Charles Thomas Hunt

August 15, 1937 - September 8, 2020

It is with great sadness that the Hunt family announces the passing of Charlie – proud father of Roberta (Glenn) and Laurie; grandfather to Dara Potts; former husband to Jean; dear friend of Leslie Osborne; brother to Shirley (Don); and uncle to Brett and Lindsay Lupton. Friend and familiar character to many in his chosen home of Northumberland County. His knack for do-it-yourself projects inspired him to tackle several major home renovations where his family lived and enjoyed country life. Charlie had a passion for the good ole game of hockey, was dedicated to both his childhood and local Pals and was an avid Tim Horton’s coffee drinker.
The family would like to extend a sincere thank you to all of the support staff at Cobourg Retirement Residence, Central East LHIN, and Dr. Everdell and team. Donations in Charlie’s memory may be made to Diabetes Canada or the Kidney Foundation of Canada. A celebration of life will happen at a future date.

Dear Roberta & Laurie, We are so sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing! He was such a nice man! He certainly was talented, taking on many homes to restore and between your Mom and Charlie they made those homes, “magazine worthy”. I know Gary will miss his Tim Horton coffee visits with him! He was so proud of his girls! Sending hugs to you both! Love Gary & Lisa

Dear Laurie and Roberta. I never got to thank Charlie in my adult life for providing me with wonderful memories from Roseneath. Laurie and I sure got into a few adventures there. He never seem to mind driving out of his way to take me home on a Sunday after working so hard all weekend and struggling with the 401 traffic. I believe he presued and fofilled his passions in life. Rest in peace Charlie.

Anne Parker - September 11, 2020

Our sympathy to you, Roberta, and your family in the passing of your father, our former Roseneath neighbour. Sincerely, Gary and Anne Parker
