Obituary

Hunter Eugene Carbee, age 65 of Greenfield, passed away peacefully in his home after a short and courageous battle with cancer on January 6, 2022. He was loved by so many. He was born in Peterborough on January 30, 1956. He was the son of Sheldon and Beverly (Bacall) Carbee.

Hunter was raised in Greenfield, NH. He was amongst the first graduating class from ConVal Regional High School. He started logging shortly after graduation, with Donnie Hardwick, and continued until he was injured in 1987. After this, he decided to go back to school and graduated from Thompson School of Forestry with a degree in 1992. 

He was employed with Foreco beginning in 1992 and stayed there until 1999, when he began working for New Hampshire Timberland Owner’s Association (NHTOA).  In 2005 he started his employment with North Country Procurement and continued his work there until recently. He loved his work in the forestry industry.  In 2004 he was awarded the "Outstanding Contributions to Forest Industry Education Award" and in 2008 he was chosen for the NHTOA Outstanding Forest Activist Award. In 2021 he was named Outstanding Forester of the Year by the Northeastern Logger's Association.  Hunter was dedicated and hardworking and a true asset to the logging industry.   He loved his career and shared his love for the woods to all who knew him.  

In his later years, Hunter took over the family Christmas Tree Farm, and he built it to where it is today.   

Hunter is survived by his son Justin Carbee and wife Gabrielle Carbee and their three children of Colorado, daughter Alison Hobart and husband Frank Hobart and their four children of NH, and son Chad Carbee and partner Lynda Shipley of Washington State/Canada. He is also survived by his partner of 14 years, Marcia Davis of Greenfield NH, brother Scott Carbee and wife BJ of Francestown, sister Sherry Anderson and husband August Anderson of Gardner MA, along with his nephew Ozzie Anderson and niece Elke Anderson.

Hunter was a wonderful father, grandfather, brother, and friend and will be missed by all.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to New Hampshire Timberland Owner's Association (NHTOA).

A celebration of Hunter’s life will be announced at a later date.
