Conway was more than just muscles, tattoos, and a red Hellcat. Conway was a loving husband, father, son, and brother. And if he liked you, you knew he liked you. He never sugar coated anything.
Conway had a rage for vehicles. He may have easily spent more hours at car lots than he did at most other places. He was often found perusing cars for sell, even though he had no intentions of buying a new one (he only wished he could). He was fortunate enough to have owned his dream car, a beautiful hooker red and black Dodge Challenger Hellcat. He loved that car almost more than anything. He even tattooed the Hellcat and Demon emblems on each of his elbows. There were only a few people that he allowed, and trusted, to drive that car, his wife, his dad and his brother. As his wife always said, he had an alter personality-his “Hellcat personality” when he drove that car. She said he was like a young teen revving the engine, looking for a race and a reason to open the pipes. He loved the car’s hum and the power it had, even though he only “lightly” ever pressed on the gas.
Conway loved his children more than they probably ever realized, and this included his love for his honorary daughter. He questioned his own parenting and was hard on himself for the dad he “felt” he was. But, he was an amazing dad. He loved each of his children fiercely. He only wanted them to be better and do better than he ever did. He wanted them to create a future that was not anything short of amazing and without all the mistakes that he made as a young man. There truly was not anything he would not have done for them.
Conway was an amazing son and brother. He loved his parents and his brothers and appreciated the relationship he had with each of them. His mom made the perfect pancakes and his dad always had his back no matter the time or day. His bond with his brother Brandon ranged from going to the gym to talking about cars to just being there for one another as best friends are. Brandon was truly the best friend Conway had. They always had each other’s back at the drop of a dime and there is nothing they wouldn’t do for one another. His brother Shawn recently moved to Colorado. While Conway and he shared the joy in working out together, Conway was also happy to have the opportunity to get to know Shawn better and spend more time together while doing so.
As a husband, Conway loved fiercely and immensely. Although he and his wife had some hiccups, as many relationships do, he still showed her how much he loved and cared about her each and every day. They were complete opposites with very little in common other than the unconditional love and connection that they shared. They were definitely soul mates. They never stopped loving and caring about one another. No matter the obstacles, or even the miles, their love always brought them back to one another. He told her that no one ever loved him like she did him and he had never loved anyone as he did her. So many people, including Conway, told her that, with her, he was the best man and person he had ever been.
Conway is survived by his wife Tonya Hunter; son and daughter, Jake Hunter and Ashley Hunter and his honorary daughter Alexis Baugher; his mom and dad, Robert and Connie Hunter; his brothers Brandon Hunter (Nicole) and Shawn Hunter (Jessica); aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, cousins, and family galore. He is preceded in death by his brother Earl Hunter and nephew Darron Hunter.
Conway was an amazing human being, and we are all better for having known him and having had him in our lives. He will truly be missed, always loved and never forgotten.
I love you more!
