Hunter's true essence, however, was found in the warmth of his heart and the laugh that he gave freely. He had a compassionate spirit that resonated with those around him. Friends and family remember him for his love of reading, the outdoors, and creative writing, reflecting his life's unique and beautiful tapestry.
Hunter Blaine is survived by his wife, Kylie Brown Blaine; mother, Lisa Hunter Blaine; his father, Darrell Blaine; his sister, Jarilyn Blaine; his brother, William Blaine; his grandfather, Jerry Hunter; his grandmother, Corene Callahan; who will forever hold onto the precious memories and lessons imparted by his presence. He is also remembered fondly by a wide circle of extended family, friends, and colleagues who share in the grief of this profound loss.
The family expresses their deepest gratitude to all those who supported and cared for Hunter Blaine throughout his life.
Hunter is remembered through his favorite Bible verse, Matthew 6:33, "But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you."
