Officer Hunt was my grandfather that I never got to meet. My father,Leonard Hunt was only 9 years old when his father was killed. I just happened upon this page while looking for information about my grandfather and am touched to know that people that never knew him have written to show their respect for his sacrifice .
On this Memorial Day weekend I am remembering all those men and women that have sacrificed so much to keep us safe.
With greatest respect,
Ann Hunt Schulte

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 94th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Laslater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace

It always saddens me to come here and see an officer w/ no reflections. I know you were murdered in 1918 and that is quite a long time ago, but here today in 2004 I want to say that your life meant something and that I thank you for trying to protect the streets and people of Akron back in 1918. I don't know if the person who murdered you was ever caught, but I hope so. The method in which you and Officer Costigan were murdered was cowardly and cold-blooded. God Bless you, Officer Hunt.

With respect and admiration,
