Mr. Patrick Lynn Hunt, ‘Pat’, age 56, of Lumberton NC, was born April 28th, 1967 to Mrs. Doris Hunt Locklear the late Mr. Randy Locklear in Charlotte, N.C. His journey was completed on September 5th, 2023, in Lumberton, NC.
Along with his father, he was preceded in death by his paternal grandmother, Ms. Sally Locklear, and his maternal grandparents, Mr. Rozier D. Hunt and Ms. Zella Hunt.
He leaves to cherish in his memory, his mother, Mrs. Doris H. Locklear, and stepfather, Mr. Leon Locklear of Lumberton, NC. His children, a son Patrick Lynn Hunt, Jr., (Hannah), daughters, Jessica Lynn P. Locklear (Phillip), Jenifer Lynn Patterson (Jake), of Rowland, Caitlyn Lynn Hunt, and Evieanna Sampson both of Lumberton. He also leaves to cherish his memory, sisters, Michelle Locklear (nieces, Carolyn and Kayla) and Annette Northcutt (Danny), both of Lumberton, a niece, Hillary Carver, and a nephew, Christopher Carver. He leaves behind 21 grandchildren who love their Grandpa Pat. Those who also cherish his memory are a host of relatives and friends.
Patrick grew up in West and East Lumberton and had lifetime friendships with many of his neighborhood and school friends. Patrick attended Lumberton Sr. High School. He was a jack of all trades, his specialties were metal framing, hanging, plumbing, electrical work, and any other job you might need to be done. Of all he was capable of, his best qualities were his goodness and kindness. He would give you the shirt off his back and offer a place to stay if needed. He was a tattoo artist, self-taught, and is famously known as Pat the Tattoo Man. Jokingly we say that there isn’t a Lumbee around and others, who don’t bear that famous tattoo, the Indian Chief with the war bonnet. Patrick was once interviewed by his grandson Cody, who asked what he cherishes most, and his reply was his family. He loved his family more than anything, through phone calls and visits he always kept in touch. He had a special connection with his grandchildren and tried to be a part of their lives. He was close with his uncles, cousins who felt like brothers, and friends who were loved like family. These same feelings were shared mutually. Patrick loved his grandmothers, his Mother Doris, and his Aunt Cynthia, all dearly. Many of his friends remember him as a man who just isn’t made like him anymore. He was proud of his native heritage and being a ‘Lumbee’ was what he represented. All who knew him knew he loved his wood burning, turquoise jewelry, and braids. He was not just Pat, he was well-known, well-loved, hard-working, and a Lumbee Legend. He will be missed and remembered always.
