HUNTER, Stephen Robert

July 7, 1957 - January 16, 2024

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Steve Hunter of East Garafraxa. Steve spent his early years in Erindale where he was raised by his mother Doris Hunter (Hendry) (1996), and his Uncle, Ralph Hendry (2006). Steve was predeceased by his wife, Jan Grice (2023). They happily worked side by side on their farm for many years and raced their quarter horses at Ajax Downs Racetrack. Every day was a struggle since her passing in September. Steve was the proud father of Todd (Michelle), Dave (2017) (Hollee), and brother to Randy (Sue). He was grandfather to Raeanne, Noah, Asha, Conner, Ethan, & Hailee and uncle to Eric (Victoria) & Devan. He will be remembered by is many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Steve leaves behind many friends from the horse racing community. Both he and Jan were so passionate about the care and training of their horses. A Celebration of Steve’s Life will be held at the Erin Legion, 12 Dundas St. E. on April 6, from 1 to 4pm. In Lieu of flowers, kindly consider donating to The Upper Credit Humane Society ( to reflect Steve’s love of animals. There will be a donation box available at the celebration.
