Thomas Hunter Valentine

Thomas Hunter Valentine of Russells Point, who had just turned 17 on June 5, was fatally injured in a car accident Friday, June 7, 2013.

He was born in Marion in 1996 to Berlin and Brandee Britenstine Valentine, who survive in Russells Point. He also is survived by his sister, Amber Williams of Columbus; two brothers, Richard Valentine of Tiffin and Mason (Traci Deann Carter) of Huber Heights; grandparents, Richard and Janice Valentine of Tiffin and Sandra Ohler of Columbus; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews; girlfriend, Audrianna Jordan of Russells Point; and best friends, Hunter Wolfe of Russells Point and Elias Johncox of Richwood.

He was preceded in death by Ted and Joan Britenstine of Richwood.

Hunter was a special teenager who was involved in everything he could be to improve the lives of others. His goal in life was to become a youth pastor. Hunter’s favorite time of year was church camp and he attended both junior and senior camps so that he could help out wherever he could.

Hunter attended Indian Lake High School and was a member of both the track and football teams. He also was a very active member of Students Against Destructive Decisions.

Pastor Karen Rarey officiates a memorial service at 11 a.m. Wednesday at Ada Full Gospel, with visitation one hour prior.

He was proud to be an organ donor and because of his decision to donate, many families will be blessed with the miracle of life.

Memorial contributions may be made to the family.
