Obituary Condolences

S. Hunter ENG Hunter passed on at age 61. He was born in Hudson, NY in February 1950 to Fred and Ruth Eng. He was preceded in death by his parents and brothers Peter and Fred Jr., and sister Laura. He graduated from Thomas More School in New Hampshire, and attended the University of Washington, where he earned his BS degree in Construction Engineering. He also earned a MS in Civil Engineering from Stanford University. For Hunter, skiing was not just a hobby; it was a religion.He moved from New York to Washington in 1971, because "The best skiers are all from Crystal Mountain." He worked as a professional ski patroller at his beloved Crystal Mountain and was an original member of the infamous Sunnyside Sliders. Recently he was inducted into the US Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame as one of the pioneers of freestyle skiing. He heroically fought liver cancer for two years, never letting it slow him down. His favorite saying was,"If I didn't know I had cancer, I wouldn't know I had cancer!" Hunter was always the fastest one down the mountain, and once again he beat us all, this time to his final resting place. Ski in peace. A loving husband and father, Hunter is survived by his wife of 36 years, Chris, daughters Laura, Elissa and Wylie, and brothers Michael and Tony. A Celebration of Life for friends and family will be held Saturday April 23rd at 2:30 pm at the Mercer Island Beach Club, 8326 Avalon Drive, Mercer Island, WA.
