Mike Hundley was born in Boonville, July 12, 1953, the son of Walter Richard Hundley Jr. and Norma Allen Hundley. Mike had worked in Boonville until health problems had disabled him. Mike had been on kidney dialysis for many years and had had two kidney transplants. He accepted his situation realistically and with courage and an unbelievable toughness. He never complained, lived life to the fullest, never met a stranger, and made friends wherever he went. Mike enjoyed attending local sporting events where he seemed, always to meet even more people and make more friends.
Mr. Hundley was preceded in death by his parents and one infant daughter, Kristina. Mike is survived by his children, Travis (Wendy) Hundley of New Franklin, MO, Michelle (Wayne) Bishop, Jason (Missy) Hundley and Karissa McCoy, all of Boonville. His siblings, Larry (Donna) Hundley of Boonville, Margaret (Dennis) Ridgewell of New Franklin, Sharon Spoor, Beverly (David) Purvis and Peggy Jobe, all of Boonville, as well as thirteen grandchildren, also survive.
