Legislators have paid homage to a true Cayman legal luminary, Arthur Hunter.
As news of his sudden passing broke on Thursday (22 November) MLAs not only acknowledged Mr. Hunter’s contribution to Cayman’s legal fraternity, but his unweaving commitment to making this country an enviable nation filled with prosperity.
“He was concerned always about Cayman and its future. He was quiet, soft-spoken, very intelligent and deeply insightful,” said Premier Hon. Alden McLaughlin.
It was a view shared by Opposition Leader Hon. Ezzard Miller.
“He has always had a determined, yet quiet resolve, and in his own way keeping the good ship Cayman on an even keel,” said Mr. Miller.
House Speaker Hon. McKeeva Bush also commended Mr. Hunter for his contribution to building Cayman.
Mr. Hunter was 82.
Late Tuesday (27 November) his son Bryan shared that the family did not want to make a statement.
However, he said, Mr. Hunter’s funeral service is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, 1 December, at Elmslie Memorial United Church and is open to the public.
