Obituary

Thomas Andrew Hunt, age 66 of Clarksburg, WV passed away on Monday, April 15, 2019 at the United Hospital Center in Bridgeport, WV. He was born on September 30, 1952, in Clarksburg, WV, the son of the late Rex Hunt and Marian Hunt, who survives in Clarksburg, WV.

Also surviving are one brother, James C. Hunt and wife, Pam of Clarksburg, WV, two sisters, Dianne Lau of Fairmont, WV and Mary Hunt of Clarksburg, WV. Niece, Sarah Elizabeth Sellhorst and husband Matt of Lancaster, SC, Nephew, Jason Bartlett and wife Stacie of Clarksburg, WV, Niece, Anne Marie Emswiler and husband, Shane of Gibsonia, PA and Nephew, Andrew Lau of Fairmont, WV. Great nieces, Ali Bartlett, Avery Sellhorst, Emery Sellhorst, Lexie Emswiler, Allie Emswiller and Izzy Emswiler. Great nephews, Caleb Emswiler and Noah Emswiler.

Tom learned as a young adult that he had a rare condition known as Neurofibromatosis. Rather than let this condition define his life, he embraced each challenge and underwent a multitude of operations and treatments to deal with the escalating pain and physical limitations impacting his body. He graduated from Notre Dame High School with the class of 1970 and later attended the West Virginia Rehabilitation Center in Institute, WV, earning a certificate in commercial laundry. He worked for Mountain State Linen Service in Clarksburg, WV and Ziebart Rustproofing Company in Clarksburg, WV until his condition limited his ability to walk. He outfitted his pickup truck with hand controls and continued to drive until that was not possible. He was appointed to the Clarksburg Parking Authority and served over two decades. He was proud to be a part of the Jackson Square Parking facility which is fully handicapped accessible. When he could not attend meetings in person, Tom became one of the first public officials in West Virginia to attend meetings by phone and paved the way for regulations that allowed many more people to participate in government meetings.

Tom was a kind soul and touched thousands of people throughout his life. His email list consisted of dozens of friends and family who would regularly receive one of his jokes or sweepstakes entries. He loved having his great nieces perched on his lap as he rode them around the yard in his wheelchair. Tom’s faith sustained him throughout his life, and he read scripture each day with his mother.

Tom considered his caregivers as part of his family and we are indebted to Tina, Alice, Lexxie, Lisa, Betty and Trista for their loving care over the years for our son and brother. We also appreciate Dr. Michael Angotti and countless other medical professionals who provided Tom with compassionate care for many years.

In lieu of flowers, we ask that you honor Tom’s memory by offering support to organizations that work to build a more accessible world. Tom bravely dealt with pain and physical limitations and was overjoyed when he was able to travel and enjoy events and outdoor activities.

Family and friends will be received at the Davis-Weaver Funeral Home 329 E. Main Street Clarksburg, WV, on Thursday, April 18, 2019 from 2 until 8pm. Funeral services will be conducted at the funeral home on Friday, April 19, 2019 at 10am. Interment will follow at the Holy Cross Cemetery.

We were privileged to have met Tom and his family. We had some good times of talking about God and life. What a blessing to know that God tells us those who have trusted Jesus as their Saviour will be present with God when absent from the body. (II Corinthians 5:8). Tom is now pain free (Revelation 21:3-4). We are praying for you Marian, Diane and the entire family during this difficult time of loss of your loved one. Mark and Donna Kuenzi

We had a lot of them but the most important one was when he aloud me to be a part of his life and being his friend. I thank God for bringing him into my life. I'll miss you my friend. I also thank his family for their friendship may God always be with you.
