Some sad news; last night Ian Hunt passed away. He was 94 and our oldest employee.
Ian joined Hunt & Hunt on his return from serving overseas in the Royal Australian Airforce during the Second World War. He was admitted to practice as a solicitor on 5 May 1950, 69 years ago.
Ian has served the firm, its clients and the community throughout his working life.
Ian’s incredible life of service to the community was recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours in June 2002 when he was awarded the Order of Australia Medal. The citation reads:
“For service to the community through a range of church, health care, social welfare and aged care organisations.”
On behalf of all the partners and staff, we extend to his daughter Barbie, brother David Hunt, and all the Hunt family our deepest sympathy and thanks for the life and work of Ian Sinclair Hunt.
