A kind, courageous man, a champion of the underdog, he had a passion for peace, justice, and equality. He endeared himself to others. Bill is survived by his wife, Ann Fordham; daughter, Kathleen Zimmerman; sons, William Jr., Douglas, and James Anderson, and Benjamin and Andrew Fordham; eight grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; siblings, John F. Hunt III, Gerald L. Hunt, Carol Derby, Van Smith, and Debra Sterling; and many nieces, nephews, and friends. Predeceasing him were his parents, step-father, Dr. John F. Hunt Jr., & sister, Leslie Hunt. Bill had memberships in Tabernacle United Methodist Church in Poquoson, and First United Church of Christ in Hampton. Visitation will be Saturday, April 16th, 10:30-11:30 AM, with the Memorial Service at 11:30 AM at First United Church of Christ by Rev. Lisa Gaul. A reception will follow at the church. In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made to either church. Condolences to claytorrollins.com . Claytor Rollins Funeral Home, Poquoson, is assisting. "Appreciation to his personal aides and York Convalescent Center for their compassionate care."

Additional infomation on the USS BORIE (DD-704)

 

After the World War II & Korean War duties;

.... a few notable exceptions: her 1959 recovery of the Project Mercury nose cone and Sam, the space monkey; her 1960 surveillance duties with the Polaris missile submarines George Washington Carver and Robert E. Lee; and in 1961, a Fleet Rehabilitation and Modernization (FRAM) overhaul. In the Caribbean in 1962, she rescued nine Cubans seeking asylum in the U.S. and, later, three Jamaican fishermen, and then joined the U.S. blockade during the Cuban Missile Crisis where Borie participated in forcing a diesel powered Russian submarine to the surface. She then offered the sub aid and supplies (an insult to the sub.) Borie, then along with two other destroyers, escorted it out of the area. During the night Borie received orders to head for the Panama Canal and wait for 20 amphibious ships from the west coast to establish an attack task force.

Son of William,
About James Stewart Edwards :
  


Dear John,
Thanks for the message about the Edwards family.  I can send you some information on my father and the Edwards family.  Even though he died when I was very young, I do know a lot about him and the Edwards family.  I don't have his death certificate and expect it burned in the fire we had in 1956.  He is buried in Apopka, Florida, in the Edwards family plot.  His brother David is buried there and so are his parents and little brother Willie.  I try to visit it if possible when I go to Florida.  He was called Stewart.
This is what I copied off the tomb stones in Apopka: William Edwards: (my grandfather) Nov. 29, 1869 - July 4, 1934 and  his wife (my grandmother)  Isobel T. Edwards - May 31, 1875 - June 28, 1939, James Stewart Edwards, March 8, 1898 - March 19, 1940 (my father).  Next time I go there I will get the dates of the other family members.  I know there is a small boy "Wee Willie" and David, both sons of William and Isobel. 
With warm regards,

Ann

Son of William,
About David Stewart Edwards Sr. :  

Dear J,
I just spent a few days with my Uncle David Stewart Edwards.  He came to help me with genealogy.  All he could add to what you and I have was photographs and a few stories.  I will try to send you a few photographs.  (Only of David Stewart Edwards - James' Brother) I also don't know anything about James except that he married a woman named Blanche.  There were no children from that marriage. Then he married your Aunt Ruth Hoyt next.  I am in touch with my Aunt Nancy Jean Edwards-Mabry who currently lives in Lakeland, Florida.  She seems to know more than anyone, but it is taking me some time to pull these stories out of her.  She grew up in Orlando.  They used to hang out at Errol Estate as children, where William Edwards used to run that place.  Nancy says William and another fellow had a bank note together.  The note came due, and somehow the other fellow couldn't pay so William got stuck with all of it.  Apparently that's why they moved to Zellwood.  James and David lived there but Nancy was quite sure Margaret Jean had moved away.  The new place in Zellwood (still nice) eventually burned down.  Do you know about these stories?  Nancy eluded to some family dissension.  Not sure what that was all about.  Scanning what I have - I think it's the same as you.  I'm mainly interested in going further than William and Isabelle - on to Scotland research.  Thanks to you I have a starting place now.   Keep in touch.  Let me know if these don't send. 
 
L. Graham

J. Hoyt:
 
I am assuming you are the one that has set up this incredible web site for all these families.  My name is L. Graham.  I am daughter of P. J. Edwards who is daughter to D. S. Edwards, Jr. who is son of William G. Edwards.  D. S. Edwards had a brother named James Stewart Edwards whose second wife was Ruth Hoyt.  I have much to add to decendancy.  I will do so soon.  Can you tell me a little about you and how you started compiling this.  Are you a professional genealogist?  It certainly appears so.  I will look forward to hearing from you.
 
Many thanks from me and mine!
