James "T-Spoon" Hunter

July 18, 1950 ~ April 10, 2022 (age 71)


James “T-Spoon” Hunter,71, transitioned peacefully from this earthly life to eternal rest early Sunday morning, April 10, 2022, at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital in Norfolk, Virginia. He was born in Sumter County, July 18, 1950, the second oldest son, of the late Wyatt Hunter and Mary Harris Hunter.

James, affectionately called “T-Spoon” by his family and friends, was educated in the public schools of Sumter County. He spent his early years in Washington, D.C. working in the construction industry, but later returned back to South Carolina where his life began. Years later, he developed health problems and moved to Norfolk, Virginia to live with his daughter and her family.

James was a jubilant passionate individual who enjoyed spending time with family and friends, especially his grandchildren. He loved and cherished each and every moment with them. He was also a connoisseur of southern cuisine.  He had a passion for good food and didn’t mind preparing meals for the family.

 In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother Johnny Hunter.

His memory will be cherished by his daughter, Latonya (Jamaine) English of Norfolk, Virginia, and a son, James (Ayesha) Hunter of Sumter, South Carolina; two sisters, Shirley Jefferson of Rembert and Sallie (Roosevelt) Isaac of Dalzell; six brothers, Wyatt Hunter of Washington, D.C., Gene Hunter of Redding, California, Keith Hunter and  George (Deloris) Hunter both of Rembert, Robert (Ernestine) Hunter of Cotton Acres,  and John (Connie) Hunter of Sumter; four grandchildren, Ajayla Hunter of Sumter, Antoinisha (Luke) Wykoff of Springfield, Virginia, Jamaine “Jay” English, Jr. and Nicholas English both of Norfolk, Virginia, along with a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
