Rev. Frederick D. Hunt (affectionately known as Donnie), son of the late Bollie Hunt, Jr. and Janie Bell Hunt Gardner was born September 11, 1951, and God in all his infinite wisdom summoned Donnie from labor to reward on Friday night, June 15, 2018.

Donnie graduated from Roberts High School in Holly Hill, SC in 1969; the University of South Carolina in 1974 with dual degrees in Criminal Justice and Religion; and years later after answering his divine call to the ministry, he received a master's Degree in Christian Education from Erskine College.

In 1974, Donnie was joined in holy matrimony with Mamie Jean Hunt-Miller.  He was employed by MacDougall Correctional Institution for many years before becoming employed with The Coastal Center in Ladson, S.C. where he served faithfully in the capacity of Administrative Officer of the Day overseeing the entire Ladson campus until his retirement.

Upon moving to Columbia, S.C., Donnie joined First Calvary Baptist Church where he served as Director of the College Outreach Ministry among other God-directed activities in his church and community.
