Christopher E. Hurt, 48, of Eubank, passed away Friday, April 12, 2019 at the University of Kentucky Hospital in Lexington.
He was born on October 1, 1970; son of Norman Eugene Hurt and the late Judy Godbey Hurt. He was a substitute teacher for the Pulaski Co. School System. Chris enjoyed announcing for basketball games at Pulaski Co. High School. An avid movie buff, he loved quoting movie references, and going to the 27 Twin Drive-In. He enjoyed helping at church functions and being able to help in the community, especially when Gerald's Auto Parts offered vehicle services to needy families.

His favorite companion was his cat Buddy.
