Lawrence Hunter Obituary

Of Wilkins Twp., formerly of East Liberty, age 85, passed away peacefully on Monday, January 29, 2024.

Born the son of the late Howard Hunter, Sr. and the late Mary (Walsh) Hunter.

Beloved husband of Donna J. (Loffredo) Hunter for 55 years.

Loving father of Tracy (fiancé, William Cronin) Kleber of Plum.

Dear brother of Dianne (Neil) Foran and Sandra Heckler.

Larry was a 1956 graduate of Pittsburgh Central Catholic High School.  He was employed as an industrial engineer for Mine Safety for over 45 years before retiring.  Larry enjoyed the friendships made working for Mine Safety through the bowling and softball leagues, it was also the place he met his soul mate in life, Donna. He was an avid fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers, and at one point was proud to say that he held season tickets right on the 50-yard line when the team played in Three Rivers Stadium.  Larry will forever be remembered for his devotion to his family, who meant more to his life than anything.  Although we are sad at the sudden passing of Larry, we can find joy in the happiness he shared with everyone he surrounded and the strength he portrayed.  As a way to keep Larry’s memory alive, next time you are at a party or special occasion, order a Manhattan Cocktail, it was his favorite.
