2006 Sun losses

This year marks the fifth anniversary for a number deaths in the Toronto Sun Family, including the loss of sports legend Jim "Shaky" Hunt five years ago today.

Hunt, who was 79, died from a heart attack, leaving a legacy of 50 years in journalism, most of those years writing and talking about sports at the Toronto Star, CKEY and the Toronto Sun.

Our memories of Hunt include his broad smile and a hearty, infectious laugh that carried from the sports department to most other departments at 333.

Hunt covered the 1972 Canada-Russia hockey series and also held the enviable record of attending every Grey Cup game from 1949 to 1999.

Other 2006 Toronto Sun vet losses included Bob MacDonald on Feb. 26; Percy Rowe on March 7; Cam Norton April 14; Mike McCabe on May 30 and McKenzie Porter on Oct. 30.
