In Loving Memory Of

Donald Michael Francis Hunt


Donald Michael Francis Hunt of Grande Prairie, AB, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, September 13, 2017, at UofA Hospital in Edmonton, surrounded by his loving family.

Don was born August 7, 1957 in Yorkton, SK. He went to school in Preeceville, SK and graduated from Sturgis Composite High School in 1975. He then went on to acquire his diploma in Paramedics from SAIT, and took training in Vermillion to become a Firefighter. Don then decided to take nursing and received his diploma at Keyano College. He was Deputy Chief at Fort McMurray Fire Department. After this, he went to Royal Roads University to obtain his MALT – Master of Arts in Leadership Training. He worked in many positions as a Regional Director, Executive Director, and Director of Patient Care at the QEII Hospital where he was employed at the time of his passing. His heart and soul was always in health care.

Don wore a smile that would brighten any room and was amazingly quick at making long lasting friends in any situation. He was always the first to offer a hand, ear, or a shoulder to anyone in need. He filled the world around him with compassion and love. He was very proud of his work and approached every workday with strength and purpose. Above all, he loved his sons and family more than anything.

Don will be sadly and forever missed by his sons: Jon-Michael and Kaelan Patrick; sister Shelley (Wade) Carlson of Saskatoon; niece Crystal (Jared) Gossen; nephews: Sean (Sara) Carlson and Justin Carlson; great-nephew Forrest Carlson; as well as numerous loved ones and many friends. He will also be missed by his faithful dog Migo.

He was predeceased by his father Francis Hunt, mother Georgina Hunt (Bailey), half-brother Gordon Lyons, sister Dawn Francine, and special friend Cathy Taylor.
