Francis had 4 great loves in his life, Diana Sawyer, his heart.  His three beautiful children, Francis James Hunt JR, Jazmine Anaiya Hunt & Lovely Ann Hunt.      He never missed a practice be it for football or ballet….he was the girl’s rock.  Saturdays were breakfast made by dad & cartoons and an occasional dance off in the living room.
