My name is Tony Lee Roy Hunt, I am a college student at the University of Phoenix, Military Division with a 3.82GPA and 44 credits. My father's name was Roy Phillip Hunt, he died in Barvard County, Florida in 1986 saving 2 children in a drowning accident. I have a brother named Phillip Preston Lee Hunt, and a sister named Koreeda Christine Hunt. My father's relatives are a mystery because my mother, Sondra Lee Hunt, refused to speak of my father in a kind or respectful way. My email is or if any information is available.
