Lorin Irving Hunt, 80, of Chittenango, passed away on May 6, 2019.
He is predeceased by his parents Stuart Hunt and Evelyn Hunt (nee Case) of Central New York; and a brother, Roderick Hunt (Louann), of Oregon. Lorin is survived by several nieces, nephews, cousins, and numerous cherished friends.
A retired high school music teacher, he will be remembered for his zest for life, his laughter, and his love of playing pipe organs. Travel was one of Lorin’s greatest passions which he documented in real-time through detailed and colorful letters and emails to a wide audience of bedazzled followers, always authored with the pen name of “Safari Man”. Lorin ventured to numerous far-flung destinations around the world, and he was thrilled to embark on one last trip to his beloved India in the weeks preceding his death, with a final email sent from the the seaside, along the Bay of Bengal.
At Lorin's request, there will be no formal service or calling hours, but his family encourages personal remembrances among his many friends, both close to home and abroad.
