In Celebration of

Philip Claude Huint

February 1, 1949 -  July 12, 2020

Sadly, on July 12th, 2020, Phil Huint (71 years) passed away suddenly and unexpectedly from cardiac arrest at the MUHC Royal Victoria Hospital.
Phil was born on February 1, 1949 in Montreal to Annette (Allard) and John Huint.
The early years of his career were spent working in youth care, where he was also very involved in union activities. He went on to work in Human Resource Management in health and social services for the remainder of his career. In 1999 he received a Master of Science degree in Administration from Concordia University.
He is survived by his loving wife of 37 years, Jennifer, and by his brother Richard, his sister-in-law, Doreen, and his brother-in-law, Gary.
He will be deeply missed and remembered fondly by all who knew him.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the limitations this imposes, a Celebration of Life will be planned when the situation allows.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to De Tout Coeur, Fonds de Cardiologie CUSM / Open Your Heart, MUHC Cardiology Fund,
