Daniel James Hunter, 30, died by accident at his home in Huntsville, Alabama on November 6, 2012.
James was the son of Marilyn East and her husband John Powers of Marion, and the late Daniel J. Hunter and his wife Sydney of Worcester. James leaves a large and loving family: his sister Kate Houdelette and her husband Gabriel of Marion, and his adored nieces Elizabeth and Caroline; his siblings Andrew, Amanda and Ben Hunter of Duxbury, Daniel Powers and Amanda Ellis of South Orleans and Nicholas Hemley Powers of Barnstable. His cohort of cousins are Jeffrey and Megan Boyd, Melissa Traenkle, Zachary Keir, Lindsay and Hannah Williams, Emily, Brittany and Samuel Jones, and Amy and Allie Hunter. His aunts and uncles are Lindy East and Richard Boyd, Deborah and John Keir, Elizabeth East and Douglas Williams, David and Shirley Hunter, Dan and Susan Jones.
A graduate of Barnstable High School and Universal Technical School, since 2007 James made his home in Alabama, where he became a southern gentleman and worked at Century Volvo. James was an animal lover, leaving behind his best friend, Daisy. He was a loyal friend, family man, and always kept everyone laughing.
The family plans a memorial for a later date.
