Obituary – Wymon L. Hunt (1940 – 2020)


Waymon Lee Hunt went to be with his Lord and Savior, Sunday November 29th, 2020 in Fort Smith Arkansas. Waymon was born on August 7, 1940 to Noah Samuel Hunt and Retha Cora Stinson, in Cedar Creek Arkansas.

Waymon (Papa) was loved and cherished by all who knew him. There is no question of his love for the Lord or his desire for ALL to know the Lord and love Him as he did. He loved and cherished his wife Janella of 46 years, his 9 children, 19 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren, his church family and multitude of friends and extended family.

Waymon retired from the phone company in Waldron Arkansas after thirty years of service and later self-contracted for another 15 years. Waymon was a Sunday School teacher for over 60 years, teaching and inspiring hundreds of children and adults. He was an ordained minister for 40 years.

Waymon’s primary goal was to let you know the saving grace and gift of God’s love and salvation. He loved to hunt and spent a lot of time walking the mountains, he knew these woods like the back of his hand. His grandchildren have many found memories of him, the sleep overs, waking up to Papa’s famous biscuits and oatmeal, going for rides in the woods, fishing, and hunting.

If you knew Waymon Lee Hunt you loved him and you knew where he stood with the Lord. He will be forever loved, cherished, and missed. Comfort comes from knowing he will be waiting for us in that great city. To quote his dear friend and brother, “Dr. Stanley Wiggins, he has simply moved to a new city and has a new address, when we get there he will be waiting”.
