Marston Clyde Hunte, 82, of Beverly Hills, Florida, passed away at home under the loving care of his wife on March 22, 2018. He was born on September 26, 1935, in Elizabeth, New Jersey, an inseparable twin of Ronald Bruce Hunte. He was a resident of Roselle Park, Manasquan and Cranford, New Jersey. He graduated from Roselle Park High School, and while playing baseball in his senior year, he pitched a shutout. He was a diehard Yankees fan, and spent every night in his comfy chair, watching baseball with his brother on the phone, even if it wasn't the Yanks.
He and his twin brother served our country in the Army as Military Police in Germany for three years. After his service, he graduated from Delaware Valley University with a BS Degree in Horticulture.
Clyde married June Rose Hare at the start of his sophomore year of college in 1959 and resided in Doylestown, Pennsylvania for the remainder of school. After college, he went to work for USDA Plant Protection and Quarantine Division in Port Newark, New Jersey, for 36 years.
While living in New Jersey, he played basketball, read western novels, square danced, followed high school wrestling, and was an Elder for Osceola Presbyterian Church.
In June 1999, Clyde and June retired to Beverly Hills, Florida. While retired, his hobbies included horseshoes, gardening, editing our local paper and bowling, achieving a
300 score in the Summer League.
For many years, Clyde was a member of Community Congregational Christian Church in Citrus Springs, Florida. He served as President of the Trustees and sang in the Choir. He volunteered faithfully every Monday at Citrus United Basket (CUB) for eight years.
He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Robert Clifton Hunte. Survivors include his wife of 58 years, June Hunte, of Beverly Hills, Florida, children, David (Teresa) Hunte and Dawn (Robert) Titus, his twin brother, Ronald Hunte, and grandson, Andrew Jordan Hunte.
A Celebration of Life will take place on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at 11 a.m. at Community Congregational Christian Church, 9220 N. Citrus Springs Boulevard, Citrus Springs, Florida 34433.
