“He was a kind soul,” Joe Rufo, a friend of Hunt, said. “He was a kind, wonderful human being, wonderful father. Never had a bad word to say about anybody. He was as good as gold and I’m really going to miss him. I know his family is going to miss him and they’re devastated right now.

“It’s mind boggling because he’s not confrontational,” he added. “He really is not a confrontational guy, so for something like this to happen, it really blows me away.”
