Byron G. Hunter, of Winona Lake, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Saturday, August 27,
2022, at the age of 98.
He was born on March 18, 1924, in Miami County, Indiana, the son of Ernest and Edna Hunter (Haldeman). He
was a graduate of Gillead High School. After high school, Byron served in the United States Navy during
World War II. He then furthered his education by receiving his bachelor's degree from the Indiana Institute of
Technology in Fort Wayne. Byron worked as an electronic engineer at ITT Aerospace and retired after 35 years.
On July 28, 1943, Byron married the love of his life, Winifred “Wynne” Fiwiek, in South Bend, Indiana and
together they raised their five children. The two spent just under 66 years together before her passing in April of
2009. Both Byron and Wynne loved to go dancing and spend quality time with their family and friends.
Although Byron was a very modest man, he was well respected by those who knew him both professionally and
personally. He had an endless amount of patience, especially when it came to raising his children. Byron loved
to tinker and fix anything. If he couldn’t fix it, then no one could. He was very active and loved to exercise. He
also enjoyed playing golf and bowling.
Those who survive with his memories to cherish include his children, Janine Hunter, Joyce Burnett, Rodney
(Leslie) Hunter, and Pamela (Jerry) Koehlinger; 6 grandchildren; and 10 great grandchildren. He is further
survived by many extended family members and friends. He is preceded in death by his parents; son, Randy
Hunter; brothers, Robert and Roger Hunter; sisters, Mona Jane Long and Ernestine Fenimore; and great great
granddaughter, Lainey Lou Reinhard.
