Hunter Reese Robirds, a very kind and intelligent 2017 graduate of Potterville High School, died unexpectedly on Saturday, October 7, 2018 in Charlotte. Hunter, 19, of Charlotte, was born December 22, 1998 in Lansing, the son of John Robirds and Barbara Merritt. He played trumpet in the high school band and was a National Honor Society member.

He worked at Wendy’s each summer, where he made many close friends.
