Paul was born southwest of Hastings to David Lee and Mazie Whitaker Hunt. He attended school in Hastings. He married his high school sweetheart Gladys Vernell Hardy in 1943.

He and Nell moved to Comanche, where they enjoyed life on the family farm.

Paul loved his family, his church and Lord and served them all well.  He and Nell taught Sunday school for many years and touched many lives of the young people in the area. He will always be remembered for his catchy sayings, warm smile and generous nature. He enjoyed hunting, raising livestock and spending time with his neighbors. He had a green thumb and grafted many of the pecan trees that are currently on the family farm.

Bragg, N.C.; sister-in-law Pauline Brokaw of San Bernardino, Calif.; sister-in-law Theda Soldani of Tulsa. He will be missed by many relatives, neighbors and friends who were all dear to him.

He was preceded in death by his parents, three brothers, Joe Hunt and wife Lois of Lawton, Brinkley Hunt and wife Billie of Chickasha and Clarence Hunt and wife Opal of Duncan; one sister Edith Morgan and husband Clifford "Demp" of Comanche, and daughter-in-law Debbie Hunt of Norman.
