Obituary for Max Dee Hunsaker

Our loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, son, brother, uncle and friend, Max Dee Hunsaker, passed away peacefully in his sleep.

Max, age 79, was born on March 20, 1939 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Oscar Fitzallen Hunsaker and Sussanna “Susie” Mathison. He married his sweetheart Kathleen Urry on October 9, 1957 in Elko, NV. They later had their marriage solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple. They met while working at Albertson’s grocery store. Max worked in the meat department and Kathleen was a meat wrapper. He went on to be a manager at Safeway grocery store before purchasing his father’s grocery store, Hunsaker’s Market in West Valley City. Max eventually renamed it to Max Hunsaker and Son’s Meat Cutting and Distributing.

Max enjoyed serving his Heavenly Father. He is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He served in many capacities as Scout Master, Counselor in Bishoprics, High Councilman, and Home Teacher. He especially loved serving the youth. He received the Silver Beaver for his many hours of dedication and love to the Scouting program.
