Steve Hunter, Florida Tea Party leader, killed in car accident

Sad news for Tea Party activists in Florida as President of the Ocala group was killed in a car accident.

Steve Hunter Ocala Tea Party groupSave America Foundation reported the news first: “This morning while in a business meeting with my boss I received a phone call telling me the President of the Ocala Tea Party (my dear friend) Steven Hunter was killed last night in an auto accident.  I removed myself from my bosses office and took the call.  It was a very sad day for me,” Senior Chief Geoff Ross, United States Navy retired wrote.

Tea Party Solutions Inc. was a group led by Hunter to “educate, motivate and activate the silent majority on fiscal responsibility, limited government and free markets issues regarding our local, state and federal legislation and legislators.”

“Steve was an unwavering champion of freedom in Florida, whose warm and endearing personality overcame any petty political differences. He was a respected colleague and dear friend to all who knew him. I will miss him,” Adrian Wyllie, the Libertarian candidate for Florida governor told The Global Dispatch.

“I have known Steve for years and we worked very closely on many projects together in the defense of our nation.   He will be sorely missed, not only by me, but by all Americans…” Ross added in the announcement.

There will be a viewing Tuesday with the burial on Wednesday. For more information contact the Country Side Funeral Home in Anthony, Florida. HERE
