John Lawrence Hunt, noted author, lecturer, information technology implementer and teacher in the exploration and production segment of the oil and gas industry, was born August 22, 1950 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina to Horace Clayton Hunt and Sharon Francis Sedgwick Hunt, and departed this life on October 13, 2011 in Denver, Colorado. Mr. Hunt is survived by a daughter, Holly Hunt, also of Denver, CO and a son, Adam John Hunt of Houston, TX. Additionally Mr. Hunt is survived by three brothers and two sisters-Paul C. (Martha) Hunt of Valdosta, GA; Michael P. (Mary) Parsons of Rapid City, SD and David R. Parsons of Little Rock, AR; Mary F. Hunt and Patricia S. Parsons, both of Little Rock, AR. He was predeceased by both his parents; his stepfather, Francis Ernest Parsons and his stepmother, Jeannie Hunt of Houston, TX. The family also wishes to acknowledge Dr. Skip Galle and his extended family for their many unselfish and supportive actions benefiting the Hunt/Parsons family. Mr. Hunt was educated in the parochial schools of Mobile, AL, notably St. Joan of Arc Elementary School and McGill Institute (now McGill-Toolen Catholic High School), and the University of Southern Mississippi which he attended on a music scholarship and where he served as Chapter President of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity. Mr. Hunt received his undergraduate degree in English from the University of South Alabama, Mobile, Alabama and in 1980 his law degree from Mississippi College School of Law, Clinton, Mississippi. Mr. Hunt was a Certified Professional Landman (CPL) in the American Association of Professional Landmen (AAPL) and was an active member of the Houston, Alaska, Wyoming and Denver APL’s. John was CEO of John L. Hunt & Associates, an Energy E-Business Development Consulting firm specializing in the application of information technology to acquisitions and divestitures of oil & gas assets in due diligence, examination process and team management. The firm maintained offices in Houston and Denver. He was the winner, along with the Houston Association of Professional Landmen (HAPL), of the AAPL Best Member Communications Award for a 2 part series of IT articles named “flat files future is now, part 1, and part 2”. He was also the 2000-2001 AAPL APEX Award winner for IT Education for Landmen for serving as Assistant Chair of the Information Technology Committee, 2000-2001, which re-worked the entire media at AAPL Headquarters.

Earlier in his life, following the death of his mother, Mr. Hunt had been called on to provide leadership and see to the care of his five brothers and sisters. To do so he followed his father and stepfather into the U. S. Merchant Marine and took to the sea. His travels took him around the world and increased his interest in languages. He mastered Spanish and had a working knowledge of French. He authored a couple of self-published Celtic works in honor of his Celt heritage. Mr. Hunt also oversaw the restoration of Landmark Hall, an antebellum mansion on Mobile’s main thoroughfare, Government Street. It is currently used as offices and for receptions.
