It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Allan James Hunter (Hutch), 76, of Windsor, Ontario. Allan passed away after a short battle with cancer, peacefully at home with family by his side, on Jan. 10, 2022.
Allan was born to Ida (née Eskrick) and Midford Hunter on Jan. 5, 1946 in Kincardine. He was passionate about academics and athletics throughout the entirety of his life with a special affection for the game of baseball. After graduating Kincardine District Secondary School, Allan completed a degree in mathematics at the University of Western Ontario; a subject which he taught for many years at Walkerton District Secondary School.
Allan is survived by his wife and best friend, Lynda (Hall) Hunter; son Todd (Hirut) and daughters Tammy and Tanis (Mika); brother Ted (Betty) and sister Glenna; and his precious granddaughter, Jalyn (in whom he took great pleasure teasing incessantly). He is also remembered by extended family and friends.
Allan was predeceased by parents Ida and Midford, brother Wayne and daughter-in-law Donna.
Over the years, Allan accumulated many good friends and friendships, which he always cherished and appreciated.
While we would love to hold a memorial service in Allan’s name, he specifically requested no service take place. His ashes will be placed in the memorial wall at the Kincardine Cemetery in the spring of 2022.
In lieu of flowers, anyone wishing to make a gesture of condolence, please donate to a charity of your choice or Allan’s preferred worthy cause, Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides (www.dogguides.com). Any and all gestures are greatly appreciated.

Lynda,Todd,Tammy and Tanis ….I was very sorry to hear that Allan had passed away. Allan and I grew up together in Armow and as young boys and indeed into our teenage years both of us along with Ken Davey spent countless hours every summer playing ball on the diamond behind the one room school in Armow. We also played on the ball teams that we had in Armow back in those days. In the winter it was hour after hour playing hockey on the road, usually in front of Stewart Hunter’s General Store and most often with broken hockey sticks and chunks of snow as the goalpost markers. Wonderful memories that bring a smile to my face. May God give you all peace and comfort during this difficult time…Ron Davey
Sending all the hugs you need remembering many good times after ballgames with Al and Lynda. Condolences to all !
