        Thomas William Hunter, 74, loving husband, devoted dad, and better known as “Grampy”, passed away on Thanksgiving day, November 24, 2016 at St. Joseph’s Hospital surrounded by his loving family.  He was the son of Agnes and Thomas Hunter of Syracuse. Tom was a life long resident of the Syracuse area. He graduated from St. Lucy’s School in 1960 and shortly thereafter, began working at New Process Gear, where he worked for forty years at his trade of tool and die maker. It was early on at St. Lucy’s where he met the eventual love of his life, Karen Ann Campbell. The two were married on October 7, 1967 and enjoyed thirty-nine years of marriage together. Having created a large and wonderful family with Karen, Dad was able to enjoy his retirement with his five children, nine grandchildren, family, many friends, neighbors and grand-dogs. Dad showed the true meaning of being a father by putting his family first, working through challenges, and celebrating the many blessings that could not have been made without him. Dad was a person who had strong convictions and beliefs, but what always led him was the continued devotion he had for the Lord, Karen, and the happiness of his family. We would like to thank the nurses at St. Joseph’s Hospital for their wonderful care, thoughtful-ness, and dedication to Dad.
Tom was predeceased by his wife, Karen, in 2006. 
Surviving are his five children: Maureen Williams (Kevin) of Richmond, VA, Colleen, Michael (Terrie) of Trumansburg, Patrick (Cora) of Lansing, and Mary Kathleen Prior (Joshua) of Bensalem, PA; nine grandchildren: Bridget, Brandon, Brennan, Bernadette, Ian, Lucas, Jermaine, Sahara and Victoria; brother Ed, his nieces and nephew, and great neighbors Paul and Doris.

Why choose Whelan Bros. & Hulchanski?

...Because Our Family is Your Family...
Family Owned vs. Corporate Owned

    When choosing a funeral home, you may want to research whether or not the business is owned by a local family or run by a large corporation.
There is a difference.
    During the past twenty years, publicly-owned corporations have been consolidating the funeral business similarly to what has occurred in other businesses. Recently, this trend has reversed because the corporate-owned funeral homes have simply not measured up to the service that families receive from family-owned funeral homes.
    For generations funeral services have been provided by local families who have deep roots in their community. When dealing with such an important event in your families life, turning to a funeral director whom you know and trust can make a world of difference.
      Whelan Bros. & Hulchanski Funeral Home is the best in the business. We will give you the personal attention, outstanding professionalism, and caring that you deserve.  We will be there for you after the funeral is over to provide you the extra support that only generations of service can cultivate. 



Whelan Bros. & Hulchanski Funeral Home has been family owned & operated locally since 1933.
