Paramedic Hunter, suffered full cardiac arrest after returning from a call.

Following routine discussion regarding that case, he had restocked his ambulance, then told his team members he was going to lie down. During his rest another emergency call for help came in. John was on the phone with that call when his co-workers heard the phone drop. Checking to see what had happened, they found John was in cardiac arrest. An all-out effort to revive John was made by his rescue team members.

He was immediately transported to Middle Kentucky River Medical Center where it was determined John had died.

He was also a member of Red Bird Vol Fire and Rescue, Inc. of Beverly, Kentucky. During the summer he worked as a wildland firefighter for the National Forest Service. He served in the U.S. Army and was a Gulf War Veteran.

My unlce John was a great man, I didn't get to see him often as I live in Colorado with my mom Clara Victoria Hunter and my two little brothers Stephen Hunter Speigelmyer and Randal Lee Speigelmyer.

I visted him a cuple times but the last time I saw him was two years before he died. He was the best man I had ever met.

My mom says that he was a great man and brother, and he had the biggest heart in the world.

I wish that I could have known him better but I know that he watchs over us all the time.

I love you Uncle John
