Longtime volunteer Roger Hunt dies

Longtime local volunteer Roger Hunt died Sunday. He was 73.

Hunt actively served with local nonprofit groups such as the Federal Way Rotary and FUSION. He was a familiar face at charity events and activities year-round.

Hunt was born Sept. 2, 1944. He and his wife, Gloria, grew up in Oregon and attended the University of Oregon. They both went on to retire from successful careers with the Weyerhaeuser Company.

Rather than having a memorial service, Hunt’s family is hosting a “Recognition of Service” to celebrate his life. The gathering will be held 1-4 p.m. Sunday, April 22, at the Foss Waterway Seaport, 705 Dock St., Tacoma. All are welcome to attend.

For those who wish to honor Roger Hunt’s life with a memoriam, the family suggests donating to the Federal Way Rotary Scholarship Fund and/or FUSION in lieu of flowers.
