on Wednesday, April 7, 2010 at approximately 6:10 p.m. Eric's bike
struck by a MBTA commuter bus. He was killed instantly.
We recieved the following from Eric's father, Thomas
Eric Michael Hunt, age 22, and the sunshine of his father's life,was taken from
us on Wednesday, April 7, 2010.
Today, the world is both a sadder and a lessor place.
In accordance with Eric's written wishes skin tissue from his thighs and calves were removed to be used in reconstructive surgery for children afflicted
with cleft palate. Every time I see a yound child running in a playground or flying down the sidelines in a soccer game I will be sustained by the thought that perhaps
Eric played some role in that child's beautiful smile.
Eric Hunt was the singular most caring, unselfish and loving person anyone could possibly ever meet.
I know; I'm his father.
