Fred Hunt

Our friend Fred Hunt passed away yesterday, he was 86. He lived in Lake Worth with AnnaMaria Windisch-Hunt, his wife, our friend of many years.

You all remember them, I'm sure, they really made the Grove a lively place. For a time, the Windisch-Hunt Art Gallery on Grand Avenue was the center of all Grove things it seemed, from all the art events and classes and fashion shows and all sorts of fun things, it really was the place to be. Fred could be seen painting in the front window almost daily. It was such a great thing to be able to watch a master painter at work right there in front of you.

My condolences.

We will miss Fred. He was a great man and a great artist. It's possible that I have never met more of a gentleman than he.

I took him for several boat rides to get his circulation going, he would yell and scream with joy, like a little baby or child at dolphins, pelicans or when a splash from the bow hit his face. Jobie
