We send our deepest respect and condolences to the family of Reverend Harold Hunt. He passed away this week. Reverend Hunt had the vision to establish a Veterans Office within the Lumbee Tribe of N.C., and along with Larry Townsend and Chairman James “Jimmy” Goins, Hunt was instrumental in drafting legislation to begin the Lumbee Tribe Veterans Service Office. The office opened in 2004 with Reverend Hunt as the first director. He was also a key Veteran who helped to start the Lumbee Warriors Association. He served more than 30 years of his life in service to Veterans. Reverend Hunt was a recipient of the Purple Heart, as a result of injuries he received in Vietnam. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. Rev. Hunt was a member of the Lumbee Tribe of N.C.
Harold Hunt, age 73, departed this life January 31, 2023. He was born July 14, 1949 in Red Springs, NC to the late Jannie Jacobs Hunt and Saul Hunt.
He is survived by his wife Carol A. Hunt. Together they have 5 children and 11 grandchildren. Siblings Larry Hunt (Carolyn Hunt) of Red Springs, Shelia Brayboy (Gene Brayboy) of Lumberton, Harmon Hunt of Lumberton, Miranda Hammonds (TR Hammonds) of Pembroke, Jeff Hunt of Fayetteville, Ledger Hunt of Red Springs.

His favorite things in life were God, family, church, and his community. He loved assisting any fellow veteran and being involved with his Native American culture. He obtained multiple degrees and certifications throughout his life. He was truly a jack of all trades. Rev. Hunt was also a member of NRA (National Rifle Association). He was a true farm boy at heart.
