Life Story / Obituary


Hunter, Mr

James "Jimmy" Samuel


James "Jimmy" Samuel Hunter, age 49, passed away Monday, December 10, 2018. He was born in Muskegon, MI, on August 20, 1969, to Paul & Janet (Schockett) Hunter and graduated from Mona Shores High School. He married the former Julie Ginman on October 14, 1995. Jimmy was an Owner and Financial Manager for West Shore Medical and had been a Realtor for Chrystal-Anderson. Jimmy was a member of Temple B'Nai Israel, Muskegon Jaycees where he did numerous events for the Child Abuse Counsel and Mona Lake Boating Club. He loved cars, Mona Shores Football, NASCAR, reality tv, (especially Live PD) and music. In recent years he became a fan of country music much to our surprise! Most of all, Jimmy loved being with his family, especially his wife Julie! Jimmy was most proud in his life of his two children Gavin Paul and Aleigha Rose. Jimmy had a huge family and extended family in which he loved being with and we loved being with him! As most of you reading this already know, Jimmy had quite the sense of humor and was a very funny and very smart guy. When Jimmy walked into a room he lit it up with his humor, quick wit, funny stories, his smile and his amazing blue eyes! He had a way of making everyone feel comfortable and at ease.


Wife and the love of his life of 23 years, Julie; son, Gavin Hunter; daughter, Aleigha Hunter; parents, Janet & Paul "Skip" Hunter; sisters, Robin (Spiro) Michals, Jennifer (Kim Hunt) Hunter, Kelly (Brent) Farrington, Katie Hunter, Jillian Hunter; aunts & uncles, Barbara Reed, Nancy (Butch) Nelson, Alan Hunter; mother-in-law, Willy Ginman; brothers & sisters-in-law, Bill Ginman, Scott (Cristi) Ginman, Elaine (Joe) O'Connor, Tom Ginman, Chuck (Kate) Ginman, Robert Ginman, Karen (Thomas Knowlton) Ginman; Jimmy had many, many nieces & nephews. We would list them all, but to date there are 25 and it would take up the whole paper! In addition to his family, he had so, so many friends. There are too many to list but you know who you are. We would like to mention Jimmy’s best friend Doug Keller of over 20 plus years! Their friendship meant the world to him.


Saturday, December 22, 2018, 4:00 PM at Temple B'Nai Israel with Rabbi Alan Alpert officiating. Reception immediately following. MEMORIAL: In lieu of flowers, please consider giving to the Child Abuse Council or Temple B'Nai Israel. Please visit to leave a memory or sign the online guestbook.

Jimmy will be thought of and missed every single day of our lives. As your family and friends move forward know that you will always be in our hearts and life won’t be the same without you! This is one of the greatest losses in all of our lives. We hope there is McDonald’s, iPhones, Words With Friends and Diet Cokes in heaven:) JIMMY, WE LOVE AND MISS YOU SO MUCH!
