(use flag)

Born Feb. 18, 1919, he was the son of Herbert C. and Florine Meek Hunter.

He is survived by his wife, Marjorie Day Hunter, daughters Helen (Patrick) Mills of Colorado Springs, Colo., Mollie Hunter of Miami, Fla., sons Herbert (Julia) Hunter, Greensburg, and Thomas (Lisa) Hunter of Yorktown, Va.. He is also survived by six grandsons and one granddaughter.

He was a veteran of World War II, serving in the Army Air Corps, spending most of the war on Kwajalein Island, part of the Marshall Islands. He continued his service, following the war, in the Air Force Reserve, retiring in 1979, earning the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. For many years, he gave the annual Memorial Day address at South Park Cemetery, as a proud member of our local American Legion Post.

Following graduation from both Indiana University and the Indiana Pharmaceutical College (now Butler University) he joined his father and his brother, Oliver Hunter, in business together as Hunter Pharmacy, in 1957, a staple on the north side of the Greensburg square for many years.

Very community minded, Bill served as a City Councilman-At-Large for 18 years, was a past chairman of the Decatur County Republican party, a member of both the American Legion and the Rotary Club for more than 50 years, a past-president of the Chamber of Commerce, and he served on the organizing committees for the Decatur County Community Foundation and the Big Blue Booster Club.

An elder in the First Presbyterian Church, Bill received the Chamber of Commerce Community Service Award and the Stephen Decatur Society Award from the Decatur County Community Foundation, for his work in the community. Per Bill’s request, his body has been donated to the Anatomical Education Program of Indiana University.
