Obituary for ELIJAH LEROY HUNTER, III

Elijah Leroy Hunter, III (affectionately known as Junior, Suk Suk, Soljah Boy, Black and Champ) was born July 15, 1971 to Elijah & Joan Hunter (Mackall) in Prince Frederick, Maryland. Elijah fought a good fight, finished his course and moved from this home to his new home where his sickness was defeated. He departed this life on Thursday, May 30, 2013 at Calvert Memorial Hospital in Prince Frederick, Maryland. Elijah attended the public schools of Calvert County where he excelled and was known as #44 on the basketball court and football field. He was a loyal fan of the New England Patriots. He enlisted in the Military (Army) in October 1989 and was Honorably Discharged June 1995 after serving his country in the Gulf War. He later was employed as a Contractor in Kosovo and later worked in Iraq, training Iraqi Nationals. After returning, he worked as a Special Police Officer in the Washington Metropolitan area. Elijah joined Greater Mount Zion Church in 2008. Elijah had a great sense of humor and when he was around there was little time for sadness even during his illness. He loved laughter and loved everyone he came in contact with. He travelled around the world and left his love everywhere he went. He did not talk love but the love of God was shown by his action. He was filled with care and concern for others and was willing to do what he could for anyone. You could not help from loving him even after he has spoken his mind, he would break out a smile or a laugh that made you forget he just blessed you. After a long courtship and the birth of one son (Jordan), Elijah married his soul mate in September of 2004, Felisha Hawkins. Elijah leaves to cherish and share his memories, a devoted and loving wife; Felisha Hunter, mother; Joan Mackall, father; Elijah Hunter, Jr.; two sons, Jordan Hunter and Major Hunter (his boxer); father and mother-in-law, Overton and Cynthia Hawkins; two sister-in-laws; Shannon Hunter and LaShawn Anderson; one brother-in-law, Christopher Jones; four brothers; Miguel Hicks, Jermaine Hunter, Natawn Hunter, and Renard Mackall; three sisters; LaNita Hunter and Angel LaNita Hunter and Angel Jones; two spiritual sisters; Ineva Wharton and Raini Haynes; nine aunts; Virgina Adams, Vivian Hicks, Gladys Holland, Elizabeth Hunter Barnett; Darlene Polk; Dorrine Rhoades; Helen Smith; Sandra Hunter, Mary Ellen Hunter; one uncle, Carl Hicks. He also leaves a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and caring friends.
