Arthur Hunter

(CNS Local Life): Funeral services were held Saturday, 1 December, for Arthur Hunter, who died suddenly last month at age 82. An icon in both the legal and financial services industry, his death has been met by tributes throughout the community. Founder of the law firm Hunter and Hunter with his father in 1965, Arthur Hunter was credited for his role in the development of Cayman’s financial services industry, along with Bill Walker and Sir Vassel Johnson.

Acknowledging those efforts in a statement on Hunter’s death, the Cayman Islands Legal Practitioners Association (CILPA) spoke of his commitment to the legal profession. “A pioneer of the industry in Cayman, Mr Hunter worked tirelessly throughout his career in establishing Cayman as the thriving international financial centre it is today,” CILPA said. “Mr Hunter was a well known and loved member of the legal profession and of the community.”

The statement continued, “His legacy continues, not only through Cayman’s prosperous legal profession which he founded, but with his son Bryan Hunter following in his footsteps as a well known member of the legal profession in his own right.”

Earlier, in the Legislative Assembly on Thursday, 22 November, after news of Hunter’s passing broke, Premier Alden McLaughlin said, “He was concerned always about Cayman and its future,” adding he was “quiet, soft-spoken, very intelligent and deeply insightful”.

Leader of the Opposition Ezzard Miller noted Hunter’s “determined yet quiet resolve and in his own way, contributed to keeping the good ship Cayman on an even keel”.
