Lemuel S. Hunnicutt


Lemuel Scarbrough Hunnicutt, Jr., passed away October 18, 2019 at Bay Pines Veterans Hospital, Bay Pines, Florida after a brief illness of cancer.  He was just 62 years old.  

Born April 16, 1957, in St. Petersburg, Florida he is the son of the late Lemuel S. Hunnicutt Sr. and Margaret Pippin Hunnicutt, both from St. Petersburg, Florida.  

Lemuel leaves behind a loving family including his beloved daughters Deborah Hunnicutt Glasgow & Elizabeth Margaret Hunnicutt and their mother Debra Ouellette; son-in-law Shawn Glasgow, his two daughters and grandbaby;  sisters Pippin (Ron) Haseman of Tampa, FL and Louise (Tom) Hunnicutt of NYC, NY;  nieces Pippin (Scott) Haseman Gilbert and Lauren (Tim) Haseman McMullen;  great-nieces and great-nephews: Landon, Sammy, Crosley and Truella; and finally extended family members Dustin, Michele, Colin, Anna, and Owen Holzberger.    

Lemuel proudly served in the US Army in the late 1970’s, shortly after graduating from St. Petersburg High School. He was a champion outdoorsman, an adventurous and creative fisherman and boater, an avid reader, and a nature lover who worked as a landscaper for many years. He was a fabulous story teller and a proud and loving father of two. He always had time to listen patiently and lend a helping hand. He was one of the funniest and most compassionate people you could ever meet. Lemuel will be greatly missed by all who knew him for his unique personality, quick wit and sense of humor and his gentle and loving spirit. He always found the good in people and would share all he had with anyone in need. He was a true Christian who carried and practiced those values as taught to him by his beloved and greatly missed grandmother, mentor and fishing partner: The Late: Josephine Rich Pippin of St. Petersburg, FL.  

Fishing is like a prayer. Quiet, contemplative and patient. May he fish forever in the golden ponds of eternity. 

Special thanks to The Bay Pines Veterans Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida for providing excellent medical care. Thank you for giving Lemuel a compassionate, loving and caring atmosphere where he could live out his remaining days surrounded the things he loved: trees, nature, fish, turtles, birds and most importantly, his loving friends and family. 

There will be a private family service aboard a boat on Tampa Bay and his ashes will be spread in all the places he loved.

    Saddened to learn this news. Lem was a good man. We had a group of friends who were inseparable in those days on Snell Isle. Fishing, boating and camping on the island. So many fond memories. I will miss that great sense of humor and the sharp wit. Lem, you lived your life on your own terms and I applaud you for that. May you catch your limit (or more) every day in Heaven. With prayers for peace to the entire family. ~Alan Jenkins

    I only had the priviledge to know Lem when we were small children. I have never forgotten how sweet and gentle he was, even then.
    Condolences to his family.

    Saddened by the news of my old buddy Lemual Hunnicutt. AKA No Butt Hunnicutt. An integral part of the Brightwaters Mafia and a founder of The Island. RIP LEM too many great memories to share from ” back in the day”. I’m fairly certain I have not seen you in 35+ years. But you certainly made a lasting impression with me. May God Bless Your Soul !
