Friends and family have taken to social media page go express their grief over the death of Hunt Erwin.
Through out the years he would just contact me out the blue and say brother I love you and proud of you. Always staying in touch willing to give the shirt off his back if he felt you needed it. Always searching for away to improve things for the youth in Rock Hill.
It is crazy that we just spoke a few days back and today I woke up to this news that you are no longer with us. Just knowing our last conversation a few days ago was about helping someone else in life. Is the answer to why you was always in my corner!! You will always be a Hero Hunt Erwin, to me and many others my brother. Just glad our last conversation ended with me given you the roses you deserved!!! Love you and you will be missed #RIP #HuntErwin #RockHillBearcats” Said Lamont Boozer.
We are devastated at the loss of our great friend Hunt Erwin. Hunt was the best dent man on this side of the Mississippi and worked on tons of our cars here at Burns Ford of York. Hunt never met a stranger and would help anyone who needed him- he was a great friend to many! We knew Hunt and his family personally and are covering them in our prayers. Hunt- you will be greatly missed and we will see you in Heaven one day buddy!” According to Burns Ford.
According to Courtney Manss, “I’m heartbroken, and in disbelief and saddened by the loss of a good friend. Hunt was more than a friend. He was a husband, a son, a father and a brother. I can only pray the Erwin family and the others involved somehow find peace in this unimaginable time. My heart goes out to you.
He had this quick wit about him; that was Hunt. The boundless ability to make you laugh.
I respected him so much, because he looked out for his friends and family. He made sure you were on the right track and if you weren’t, boy he would let you know. The world needs more people like you big guy. Just as genuine as they come. I’ll see you again one day buddy and we’ll play that game of kickball we always talked about.
“I’m proud of you sis, love ya, be careful.”
The crash is still under investigation by the Rock Hill police officers.
