Obituary for Geoffrey Aaron Hunter

Geoffrey Aaron  Hunter
Born to his joyful life on February 4th, 1988, it is with heavy hearts we announce the death of Geoffrey Aaron Hunter of Pukalani on March 30th, 2017. Geoff is the beloved son of Jan and Ross Hunter, and beloved brother of Reid Hunter, Jenna Hunter and her wife Analise Farmer. A pilot Captain employed by American Medical Response, Geoffrey embodied a life well-lived in every way that matters most. Our grief at his loss is immeasurable.

After a childhood in California, one of Geoff's life dreams came true when he moved from Ojai to Maui with his close-knit family at age fifteen. Geoff's calm, open-minded, and responsible personality led him to embrace every gift Maui offered him throughout his high school years. After completing aeronautical training in Australia he experienced dropping skydivers and patrolled Australian shores for sharks from the skies. Geoff's dreams remained as admirably well-balanced as his beautiful life-spirit. He wanted to go as far as possible in his professional life as a pilot without the sacrifice of time with his family and friends. Geoff took the islands in from the sky, the land, the surf and the ocean blue.

His father remembers the exact moment--on a family trip to Hilo when Geoff was a child--when he knew his eldest son was a waterman born and bred. A highly skilled and experienced spear-fisherman and free-diver, Geoff lived as much of his adult life under the ocean's surface as he did on land or in the skies, sharing these passions with his dad, his brother, and several of his closest friends.

Geoff's can-do attitude toward life was matched by his old-souled appreciation for family, friendship, community, and the simple pleasures of existence. By nature a cool, life-loving man, Geoff was also an avid surfer, gardener, accomplished cook, artist and enthusiastic adventure traveler. He owned a home and shared great joy with his mom in making his home inviting and unique, the perfect place to entertain as often did. When he wasn't preparing delicious meals with his sister Jenna and brother Reid, you'd find Geoff helping his dad build houses, fixing up his truck, and enjoying surf trips and epic camping with his best friends, too many to list. He experienced true love. He was a fantastic listener and he helped to make those around him even greater people than already are.

Geoff adored his close-knit family, who will love, treasure, and miss him forever. He lived his dream everyday. A memorial celebration of Geoff's life will take place on Sunday April 9th at 9:00 in the morning at Ho’okipa Point.
