SELKIRK Raymond Roy Hunt, 91, died Monday, July 3, 2006 at the Daughters of Sarah Nursing Home. Raymond was born in Cooksburg, N.Y. to the late LeRoy and Elizabeth Haskins Hunt on September 2, 1914. He attended Greenville High School and lived in Oak Hill for several years. In 1940, he married Emma Peck and they resided in Coeymans Hollow for several years. Raymond was a truck driver most of his life except for a few years while he spent working at G.E. in Schenectady during World War II. He later went back to driving trucks and retired in 1973 from Main Bros. Oil Co. after suffering a severe case of frostbit. Ray enjoyed working outside in his garden and was very proud of his lawn, keeping it watered well in dry weather. He raised his own plants and at one time raised pansies for sale. That proved to be a back breaking chore so he gave it up. Ray is survived by his wife of 66 years, Emma; daughters, Janet Chiorgno of Pittsfield, Mass. and Christine B. Hunt of Albany; son, Les R. (Wendy) Hunt of Selkirk; four grandchildren, Michele (Dan) Foster of Watervliet, Stephan Hunt of Freehold, Krysta (Ben) Domery-Rogers of Glenmont and Tiffany Hunt of Saratoga. Also survived by five great-grandchildren. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his beloved son, Eugene R. Hunt; grandson, David J. Hunt; brother, Leland Hunt; sisters, Marjorie Baitsholts and Evelyn Hunt. Funeral services will be held 11 a.m. Friday, July 7 at the Babcock Funeral Home, Ravena. Friends may call at the funeral home before the funeral starting at 10:00 a.m. Burial will follow in Chestnut Lawn Cemetery. Contributions, in memory of Raymond, may be made to the Trinity United Methodist Church, 1311 Rte. 143, Coeymans Hollow, NY 12046.
