Charles Everett "Bud" Hunt

March 5, 1940 — February 18, 2024

Owingsville

Charles Everett “Bud” Hunt left the world for an eternal life free of pain and tears on Sunday, February 18, 2024. He was born in his family’s home on a farm in Peasticks where both the Hunt and Blevins families tenant farmed on March 5, 1940, to Charles “Rube” Hunt and Dorothy Blevins Hunt.

He grew up working on the family farm and at a local grocery store. Like so many of his era, he moved to Marion, Indiana for better work opportunities, where he met “the prettiest girl I’ve ever seen,” Dorothy Bancroft. Bud and Dottie were married on June 29, 1962 and enjoyed nearly 60 years of marriage before her death. They had two children Kim Hunt Price and Charles Keith Hunt.

God, family, work, and community service were the focus of Bud’s life. His mission was to be a provider for those he loved and to help others. After returning to Kentucky, he worked for the State Highway Department and the Bluegrass Army Depot. Later, he and Dottie purchased Bud’s Buster Burger. He enjoyed greeting his customers with that big smile and mentoring the many young people who worked there over the years, many of them became family to him. He also operated a restaurant in Camargo briefly. Later, he began working at Farmers Home Mutual Insurance of Fleming County, where he served on the Board of Directors as President and Vice President. He enjoyed traveling across various counties and meeting new people. In addition, Bud and Dottie had several rental properties. The vocation Bud truly loved was farming, which he never stopped doing from childhood. He raised tobacco, cattle, traded, and was eventually able to purchase the farm on which he was born.

Always supportive of Bath County’s people, he was involved in several organizations. He attended Grace Gospel Tabernacle, where he served as an Elder for over 30 years. He was a Lions Club member for over 40 years working in the concession stand for years and later greeting folks at the gate. He was a founding member of Bath County’s First Disaster and Rescue Crew and a 4-H leader. Bud was actively involved in politics, serving as an election officer, running for office, and always supporting what he believed in. His favorite candidate ever was his daughter, who he encouraged to be involved in politics from an early age. His hobbies were sharing stories with the folks at Copher’s Service Station and driving through the countryside to see how things were growing and changing. Even in later years, he kept up with things by continuing to read The Outlook and family sharing updates from Facebook and their daily lives.

Bud is survived by his daughter, Kim Hunt Price (Buck), three grandchildren, Bryson Keith Price, Charles Hayden Price (Lauren), and Sarah RayAnna Price (Dalton), and one great-grandson, Charles John Robert Price, all of Owingsville, as well as, several nieces, nephews, cousins, and a host of friends.

He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Dottie, his son, Charles Keith Hunt, his granddaughter, Elizabeth Emily Grace Price. Also, his parents and siblings, Ella Marion Clark, Robert "Bob" Hunt, and John Hunt.
