Death of H.B. Hunt
Again the hand of death has settled in our midst and removed from us one of the oldest, best known and most highly respected citizens.
When the fact became known on Friday that H.B. Hunt had passed away, a deep grief seemed to settle over the whole town. It was the topic of conversation with everyone, and many were the expressions of deep regret heard on all sides.
Henry Branscombe Hunt was born in the County of Prince Edward, near Comsecon, his father being a prosperous farmer of that community. The early part of his life was spent there, where he was married to Jessie, daughter of the late Geo. Jones. He occupied a seat in the county council for a number of years. After his marriage he moved to Port Huron, where he worked at his trade, that of a carpenter.
Leaving Port Huron he came to Gore Bay in the year 1878. During his first year here he worked at the carpenter work, building the Ocean House, which he leased later. Under his able management the business of this house prospered and was made one of the best public places in Ontario. It was in the Ocean house his wife died in the month of April, 1884. By this marriage two of a family were born, being Mr. Herbert Hunt and Mrs. Sutherlandf (sic) of Sault Ste. Marie. The land on which the English church stands was donated by the deceased, as well as the first organ installed in the church, the material for the church being given by W.H. Baxter and Hiram Heckert.
Two years later the late Mr. Hunt was married to Miss Lottie Wright, of Gore Bay, who with two sons, B. and Will, survives him. Upon leaving the Ocean house he purchased the Queens which he run for a number of years. When he moved to Manitowaning to manage the Hotel Manitou, of that place, which was owned by a Toronto syndicate, and which was burned a few years ago.
While in Manitowaning his health began to fail him and he was forced to give up the hotel business, returning to Gore Bay where he spent the remaining days of his life. He was town constable here for a number of years. In fact this was practically the last active work he was able to do.
During the last six months he had been unable to leave the house, and never laid down in bed. He was a man of very large stature, weighing at one time over four hundred and fifty pounds and being six feet five inches tall. Death was due to cardiac dropsy, resulting from fatty degeneration of the heart. He suffered untold agony during the last few months and death must have come as a relief. He was 70 years, five months and ten days old.
The funeral was held on Sunday and was in charge of the Masonic Order, of which he was a member, and was one of the largest ever seen in Gore Bay. The service at the house was conducted by the Rev. Mr. Tate. The pall bearers were W.H. Hurst, J.H. Biehl, T.R. Lougheed, Wm. Thorburn, Dave Beattie and John M. Fraser.
The sincerest sympathy goes out to Mrs. Hunt and family in their bereavement.
