Obituary

SCOTT E. HUNT
January 30, 1946 – May 27, 2021
Cornwall-On-Hudson, NY

Born in Susanville, California in 1946, Scott Edwin Hunt was the younger of two children of Roy and Myra Hunt; sister Claudia. Scott spent his childhood in the Sierra Nevada’s near his grandparents’ cattle ranch. Surrounded by majestic mountains and panoramic vistas, Scott fell in love with mother nature and all of her grandeur. His years on the ranch would be forever ingrained in his soul and he would often tell ranch tales and speak of its beauty.

Scott’s parents instilled in him a strong work ethic for academics, work, and sports.
He inherited his father’s love of baseball, which he played throughout college, and his mother’s love of family, which instilled in him the credo that he passed on throughout his days: “love of family is the essence of life.”

Scott’s family ended up in Arcata, California, where he would spend his teenage years and graduate from Arcata High School. He spent a year at the South Dakota School of Mines, transferred to Humboldt State, and the following year enrolled in the University of California Davis where he enlisted in ROTC and continued to play baseball. After graduating with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, Scott reported to Fort Lewis ready to serve his country, only to be honorably discharged due to an injury.

Fresh out of college, Scott was hired by General Electric as an Application Engineer. The company eventually sent him from Long Beach, California, to Phoenix, Arizona, to Schenectady, New York; the latter of which led him on an epic cross-country road trip that culminated in a Northeast blizzard.

Scott joined a rugby team once he settled in New York. It was at a rugby party in 1970 where he spotted Carole Clark from across the room. Scott and Carole began dating and, due to Scott’s love of history, their first date was at Saratoga Battlefield. They married on August 18th, 1973 in Lake George, New York, amid the natural beauty of the Adirondacks.

In 1978, Scott and Carole moved their family to Cornwall-on-Hudson where they would spend the next 43 years. Four children soon followed. Scott was the ultimate provider and family man. He was a beloved coach of youth teams that he coached for 20 years, becoming an inspirational mentor among the youth in his community.

Scott received his Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology and continued his career in engineering for 30 years. From St. Regis Paper Company to Champion International, Scott held several engineering management positions in the Process Control Department. He was later promoted to Director of Manufacturing Control Systems at the corporate headquarters in Stamford, CT where he helped develop major process control projects and often traveled to industry-wide conferences presenting his findings.

After retirement, Scott was inspired to teach AP level math classes at Storm King School. He continued his love of sports there by coaching both the boys and girls soccer teams. Scott loved teaching and coaching so much, he remained there for 12 years.

As Scott’s children grew older, he enjoyed traveling around the country to visit them in Colorado, California, Massachusetts, Hawaii, Alaska, and Washington State. Five grandchildren arrived within three-years’ time and Scott reveled in their playfulness. Many of Scott’s passions were often surrounded by nature and sport. He loved fly-fishing, hiking, being out in his rowing shell on Lake George, and attending professional baseball and hockey games with his kids.

Nothing was dearer to Scott than his family. He is survived by his wife Carole of almost 48 years and their children Kevin (wife Ann), Lanie (husband Russ), Kyle (wife Ashley), Darren, and five grandchildren: Tessa, Braydon, Molly, Hudson, and Caleb. As the patriarch, he enjoyed family gatherings and especially sharing laughs. His family will miss him dearly and will cherish his legacy always.

Based on new CDC guidelines adopted by NYS, fully vaccinated individuals do not need to wear masks or be socially distanced, but unvaccinated individuals must continue to wear masks and be socially distanced in the funeral home.

Visitation Hours will be held on Friday, June 4th from 4 pm-6 pm at the Quigley Sullivan Funeral Home, 337 Hudson Street, Cornwall-on-Hudson, NY. A Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, June 5th at 1 pm at the Cornwall United Methodist Church, 198 Main Street, Cornwall, NY.

Kate and I are so saddened to hear of Scott’s passing but so comforted by the fact that we knew him over the last 15 years Scott was a mentor to me and a listener when I needed it the most even though he thought I was always listening to him. This news just reinforces what Scott always used to say, “that life is not fair”. But with a smile on his face I can say, Scott, you will remain eternally handsome. Your friend, Jim
