Thomas O'd. Hunter


1932 - 2017 Obituary Condolences
Hunter, Thomas O'D.
Thomas O'Driscoll Hunter died peacefully in his home in Rowayton, Connecticut, on December 27, 2017. Born in Savannah, Georgia, in 1932, he led a creative and adventurous life. He graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in Art and proudly served as a Captain in the United States Marine Corps. In the late '50s, he embarked on an exciting career as an actor, which led to a ten-year residence in Italy and a number of starring roles in "spaghetti westerns" and other movies shot around the world. In Rome, he formed his own theater company and co-wrote the screenplays for the films "The Human Factor" and "The Final Countdown." Upon returning to the United States, he wrote and directed plays, ran theater workshops, and published a novel, "Softly Walks the Beast," and an autobiography, "Memoirs of a Spaghetti Cowboy: Oddball Tales of Luck and Derring-Do."
Tom was an avid tennis player, cartoonist, storyteller, song writer, and film lover. He even designed two energy-efficient homes for his family.
With his kindness, humor, imagination, and love, he transformed friends and family, including his wife Isabelle Hunter, daughters Kaki Hunter and Georgia Farinholt, sister Susan Hunter, many nieces and nephews, and grandsons Boody Springer, and Wyatt and Ransom Farinholt.
