Paul Wesley Hunt

Paul Wesley Hunt, a long time resident of Cheshire, CT and born in West Haven, CT on December 13, 1940, passed away at the age of 83, on January 16, 2024. He was the son of the late Francis Alfred Hunt and Florence Grace Bailey. 

Paul was a hard-working and honest individual who dedicated his life to serving others. He was a faithful donor to the American Red Cross, with more than 20 gallons donated, a member of the Cheshire Exchange Club, and a strong supporter of JDRF.

Paul is survived by his loving wife, Susan Jill Rice, and their children: James (Amy) of Burlington CT, Kevin (Maureen) of Cheshire CT, Sara of Waterbury CT, and daughter-in-law Carole of Stratford CT. He was a proud grandfather to Laurel, Ashley, Brianna, Katherine, and Emily. Paul is also survived by his sister, Martha (Hunt) Brown of Wallingford CT and his brother, Joel (Eleanor) of Washington. Preceding him in death was his son, Philip.

After graduating from West Haven High School, Paul pursued higher education at UConn. He later served in the US Army. Paul had a successful career as a sales professional, utilizing his natural charisma and communication skills. Outside of work, he enjoyed gardening, playing tennis and golf, and attending sporting events, particularly those of the New York Yankees and UConn basketball.

Services to celebrate Paul’s life will be held at Elim Park‘s Nelson Hall on Saturday, January 27, 2024, at 11 am, 150 Cook Hill Rd, Cheshire. In Lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to JDRF or the Alzheimer’s Association.
