Hoonah resident Floyd Curtis Hunt died April 11, 2009. He was 51.
Born Jan. 26, 1958, in Prosser, Wash., he grew up in Juneau. He was in the class of 1976 and graduated from Juneau-Douglas High School in 1977. He moved to Hoonah in the early 1980s and lived there until his death.
He was a commercial fisherman for many years and was considered a "highliner," fishing the Don A. He also was an avid hunter and often hunted by proxy for elders in Hoonah to help provide them with winter food. He was helpful to his family and friends and will be deeply missed by all who knew him, they said.
He was preceded in death by his sister, Susan Turie Hunt, in 1964; and father, Brownie Hunt, in 2003.
He is survived by his mother, Clara (Jean) Hunt; sisters, Pam Hunt and husband, Dale Lockwood, of Colt Island, and Shelley (Hunt) McNurney and husband, Denis McNurney, of Kingston, Wash.; and brother, Brownie A. Hunt Jr., of Anchorage.
Services will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Sunday, April 26, at the Alaska Native Brotherhood Hall in Hoonah.
