Harold William Hunter passed away peacefully May 26, 2013 at the Elk Valley Hospital in Fernie, at the age of 65.
Harold was born in the old Fernie hospital on February 13, 1948. Throughout his childhood he lived in Cranbrook and Three Hills and returned to Fernie, where he graduated high school. In his youth, he loved all sports, being outdoors, and the many family gatherings. In 1967, at the age of 19, he joined the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. He was stationed all over Alberta until he retired in 1995 after 30 years and a day of service.
Harold was a very gentle, loving and caring man, who treated everyone he met like family. He embraced life and was very spontaneous. What he loved the most, was sharing time with his wife, children and grandchildren. Smiling and laughing were second nature to him, sharing his smiles and jokes with everyone he met.
Harold enjoyed travelling, sports, volunteering and telling stories. His most recent accomplishment was receiving his Canada Pension.
He will be forever loved by his family: his loving wife Loreli, his four children and eleven grandchildren: Chuck, Eve, Cody, Kyle and Alex Hunter; Shane, Gloria and Lucas Hunter; Teena, Chris, Damian, Dylan, Kirsten, Braedon, Zachary and Bradley Licht; Katie, Colin and Sophie Warwick. Also, his sister Lynn Robson and extended family, and Patti and Ashley Hockley.
He has now been reunited with his parents Stephen and Aline Hunter.
