Robert F. Hunter Sr. began his life as a farm boy in Ohio. He ended his life as an elder statesman in the Fundamental Baptist Fellowship Association. In between, he blazed a trail for racial reconciliation within fundamental-evangelical circles, planted a church in Decatur, Illinois; assisted with another church plant in Waukegan, Illinois; served as the executive director of the FBFA; and served as a member of the board of directors of Carver Baptist Bible College. He did all of this in a dignified manner, standing out as an example of a true man of God, wholly committed to the Lord, a giant in faith and trust.
Hunter lived his life as a modern Caleb who ôwholly followed the Lord.ö He never wavered from that call.
