Terry Hunt died peacefully on Sunday, Sept. 7, 2008, with his family by his side after a brief but very brave battle with cancer.
Born in London, England, Terry along with his young family immigrated to Canada in May, 1970. Soon after, Terry started work with Ontario Hydro at Deep River, moving to Kincardine in 1973. He helped with the commissioning of Bruce GSA and, when the time came, helped shut it down. Recently Terry was involved with the Restart project. He was truly a man who loved his work.
Terry was very involved in his community as a member of the Ripley and District Lion's Club. He also served on several local committees where he worked very hard to give back to the community of Ripley, which meant so much to him.
He will be very much missed by his wife Joye, daughters Deborah (Caira) and Cherie (Johnson), sons-in-law Sean Johnson and Gabriele Caira, and grandchildren Meghan and Brady Johnson.
Also feeling his loss are his many family members: Allen Farmiloe and Maureen Dillon; Julie Nobert; Matt Lawrence; Dustin and Tyler Nobert; Charlotte, Siya and Mazdack Elahy; Paul, Margaret, Olivia and Maxwell Farmiloe; Bo Farmiloe; Rosina Singerman; Brian and Marj Hunt and family; Joe and Marg Hunt and family; Peter Hunt; and James and Betty Feates and family.
He was very special - the most giving man, and we feel very privileged to have had him as our own.
On Saturday, Sept. 13, 2008, all are invited to attend a Celebration of the Life of Terry, from 2-4 p.m. at the Ripley Legion. Bring your memories so that we can share them together.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Township of Huron-Kinloss for the Ripley Fire Department or the Lewis Park Revitalization Project.
