MacPherson, Hunter Hugh

Jun 14, 2022

We are heartbroken that our brightest light is gone from our lives. Much beloved son of Ronnie MacPherson and Birdeen Grant. He was the best son that any parents could ask for. The ‘GOAT.’ ( Greatest Of All Time). Ronnie was Hunter’s ultimate hero, role model and all-around super Dad! And Birdeen was the most loving, caring and dedicated mother a boy could have. Hunter was very close with his four uncles, John MacPherson, Hugh Grant, Gordon MacPherson and Tom MacPherson. Dearly loved by his aunts, Joanne MacPherson (like a second mom), Cathy Grant, Pat MacPherson, Lorraine Grant, Kathleen Grant and Christine Swanson. Deeply missed by his cousins by blood but sisters at heart, Shawna, Brittny and Mareena MacPherson. Along with, Blaire West (loving babysitter but as Hunter would say “quit following me”), Leah Wall and Ross Grant. More great MacPherson cousins Malcolm (the best big brother ever), Meghan, Dan, Rachel, Lauren, Tarah, Kaitlyn and Chelsey. Born and raised on the family dairy farm, Hunter was a true country boy at heart. Most recently Hunter was excelling at helping to manage the new cow-calf beef operation and he was always more than happy to help in the fields. Although school was not Hunter’s favourite pastime, he made it all the way through, from his early Montessori days to Laggan Public, Glengarry District High School (capturing the GOLD at OFSAA soccer – so proud!) and finally Algonquin College. His first real career job was with Sproule Power Line and he truly loved it. A special thank you for giving him the opportunity, for welcoming him into your family and for taking great care of him. A real classy crew. From a very young age, Hunter was happy to spend most of his life in an arena or on a soccer pitch. The hockey community is very extensive and one of the best. To all of his countless hockey and soccer coaches and teammates – thank you for helping him along the way. Hunter absolutely loved his Ottawa Senators and any chance to go watch a game. If friends were gold, Hunter was the richest person in the world. So many, you know who you are. He deeply cherished all of you! Our bright light will shine forever in our hearts and above to help guide us. A private memorial service will be held at a later date. Arrangements are under the care and direction of the Munro & Morris Funeral Homes Ltd., 114 Main St. South, Alexandria (613-525-2772). As expressions of sympathy Memorial Donations to the CHEO Foundation or to the charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family. Condolences may be made online at
