Former Alabama Governor Guy Hunt


Recommended Posts

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Guy Hunt, who in 1987 became Alabama's first Republican governor since Reconstruction but six years later was the first chief executive removed from office for a criminal conviction, died Friday in Birmingham. He was 75.

Family spokesman Mark McDaniel said Hunt died at Trinity Medical Center. Hunt was diagnosed with lung cancer in June 2004 and had part of his right lung removed at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla. The cancer returned in late 2005, and Hunt continued to receive treatment off and on for the rest of his life.
