By Aaron Humes: A memorial Mass and official funeral will be held tomorrow, Wednesday, which would have been the late Frederick Hopkins “Fred” Hunter’s 94th birthday.

Hunter, known to his intimates as “Papi Freddy,” died on December 19 after a lengthy parliamentary and legislative career.

Fred Hunter served in the House of Representatives for Belize Rural North and preceding constituencies between 1961 and 1984, and at various times held portfolios as Deputy Minister in the Ministry of Public Works, the Minister of Agriculture, Lands, and Cooperatives, the Minister of Communications, and the Minister of Works, Port, and Harbour.

Hunter came from a distinguished family which included his brothers Alexander (“Sandy,” deceased), a fellow parliamentarian; Father Charles Hunter, S.J. (deceased); and sisters Nessie Burn and Sister Yvonne Marie RSM, also both deceased. He is survived by one living brother and sister and eight of 11 children, as well as 25 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren, and numerous other relatives and friends.

The funeral will take place at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Burrell Boom Village, Belize District, and will be televised.
