Newell Hunt was one of the youngest sons of Greenwood's pioneer merchants, born and spent his early youth in Greenwood. Before World War I, Newell left Greenwood, moved to Chippewa Falls where he was married in 1917 to Mary E Comerford. The couple moved to Milwaukee where Mr. Hunt managed an A&P Grocery Store for a few years after having served in the 107th Engineers during World War I. The 107th Engineers were a part of the 32nd Division.
In the middle twenties, Newell moved back to Eau Claire and was employed at the Uniroyal Tire Company in a supervising capacity. He retired from the company in 1962. For some years he lived at his home on Lake Wissota east of Chippewa Falls.
He and Mrs. Hunt became residents of Eau Claire Manor Rest Home in Eau Claire in the late sixties and Newell passed away there on November 11, 1978 at the age of 81.
Mr. Hunt is survived by two sons, Robert of Chippewa Falls and James of El Cajon, California; four daughters, Mrs. Donald Werlein, Mrs. LaMoine Robertson, Mrs. James LaBelle, all of Eau Claire and Mrs. Robert Fesenmaier of Lake Geneva and a brother, Dr. Hale Hunt of La Crosse; nineteen grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.
Burial services were at Notre Dame Catholic Church in Chippewa Falls with burial at Our Lady of Hope Cemetery at that city. Military Rights were performed by the VFW Post 1030 and members of the American Legion.

Newell was nicknamed "Nug" or "Nugget" by his grandfather, Charles A Hunt who had visited California in 1850 to participate in the "Gold Rush".
