Koleton Hunt was born on October 15, 2002. He came into this world bright-eyed and ready to explore this world! He traveled to many places around the world. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, swimming, baseball, theme parks, beaches, and much more! Koleton was a very smart child and brought joy to so many people. He was a great big brother, son, cousin, grandchild, nephew, and friend. In the ten years Koleton was on this earth, he conquered so much more than most people do in a lifetime. Our precious angel will surely be missed but one day we will see his sweet-face again.
