Albert V. Hunt of Middle Grove died peacefully surrounded by his family on March 18, 2012 at his home after a brief battle with Cancer. He was 67 years old.
Born on June 13, 1944 in Batavia, NY, he was the son of the late Albert V. Hunt and Helen Curtin Hunt.
Mr. Hunt was a graduate of Notre Dame High School in Batavia, class of 1962. From high school, he earned his Bachelor's degree from the University of Buffalo. He married his wife, Anita Cappiello, on July 2, 1966. He then earned his Master in Education from St. Michael's College in Vermont. Upon graduation, he was hired by the Niskayuna School District where he worked as a 6th grade teacher for over 32 years. Albert was a dedicate educator who believed it couldn't be considered work if you enjoyed it as much as he did! During his time at Niskayuna, he earned his second Master's degree from the University at Albany.
In addition to his years in education, Albert and his wife, Anita, owned and operated Atlas Pool Company in Ballston Spa for over 20 years. Upon retirement from the school district and selling his business, Mr. Hunt worked for NYRA as a security guard. Albert thoroughly enjoyed his work with the Saratoga Race Course, especially during the track meet when his position at the track was guarding and overseeing the VIP Lounge and Press Box within the track. Albert felt very fortunate to have such diverse yet fulfilling careers throughout his life. Mr. Hunt was also fond of traveling, especially to the Caribbean.
Survivors include his wife of over 46 years, Anita Hunt of Middle Grove, a son, Robert A. Hunt of Rochester, NY and his wife Heather, two daughters, Danielle Pelham and her husband Michael of Houston TX, and Renee H. Carollo and her husband Matthew of Middle Grove, NY. He is also survived by his 7 grandchildren, Mattalyn, Sydney and Ava Carollo, Nicholas and Zachary Pelham and Briton and Porter Hunt.
In lieu of flowers a memorial donation can be made in his memory to The Michael Napoleone Memorial Foundation, Inc P.O. Box 267, Batavia, NY 14021-0267 or The Brave Will Foundation, 371 Schauber Road, Ballston Lake, NY 12019.
A time of reflection will be held on March 22 at 6:30 pm at the Tunison Funeral Home, 105 Lake Ave. Saratoga Springs, NY 12866. Family and friends may visit from 5-6:30 prior to this time.
A private burial will be at Middle Grove Cemetery the following day.
