Brian T.L. Hunt passed away on the evening of May 27, 2015 in the presence of his dear wife Nancy and their supportive friends. After suffering prolonged illness, his leaving this world was peaceful and his wishes were fulfilled to be surrounded by love, laughter, music, and storytelling.
Brian obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree at Otterbein College in 1968, his Masters of Divinity at Andover Newton Theological School in 1971, and completed extensive graduate work at Georgetown University in pursuit of a PhD in Biomedical Ethics. For 15 years, Brian served in various capacities as a United Methodist Minister before he began his career at MedStar Montgomery Medical Center in 1988. He started at MMMC as a part-time chaplain and quickly moved into other roles to include Director of Emergency Preparedness which he performed throughout his years of service. 13 years ago, Brian was given the special opportunity to design and implement the Palliative Care Program at MMMC. This program brought Brian profound challenge and he was hugely satisfied to be a part of such a meaningful approach to patient care.
Brian was born in Canton, Ohio to James and Ruth Hunt on June 26, 1947. He married Nancy Frances Hunt in October of 1994. He was devoted to Nancy and his beloved stepchildren and their families; Joseph Petrucci, his wife, Nicki, and daughter, Belle of Fort Smith, Arkansas; Edward Petrucci, his wife, Kelly, and daughters, Adriana and Gemma of Windsor, Colorado. His previous marriage to Katherine Hunt ended by divorce in 1987. Together they had one son, Brian Nathan Hunt, of Richmond, Virginia.
A Memorial Service will be held for Brian on Monday, June 8 at 4:00 PM at St. Peter's Catholic Church located on 2900 Olney Sandy Spring Road, Olney, MD 20832.
