This is a Permanent Memorial In Memory Of Our Dear Friend,
"Papa" Joe Hunter
November 19, 1927 February 2, 2007


"Papa" Joe Hunter - Rest In Peace
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Mixey called me on that February day to inform me of very sad news
that was being reported that Funk Brother - "Papa" Joe Hunter had passed away today. He was 79 years old.

Sobering. Another wonderful, musical talent, and great human being is now gone.

My engineering path has crossed Joe Hunter's path twice in this lifetime, on two significant projects, one being "Standing In The Shadows Of Motown" in 1989/90...
and again with all of us together from "The Masters Of Funk Soul And Blues" cutting tracks together in Detroit in 2006 on "A Soulful Tale Of Two Cities".
Bottom line, Joe Hunter was good people, and everybody loved him.



From all of us that have ever had the great pleasure of working with and making music with this wonderful man... Papa Joe Hunter, we will all miss You.



Your Kindness, Your Friendship, Your Humor, Your Music and Your Legend will live on in the world, and remain deeply embedded in our hearts.
Rest In Peace, Joe.

Wishing Sincere Condolences to Joe Hunter's Family, Friends and Loved Ones.

Gene Leone
