Vern Douglas Hunt was a devoted and loving husband of Mary for 67 years, until her passing almost seven years ago. He was a strong, God fearing man; whose example instilled in his children just what a person of sound moral character should be. Vern was the father of 7 children, 14 grandchildren, and 15 great grandchildren. He was born and raised in Fresno, California, however he met the love of his life, Mary Meighan, in New York as he was on his way to fight the Nazi's during World War II. They married after the war and lived together in New York. After having 2 children they moved to California and raised the rest of their family. Eventually they moved to Clearlake, California, where they spent many happy retired years together, until Mary was called home to be with the Lord.
Vern lived to be 96 years old and was in good health until he too was called home to be with the Lord and to be reunited with the love of his life, Mary. He will be greatly missed by everyone who had the privilege and honor of knowing him. He will always be remembered as the greatest of spouses, fathers, grandfathers, and great grandfathers.
