Story

Carlton Hunt was our friend. He was a friend to many. He was a kind and loving man, one of life's true gentlemen.

Carlton sadly passed away far too soon, on Friday 3rd November 2017, after a sudden illness.

Carlton was a husband so in love with his wife Cathy, he was an adoring father to Daniel & Matthew, a wonderful son to Eileen & Barry, a close brother to Paul. A much loved addition to Cathy's family also. He was like a brother to his band mates and the band family. He will be sorely missed. Carlton was a talented drummer who played with many bands over the years, more known for his days with Buster and the Bad Manners band, and his more recent days as the Daddy of the hugely popular Biblecodesundays & Lorraine O'Relly Band. Carlton had many friends and fans who loved him dearly and his kind and gentle ways have spread across the world and touched many lives.

We will all want to pay tribute in some way, with flowers or in other ways. The funeral will be an added expense for the family, and we would like to help financially, if it might be needed.

We would also like a legacy to be left in Carlton's memory, and the money left after the funeral will go towards the ICU at the hospital that looked after Carlton so well and Cathy would love to sponsor a music scholarship in the future in his memory, to perhaps assist a young musician who needs it.

There is little we can do to ease the family's pain right now with the huge loss of a class act, but this small act might give them some comfort to know that we want his memory and his talent to live on in our hearts forever.

We love you Carlton, fly high with the angels, play that gig, with one of your idols Phil Lynott now! We will miss you forever and you will be forever etched in our hearts.

Rest in Peace buddy and watch over Cathy, the boys and your family.

Thank you and God Bless

      So so sorry to hear this sad news. I love listening to the Bible Code Sunday’s. I visit the wishing well pub for the St Patrick’s Day celebrations and saw Carlton there. Excellent drummer. Sad news. X

      On behalf of the West London Irish Society thanks to Bible Code Sundays for a tremendous gig on the 11th at our annual dinner. The finale was a rousing rendition of You'll never walk alone for Carlton
