HUNTER, Liam Martyn

July 8, 1987 – Manchester, United Kingdom
March 10, 2019 – Grande Prairie, Alberta

It is with heavy hearts we announce that Liam Martyn Hunter of Calgary, AB passed away in Grande Prairie, AB on Sunday, March 10, 2019 at the age of 31.

Born and raised in the UK he immigrated to Canada with his family in 2000, aged thirteen. Liam took an immediate interest in all available sports such as volleyball, basketball, rugby and football. He was always a gifted athlete. At seventeen, Liam’s skills as a “kicker” and overall passion for football led him to Kings College at Western University in London, ON, where he studied English.
Following university in 2009, Liam followed an employment opportunity to Lake Louise, which ultimately led him to Calgary, where he met Hollie. Very quickly Liam and Hollie became a couple and set up home together with Emma and their dogs, Murphy and Joey. The most important thing to Liam in life was “his ladies”, Hollie and Emma. He was a loving partner to Hollie and doting father to Emma.

New employment opportunities took Liam into landscaping and ultimately into the oil and gas industry as a Roughneck working on drilling rigs across Alberta. It was his career as a Roughneck that took him to Grande Prairie, AB working twenty days at a time away from his family. The reward was a ten-day break which was spent at home with Hollie and Emma concentrating on family.
Liam’s exuberance and larger-than-life personality will be eternally missed by everyone.

Besides his beloved Fiancée Hollie, Liam is survived by his daughter Emma, parents, Ian and Melanie; siblings Bracken, Cameron and Casey and extended family and friends, both in England and in Calgary, Alberta.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY (Fish Creek, 14441 Bannister Road S.E., Calgary, AB) on Wednesday, March 20, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. If you can, you are encouraged to wear pink in memory of Liam. Reception to follow in the Hospitality Centre at the Funeral Home. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Liam Hunter, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek, 14441 Bannister Road S.E., Calgary, AB, T2X 3J3, Telephone: 403-256-9575.

    Incredibly sad to hear of Liam’s passing. I have incredibly fantastic memories of Liam’s incredible athleticism on the basketball floor and rugby pitch! His agility, speed and strength caught everyone’s eye who watched him. His booming kicks in rugby were awesome to watch!! Liam made us all laugh whenever he was with us! I wish his family all my condolences and strength as they work through this most difficult time. Know that Liam left an outstanding legacy at Bear Creek and he will always be remembered in the stories that we share!

  24. My deepest condolences to Hollie, Emma, and the Hunters. Liam was absolutely magnetic, the type of person who could light up a room. He was impossible to ignore with his charismatic smile and infectious laugh. The time I was lucky enough to spend with Liam left a lasting impression on my life. Our time together taught me important lessons about life and love, for which I will always be grateful. Liam was truly one of a kind and his memory will be cherished.

  27. Words cannot describe the hurt we are feeling. Liam was our son Clayton’s first high school friend. They connected from day one. Football was their sport, and they gave each other confidence. I believe that’s what made them the fine men they grew too be. It’s too bad they did’t stay connected. We remember Liam, so respectful. We enjoyed every moment with him. We can’t imagine the pain you’re feeling. Please know that our prayers are with you, and the memories you have of Liam can never be taken away.
    Go Bear Creek Kodiack’s, love ya Liam!

  32. To Liam’s family,

    I was shocked when I heard of your loss and I am truly sorry. I am an oilfield service hand that was lucky enough to work with Liam last summer, and in a short amount of time discovered what you all knew and were a part of: Liam was a hard working, respectful and fun loving character that was a joy to be around. My deepest condolences. He will be sorely missed.
