Russell C. Hunter, a devoted husband and father, died on August 14 in Foley, Alabama, his residence for the past 12 years.

Mr. Hunter was born in Virden, Illinois. He enlisted in the Army during World War II, and was stationed at Camp Upton, in Westhampton, before leaving for Europe.

It was at Eastport’s Sunrise Inn, owned and operated by Theodor & Mary Sirko, that he met and eloped with Sophie Sirko, his one true love and wife of 61 years, who predeceased him on May 8. They lived in Eastport for over 40 years and were active members of the East Moriches Methodist Church before moving to Alabama shortly after his retirement from Hendrickson Brothers Construction Company.

Mr. Hunter is survived by a son, Stanley Hunter of Eastport, N.Y.; daughter, Elaine Glen of Riverhead; two granddaughters; two great-grandchildren, and numerous nephews and nieces.

A brief service will be held next Monday, at 1 p.m. at the Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Center Moriches, NY. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the East Moriches Methodist Church, PO Box 546, East Moriches, N.Y
