I was very sad last week to find out that Snooker’s much loved Paul Hunter passed away, after a year-long battle with cancer he died 5 days before his 28th birthday. I didn’t even know he had been ill, so to find out he was already gone was a bit of a shock.
3 times Masters champ, Hunter, was a very prolific man for the sport, and was hugely influential in gaining a younger audience and getting a bit of glam for the aging profession. He will be sadly missed and i feel for his wife and newly born daughter.
His funeral is this Thursday in Leeds Parish Church, where his coffin will lie in wake for two days prior.
