Eli Hunter

May 9, 2003 — September 8, 2018

Elijah "Eli" Allen Hunter, 15, went to be with the Lord on September 8, 2018. Eli was born in Effingham, Illinois on May 9, 2003 to Ben and Stormy Hunter.

Eli was a very highly energetic boy that loved the Sandhills and the ranch with all of his heart. He could not wait until Friday night to go to the ranch. He was a big help to his dad and John during the summer. He also loved branding time and helping Uncle Paul and Mike. He loved to hunt and fish with his dogs. He would often drag his sister, Ileigh, to the ponds to go swimming. He was a true lover of the outdoors and could never find him inside.

Eli was one-of-a-kind that could talk to just about anyone regardless of age. Eli and his mama became quite the fencing team. They would often play out in the driveway or have long talks.

Eli leaves behind his parents, Ben and Stormy; sister Ileigh; grandparents Dena Hare, Gene Hunting and Ron and Cindi Hunter; and great-grandparents; Dean and Eleanor Strasburger and Charlene and Darrell Wood. He is also survived by his Uncles and Aunts; Shane (Karen) Hare, Edgar (Tiff) Hunter, Veronica Schraer and John & Mel Strasburger and numerous other family members.

He was preceded in death by his grandfather Scott Hare, great-grandfather Dean Hare and great-great Uncle and Aunt Eb and Ellen Strasburger.

A memory has been established and donations may be sent in care of Chamberlain-Pier Funeral Home, PO Box 366, Gordon, NE 69343.
