchildren, one niece and several cousins.
Funeral services will be conducted 6:30 pm Sunday, December 30, 2018 at Dillow-Taylor Funeral Home with Pastor Rick Ballard officiating. The family will receive friends from 4:00-6:30 pm Sunday prior to the service.
Interment services will be conducted 12:00 pm Monday, December 31, 2018 at Fairview Cemetery.
Pallbearers will be family & friends.

|Robin, Troy, Chad and Justin,
I’m so very sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. Many of my
best memories during formative years, involved him and your
family. I’ll always remember our basketball games in the
driveway, in the gyms, the trip to Jackson TN, time shared with
his mom and dad, and all the times spent with the Hunt’s. I’d
be happy to share some of my best memories with you all. He
was one of a kind! I did love him and I’m thinking of you all.
||Jim and Velma Anderson
|Our hearts are broken. Dwight and Jim have been friends since childhood. After graduating from high school, they hitch-hiked across the United States to see the world, a trip that greatly enhanced their lives. I worked with Dwight in real estate about 50 years ago and while there he introduced me to Jim. We've been married for 49 years. We send our condolences to the family during this difficult time.|
|I was shocked to read in the paper today that
Dwight had passed away on Christmas day. He was a
wonderful person with a giant heart and he was the
most Christian man that I had the privilege to
know. I know that his family will deeply miss him.
He certainly was the patriarch of the Hunt
family.Sending love and prayers to you. |
|I am still in disbelief that we will not see Dwight Sunday
mornings and at every function our church held. I know that he
is with our Lord and wearing a crown of glory. My prayers for
healing of his family and friends. We can not question God,
only accept His will, and ask for strength. God bless all
