Passing of a diving Legend

Tue Aug 08, 2017 8:37 pm

A true diving legend of the Northeast has recently passed. Most divers in the St. Lawrence River region knew him as "Moe", but Donald Hunt was one of the diving pioneers of the area. I had known Moe for about 10-15 years. His history is colorful, and probably left as a legend, but he will best be remembered as the owner of Hunt's Dive Shop and owner of very successful commercial dive operation. A friend to all divers, Moe had a unique dive boat that catered to sport and tech divers. He will be missed.

Thanks for sharing Allan. Guys like this rarely get the recognition they deserve.
Doing it right should include some common sense, not just blindly following specs and instructions. .Gary D, AWAP on SB

I will always cherish my memories of Moe. I dove with him on at least two occasions and he truly was a 1000 Islands Legend.

It was a true pleasure to have known Moe. He will be remembered fondly as a diving legend in the Thousand Islands region.
