David Val Hunt, age 64, passed away on December 17, 2022 in West Jordan, UT.
Born April 5, 1958 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Valdon and LaVon Hunt. He married Julie Littleford on January 16, 1981 in the Salt Lake Temple. They welcomed four children; Tyler, Teri Jo, Tony Roy and Timothy Val.
David worked at Graybar Electric for over 30 years and was currently employed at WESCO Electric. He enjoyed golfing, basketball, Fantasy Football and playing poker. He loved spending time relaxing in the pool and more than anything, being with his family. As a devoted grandpa, his goal in life was to make sure his grandkids knew they were loved and he cherished every moment with them. They were his world, and the feeling was mutual.

David is survived by his mother Lavon Hunt, wife Julie Littleford Hunt, son Tyler Hunt (Janae), daughter Teri Jo Hunt Black (Donn), six grandchildren, brothers; John Hunt (Rebecca) and Scott Hunt (Tanya), sisters; Debra Martinsen (Stewart) and Suzanne Jacobs (Shawn).

I only knew Dave for a short three years as I bought product from him at WESCO, but in those three short years, I felt like I had gained a good friend although our relationship was business based. Dave always had a smile, or a witty comment, and I always enjoyed his visits to the warehouse.
Dave will be greatly missed; he was an amazing coworker and friend to all. I was thankful to have worked below him during my first years with WESCO as a brand-new member of the industry. He taught me so much and was always patient and kind while doing so. My life has been very blessed by Dave Hunt.
Julie and Family
Only word I can say to help comfort you in this time of need, is Dave was a great person always kind and giving never had a bad thing to say.
People like Dave are very few I will miss Dave's laugh and smile as I think anyone that knew Dave would.
May God be with you and comfort you.
Teri, sending my deepest sympathies to you and your Family. So very sorry for your loss.
I can only say that I was shocked to hear Dave passed away. Especially so close to Val's passing, and at our young age. Dave and I went through Jr. High and High School together. Had many good times playing sports together, classes, and church stuff as we were in the same stake. Dave always had a smile and had a great sense of humor, much like his dad's. While I haven't have too many interactions with him over the years since, every time I saw him Dave took the time to catch up and was always interested. And he still had that good humor. He will be missed. My condolences to his family.
I didn't know Dave very well, but I know his wife and if he was half as good a person as her, the family lost a real special person. The good news is that mortality is truly short in the eternal scheme of things and you will all be reunited soon.
Dave or DV as I prefer to call him was always the wittiest guy in the room. His personality was larger than life. DV made friends everywhere he went and always made everyone laugh. We’ve all been greeted by DV with a big “Whats Happening” a special nickname he gave you, a warm smile and a hug.
I never heard DV complain, I never heard him say a disparaging word and I never saw him miss a put.
Deanna I last saw Dave & Julie in August when they visited us in Albuquerque for some golf, site seeing and of course an Imagine Dragons concert. I’m grateful for our friendship and I will miss him dearly.
I know he’s looking down on us and watching over his family.
I love and miss you DV.
Julie and family, we were so sorry to hear of Dave's passing. Even though we were unable to be there in person, please know how much you are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Love you cous.
Growing up with Dave's brother Scott, I'll always remember the love Dave and the Hunt family showed me. You can only imagine the pain a kid brother and his friends could cause but Dave was always there as your friend too.
Dave carried that love and respect with him always as he afforded it to my kids and nephews on the golf course. Being great golfers like Dave provided a bond that carried down to them as well. We will miss our time on the course, I'll miss watching Skit's teams with him but most of all I'll miss his friendship.
I only hope for Peace and Love for Julie and the Hunt family.
Julie and family,
We were so very sorry to hear of DV’s passing. As so many have stated he had a larger than life personality and the best sense of humor. Even though we didn’t see him often, when we did see him it was as though no time had gone by.
Sending hugs and prayers to you.
My heart is broken for your family and hope you feel the love and support of many who love you and loved Dave. My favorite memory of Dave is from my teenage years when we had a Sunday School Christmas party at the house, during church haha! I loved it! To this day, I remember feeling loved by both Julie and Dave for so many of those important growing up years. Thank you both for the service, examples, and love you’ve shared over the years. May you find peace in Christ during this difficult time and know you are all loved by many.
Condolences and love, Katy
I send my condolences to Julie and family. He was a good husband, father and friend. The Utes won’t be the same without one of their favorite fans.
A great friend and he will be missed. I appreciate you lending him out to me to be a golf partner.
Oh dearest Julie and Family, my heartfelt condoences as you navigate this time. Dave was/is such a sweetheart with the greatest smile and laugh. I was so touched by his outward display of affection to you Julie, his children and precious grandchildren. I will be watching from Pittsburgh...love you all, Ruth
Dave is the best! I have so many awesome memories of “Graybar Dave”. May he Rest In Peace, and may his wife and family have comfort in their mourning. He was a great example and a fine man. Headed home to the big clubhouse above!!
