Always kind, accepting and had a smile for everyone.
Dave was one of the great ones. Considered him a friend he will be missed. My prayers are with his family. Thanks for sharing an amazing person.
The staff at Murray Parkway Golf Course would like to pass on our condolences to the Hunt family. Dave was well loved at our golf course. We always enjoyed his sense of humor and his friendship. Our men's league will miss him immensely. He was a great golfer, but he was an even better man and friend. Rest in peace big guy.
We lived in the same neighborhood and ward with Dave and Julie Hunt for over 30 years. They have always been good friends. Every time we saw Dave, we could plan on laughing. He had such a friendly personality, and he loved to laugh and make others laugh. I can't imagine Dave ever being mad at anyone, and I never heard of anyone being upset with him. He was steady, friendly, caring, funny, and a warm personality. His passing was a real shock to us. We mourn his loss. We love him, and we will miss him! Julie, we also love you and your family, and we hope you feel our love and support.
I've got a few things to review with ya big guy. First off, you always made me laugh. You always made me feel welcome, I always felt loved and looked after for my entire life.We had a hard couple years, but you and Julie both made sure that didn't matter. And that NOW... now is the time to focus on. Friendships can last forever. Love can win.
I will miss you so much. To see you walking in and asking how we've been, hows things down south, and that you are so glad we came over.
You've made your mark here, and I will be forever thankful that you loved me, and my kids. And you made sure we knew that before we walked out the door.
Our history has a lot of chapters. You've never changed. You were always there.
And as always... you're favorite way to tease me. Is this yours???
Dave and I were mission companions in Ecuador, we really enjoyed being companions. We continued that friendship for a few years later playing basketball and enjoying a few laughs. Sadly we lost track of each other over time though I did think about him from time to time.
I remember Dave's quiet laugh and sense of humor.
I am sorry to hear of his passing, man where did the time go?
Dave was the best, I still have several photos of us together in Ecuador that I cherish.
Peace and love to his family. See you on the other side brother!
Dave, you will be missed! Thanks for always being such a great friend! We had some fun times working together at Graybar. You make a room light up with laughter and fun. Till we meet again!
Our hearts are with you during these trying times. Dave was a wonderful man and I truly adore his wife Julie. From our family to yours we send our angels and our prayers. May his journey be one of peace and love!
