Alfred Barnes Hunter passed away peacefully on March 24, 2020 at his home in West Jordan, Utah after many years of fighting multiple myeloma and heart disease. He was born on April 12, 1941 in Idaho Falls, Idaho to Alfred Walker and Francis Barnes Hunter. \r\nAl graduated from Idaho Falls High School in 1959 and served a mission in the Central Atlantic States Mission. He spent a summer semester at the University of Utah and graduated from Utah State University with a bachelor degree in accounting. While at USU Al met and married Elaine Pocock on August 25, 1965 in the Idaho Falls Temple. \r\nAfter graduation Al and Elaine drove to Detroit, Michigan where he worked for Ford Motor Credit Company for 8 years, the final year spent as an auditor traveling all over the US auditing Ford dealerships. While living in Detroit Al served two stake missions. When he got tired of being away from the family they packed up and moved to Idaho Falls where he worked at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory (INEL) for the next 24 years when he retired in 2001. \r\nAl passed his love of basketball, tennis and skiing and all the skills and fun that come along with them to his kids. There was always fun to be had when there was a basketball and a hoop around. He was a natural do-it-yourselfer and loved to fix and build things, which he passed on to his kids. He also passed on his kindness and gentle ways. Al loved his children and grandchildren and cherished any time he could spend with them. \r\nAl was a lifelong member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and loved the gospel. He served faithfully in many positions, honored his priesthood and left this earth with a strong testimony. Al loved geneology- the research, the wonder and the discovery of his and others’ ancestors. \r\nAfter taking an early retirement Al bought his dream pickup and fifth-wheel and he and Elaine saw the country. When all their kids and grandkids ended up living in Utah they sold their home in Idaho Falls and moved to West Jordan. Moving to Utah provided Al and Elaine the opportunity to complete three service missions and serve as ordinance workers in the Jordan River Temple. \r\nEarly in his retirement years Al took up golf and spent many, many hours perfecting his swing and trying to pass that skill on to anyone who would pick up a club. \r\nAl is survived by his lifelong companion, Elaine, children Jennifer, Corey, Chris (Rene) and Jeremy, nine grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, his sister, Linda (Clyde) Wilkinson and their family. He is preceded by his parents, Alfred W. and Francis V. Hunter and his in-laws Ray and Maurine Pocock, Renee Graham, Norma Ashton, Ralph and John Pocock.\r\nAl will be laid to rest in the South Jordan City Cemetery in a private family service. The family would like to thank the countless friends and family members who have so generously donated their time, love and kindness. A special thank you to the doctors and nurses at The Utah Cancer Center, the many doctors and nurses in the ER and the Telemetry Unit at Jordan Valley Hospital, Dr. Sborov and his incredible team at The Huntsman Cancer Center and the wonderful people at Symbii Hospice.
