DeWayne Otis Hunter passed away Sept. 28, 2017 at his home with his family at his side. He was born Aug. 8, 1939 to the late Otis and Thelma (Smith) Hunter in Harbor Beach.
DeWayne honorably served his country in the U.S. Air Force for 20 years.
While serving his country DeWayne met and married Clara Brogdon, of Camden, South Carolina, where he was stationed. They raised two sons, DeWayne E. (Debra), of Williamsburg, and Glenn O. (Bobbie Jo Comai), of Kalkaska, all of whom survive him.
In addition to his wife, Clara, and his sons, DeWayne is survived by his grandchildren, Logan and Bryce Hunter and Michael Anderson. He is also survived by his brother, David Hunter, of West Monroe, Louisiana; his sisters, Charlotte (Steve) Sias, of Spokane, Washington, and Phyliss Wing, of Gaylord; brother-in-law, David Wing; and sisters-in-law, Gloria Hunter, of Port Huron, and Catherine Hunter, of Grayling.
In addition to his parents, DeWayne was preceded in death by his siblings, Arline (Jack) Woodworth, Dale Hunter, Ralph (Lucille) Hunter and William Hunter; and nephew, Daniel Otis Hunter.
DeWayne's family all agree that his work and his grandchildren were his two hobbies in life. He was very proud of his service in the Air Force and his work on spy planes involving security clearance.
