I knew Al as a young man in Foxboro. He drove a modest car and had an appreciation for the local girls; they also had an appreciation for Al. He was a very cute guy w a sweet personality. I’m glad to hear of his loving family and a productive career with time for community baseball coaching. May he Rest In Peace.

I can't think about my childhood and playing baseball and hockey without thinking of Mr. Hunt. From Little League through high school he was a man that always put us kids first and helped give us the opportunity to grow up in a care free world where sports was our main priority. There are a handful of men in my life that helped shape me as a person and exemplified what one's priorities should be - Mr. Hunt was one of them. We're all better adults for having Mr. Hunt in our lives as kids. Rest peacefully and know that you made a difference.

Dereyth, I am sad to hear of the passing of your Dad. My condolences to you and your Family. Al was a wonderful man who brightened the lives of those who were fortunate enough to know him. I have many, many fond memories of Al. Were shared a common love of the game of baseball. Most, if not all of our conversations, ended with a hearty laugh. God rest your soul Al, you were a very special man. I admire you and the way you lived your life.

Al was the most wonderful neighbor, friend, and adopted grandfather for our daughter Juliya. His marriage to pat was enviable, the twinkle in his eye always made us happy, and Tim LOVED talking baseball with him. We will sorely miss him on Ledge Rd. Love to Dereyth, Kayla, and Raegan.
