Obituary

Donald “Don” Dean Hunter, 80, passed away Tuesday, December 1, 2020 in Dallas, Texas. Born in Rensselaer, Indiana, Don was the son of the late Orville and Velma Hunter. Don graduated from Morocco High School, where he was football team captain his senior year and was given the outstanding senior athlete award. “This award covers much more than just athletic participation with scholastic ability and citizenship being a big factor in it and it went to one of the finest boys we have the privilege of calling friend, Donald Hunter.” He earned his masters degree in education from Ball State, where he also played football. Don taught math at North Side High School from 1967-2002. He was known to all as a Football and Wrestling Coach, with the goal to teach and minister to student athletes and their families. He helped with all sports, even in retirement. In 1998, Don was named as an assistant coach for the Indiana State All Star football game and in 2005 was named to the Indiana High School Wrestling Hall of Fame. He enjoyed watching his grandchildren play volleyball, soccer, drums and dance. He played euchre and golf - one of them well.

Surviving are his wife of 59 years, Judith Hunter; daughters, Sabra (Dirk) Rowley, Fonda (Barry) Ivy; grandchildren, Moriah (Joshua) Lederman, Teagan Rowley, Noah Rowley, Jasmyne Ivy, Isaiah Ivy; great-grandchildren, Hudson Lederman, Oliver Lederman, Harper Lederman; siblings, John (Donna) Hunter, Max Hunter, and Gretchen Swallow.

I taught across the hall from Don at North Side for 20 years. I learned a lot from him, although I didn't realize all of it until years later. His wit and wisdom will remain with me for years. So sorry for your loss.
