My sympathies to the Hunt family. Chuck was a wonderful colleague, friend, educator and human being. I enjoyed and appreciated his friendship, insight, and advice while working with him at Lexington HS.
A former colleague and golfing buddy. Will miss you old friend. RIP
My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I had Mr. Hunt at LHS from 1971-1975. A real gentleman and fortunate to have met him. Until we meet again Mr. Hunt

So sorry to hear about Charlie. We enjoyed our little chats around the pool at BSM. We will miss him. You are in our hearts Barbara, at this sad time.
Words can't begin to express how much we will miss Charlie around Harbor Towers! He always had a kind word for everyone and despite his health issues was always upbeat! As I type this I can hear his gravelly Boston accented voice in my head... We just loved him!
