Just heard of this, and wanted to send my condolences to the Hunt family...I knew Neil from his visits to Mountain Eyecare in Hamilton and he was a wonderful and friendly gentleman - he will be missed.

Our thoughts and prayers to all the Hunt family member's, Mr Hunt and his family have been our summer neighbours for over fifty years. Mr. Hunt was a wonderful, warm, and funny gentleman. Loved the family gatherings we shared, loved the stories he told, loved the big hugs he gave the ladies. Will be greatly missed but never forgotten. Thanks for being a part of our lives.
Big hugs to all, we'll share our stories together on the beach or around the campfire.

My deepest Sympathy on Neil's passing I passed by the trailer in Southampton for more than 25 years while I was on the Police Force in Southampton I would always get a wave and would stop now and then for a chat I still drive that route and heard he had passed I will miss that friendly wave

Kathy and family

I want to express my condolences to you and your family. My late wife Johanne and I met your Dad circa 2005 while swimming at the foot of Island Street. There he was in his 80's , pacemaker and all living life to the fullest while devotedly caring for your mom as well. We invited him to dinner at our place in South and we visited him at his place on the mountain.
We later met you by chance when you worked retail at Limeridge Mall.
Your Dad was a wonderful man who faced adversity and loss with courage and gratitude. He has left a wonderful compass to guide you all.
You were fortunate to have him a good many years. While this does not ease the pain it is at least something to be thankful for.

We are so sorry to hear of Neil's passing. Unfortunately, we will be unable to attend the visitation/funeral service as we have to be out of town at that time. Our condolences go out to all of Neil's family. He was the good will ambassador for Island Street in Southampton, always so friendly and chatting with everyone who walked by. He will be missed.
