HUNT, William
The Cape Breton Post, June 4, 2013
Born In: Harbour Breton, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada
Passed in: North Sydney, Canada
Passed on: June 2nd, 2013

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of William Hunt at the age of 92 years old on Sunday, June 2, 2013 at the Northside General Hospital, surrounded by his loving family. Born in Harbour Breton, N.L., he was the son of the late Andrew and Agnes (Harris) Hunt. Bill is survived by his daughter, Frances Hurley, Brampton, Ont. and his son, Larry (Norma) Hunt, Albert Bridge, Cape Breton. "Grampy" is also survived by grandchildren, Aaron (Jennifer), Amy (Doug), Kelly (David), Liam, Stanley (Melanie), Shawn (Diane), Tracey (Charlie) and Perry, and 12 great-grandchildren. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by Mary (Perry), his loving wife of 59 years, in 2006; son, William in 1983; son-in-law, Wilbert in 1983 and grandchildren, Jamie Hurley and William Alexander Hunt. The last member of his immediate family, Bill was also predeceased by brothers, Walter, Edgar, James, George and sister, Evelyn.

William was a veteran of the Second World War. In 1939, shortly after the outbreak of the war, he and a dozen of his fellow Newfoundlanders from the Fortune Bay area were the first to enlist to go overseas. He was also the last surviving member of this group.

In 1953, Bill and Mary settled in Louisbourg, Cape Breton, to raise a family. For many years of his life, Bill worked on the water; fishing on various schooners, as well as being a lobster fisherman and member of the Canadian Coast Guard. He traveled as far north as the Arctic Circle and as far south as the Caribbean. Bill was a talented storyteller; whether from his experiences growing up in Newfoundland, serving overseas in England and Scotland, or sailing and fishing on the open sea, he captured many hearts and minds with stories of his life. Although he will be dearly missed, the family knows he is happy to be reunited with "Nan".

Visitation will be held on Thursday, June 6, from 7-9 p.m. at St. Bartholomew's Church, Louisbourg. A funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. Friday, June 7 at St. Bartholomew's Church, Louisbourg with Archdeacon Brenda Drake officiating.
