Victor Horace Hunt

-

Victor Horace Hunt, age 76, of Beaumont, Alberta, died Saturday evening, February 8, 2014 at the Leduc Community Hospital surrounded by his family. Born July 23, 1937, in Lanigan, Saskatchewan, he was the son of the late John (Jack) Hunt and Mary (nee Burnett) Hunt.
At the age of 19, Victor left the Lanigan-area and joined the Canadian Army where he served for a 3-year period as an Airborne-member of the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry. Following his tour, he met his wife, Beverley, and relocated to an acreage near Yorkton, Saskatchewan where he spent the next 25 years working the land and raising his family – things that were dearest to his heart. In the late 1990’s he and Beverley relocated to Edmonton, Alberta where he worked as a Commissionaire with the Canadian Corp of Commissionaires until he retired to Beaumont, Alberta. He was a life-long fan of both the Saskatchewan Roughriders and the Toronto Maple Leafs, and he enjoyed growing vegetables and being outdoors. These pleasures were only exceeded by spending time with his family and grandchildren.
He is survived by his loving wife of 51 years, Beverley Jean; along with five children; Dennis and Rhonda Hunt of Saltcoats, Saskatchewan, Edward and Ruth Hunt of St. Albert, Alberta, Joyce and Allan Clements of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Kathy and Kurt Homrighausen of Spanaway, Washington and Laura and Brian Bjerke of Beaumont, Alberta; 11 grandchildren, Drew Hunt, Jenna Hunt, Connor Hunt, Sara Hunt, Lauren Hunt, Dana Hunt, Justin Britt, Brendan Clements, Morgan LeBlanc, Keri Bjerke, and Nicole Bjerke; two siblings, Alice Steranka of Toronto, Ontario and Evelyn Martin of Lethbridge, Alberta and many other loving nieces, nephews and relatives.
Memorial services for Victor Hunt will be held at 1:00 pm Friday, February 21, 2014 at the Serenity Funeral Service Chapel, 4702-51 Avenue, Leduc, Alberta. Burial will follow in the Field of Honour, Leduc Cemetery (West). Serving as honourary pallbearers are Victor’s grandchildren. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be sent to the Alberta Cancer Foundation 710-10123 99 Street, Edmonton, Alberta T5J 3H1.

Can’t believe it’s been 2 years, sometimes it feels like you just left us yesterday and some days it feels like you’ve been gone forever. Each and every day I try to make you proud.

The hurt doesn’t really go away, I guess I’ve just learned how to live with it.
Dunno why God chose to take you away from us but I know you are in peace.

Miss you dad.

Keri Bjerke

It’s been over a year since you passed away, and my heart was torn. Things haven’t been the same since you passed. Even though I got to spend 10 years of my life on this earth with you, doesn’t mean I’m not still heartbroken. I’m so glad that when I played indoor soccer you came to one of my games to watch me play, I won’t ever forget that moment when our team won, and you were watching. Without you, I could’ve never been the same. You would play games with me and Nicole for hours, and never get bored. Also we would watch sponge bob and wrestling on Friday nights, which was the best with you. Now I’m going into grade 7 , and I play soccer and have scored 16 goals, you would definitely be very proud of me. I miss you like crazy, and I love you sooo much grandpa.:heart:

9 months today and I still feel raw inside. I miss you each and every day and the world is grey without you in it. Love you dad.

I find it hard to even explain how much I miss You, Grandpa. The stories you would tell about your childhood, about your parents, about when you cut your finger tip off and you were with Westberg at the time. I’ve heard the story from you and from him. I don’t know why this happened to you but I’m so unbelievably blessed to have had a grandfather like you in my life.

Hockey was your passion
Hockey is mine

I’m always sad you’re gone
Even if I say I’m fine

You’re in a better place now
I know that must be true

Though the only words I can conjure
Are “Why would it be you?”

The way you would pop your teeth out
When I was just small

Granny would give you heck
Say she didn’t want them to fall

I wish you could have seen me play
Just once out on the ice

I play hockey for you now
In hopes I will suffice

Every game, every shift
I have you in my mind

Every step I take in life
I know you’re a step behind

You’re always near my heart, Grandpa
My necklace holds that true

There will always be a special place
A place in my heart for you.

I miss you Grandpa and I love you so much.

We at Ready, Set, Grow Preschool were so very saddened to hear of Mr Hunts passing. Over his grandaughters’s preschool years we got to know and love his gentle and loving ways with Nicole and Keri. When they were moved to elementary school we missed seeing him as much as the girls!

I found out through conversations with him that he grew up very close to where I did in Saskatchewan and he and my Dad actually played senior hockey against each other! He was a wonderful man who will be deeply missed by all who knew him. Much love and prayers to his family xoxo

Dad at a better time…

(Will get Dad’s picture properly put on his file as soon as the office opens).

Though we may not have more time
The time we had I will always cherish.
We will always have the suppers we cooked together,
The hard work mowing the lawn,
And of course all the football chats we shared.
But to me grandpa,
You are more than any words could ever describe.
Although our time together has expired
You will always hold an exceptionally special place in my heart.

P.S. I told you Saskatchewan would win. Love you grandpa. Rest in peace.

Joyce Clements

I’m my dad’s oldest daughter and his middle child. I have many fond memories of my dad growing up..including learning how to milk a cow from him and learning how to pluck and clean chickens on the farm from him. In his later years as I became an adult and moved away from him I always knew if I needed help with something in my garden or if I needed help with something on my car he would always be but a phone call away.
I will never forget my last times with you Dad. The last time I left you at the house I hugged you(which was not usual for me) and told you I loved you. And I meant it. The day you passed was only the day your memory grew stronger in my heart. We will never forget you Dad.

Kathy Homrighausen

I’m Victor’s daughter. To be honest, my strongest memories of my dad are in the latter part of his life, after he retired. I remember his kindness, his zest for life, the joy he got from spending time with his granddaughters everyday after school. To the world he may have only been one person, but to us, he was the entire world. Miss you every day dad. I used to worry what if you don’t recognize me in Heaven, but then I realized you don’t need your eyes to see love, you just feel it in your soul.
