Glen Wayne Hunt
1954 ~ 2020
Glen Wayne Hunt returned to his Heavenly Father August 10, 2020, surrounded by his loving family after a short battle with Pancreatic Cancer.
Wayne was the second born of eight children, on October 10, 1954 in Murray Utah, to Glen Whitaker Hunt and Patricia Giolas Hunt. He spent his early childhood in Salt Lake City until his parents moved to East Layton, Utah. After graduating from Layton High School, he served two years in the Ecuador, Quito mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
In the spring of 1982, Wayne married his sweetheart, Denise Jepsen, in the Salt Lake Temple. Together they raised three amazing children, during their 38 years of marriage.
After working many years as a forklift driver, he returned to night school and graduated from Weber State University with a bachelor's degree in Information Syst
Wayne loved the Gospel of Jesus Christ and served faithfully in various callings. Serving in the nursery was one of his favorites and was lovingly known as "Grandpa". He loved reading and camping with his family. He was an avid fan of BYU basketball and football, as well as the Utah Jazz and Green Bay Packers. Wayne was a vocal defender of freedom and truth, and instilled these beliefs in his children.
Wayne is survived by his wife, Denise, his children, Jason (Janae), Chris (Michelle), and Carly, as well as five grandchildren. Also survived by his sisters Patricia and Laurie (Fred), and brothers Gary, Keith (Antonella), Jim (Liisa), Russell (Corinne), and Bryce. Wayne was preceded in death by his parents.
