March 20, 2022, 11, Goldsboro –
Ryan Charles Hunt, 11, was released from the struggles of this life on Sunday, March 20, 2022 at his home. Ryan was born in Wilson County on July 16, 2010 to Lauren and Justin Hunt.
Born with the challenges that come with Cerebral Palsy, Ryan was a determined little boy with a fighting spirit from day one. Though his communication was limited, he was excellent in getting his point across, especially to Mama and Daddy. A kind and loving soul, Ryan was known to be an overall happy guy and the coolest kid in the neighborhood.
As a young child, life for Ryan revolved around Lilo and Stitch. A love for all things Disney, his favorite place happened to be the most magical place on Earth, and he was able to experience a trip to Disney World twice in his short years.
Day-to-day activities for Ryan were those typical for a young boy, as he had a fondness for all superheroes, Star Wars, and gaming. Just as his mama and daddy had instilled, his musical genre of choice was classic rock and roll.
Ryan’s face would light up in the presence of balloons, and red was indeed his favorite color. There was no greater love and devotion for Ryan, however, than that he shared for his parents. Arguing with his Dad was just as fun as hanging out, and cuddle time with his mama was prized time for them both.
The family will receive friends on Thursday, March 24, 2022, from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. at Seymour Funeral Home followed by a service to celebrate Ryan’s life at 7:00 p.m. in the chapel. The family will also greet friends following the service at the funeral home and other times at the family home. A private interment will be held at the Neuse Friends Church Cemetery.
Ryan is survived by his parents, Justin and Lauren Hunt; maternal grandparents, Danny and Jennifer Schneider Kelly and Larry Dail Evans; paternal grandparents, Jesse and Karen Hunt; paternal great-grandparents, Frances W. Kelly and Ann H. Hunt; maternal great-grandparents, Brenda Schneider and Glenda Evans; uncles, Joshua Evans and Logan Kelly; and his beloved dog, Loki.
He was preceded in death by his sister, Madison Rochelle Hunt and his great-grandparents, Steve Worth, Bobby Kelly, Gary Hunt, Wayne Schneider, and Larry Charles Evans.
Services are entrusted in the care of Seymour Funeral Home and Cremation Service. Online condolences can be shared with the family at www.seymourfuneralhome.com.
