Ronald William Hunt, 51, of Riverton, Utah, died Wednesday, November 27, 2019 in a fatal car accident near Willard, Utah. He was born April 11, 1968 in Rexburg, Idaho, to Ronald F. Hunt and Susan (Hunt) Baade. He spent most of his childhood in Fairbanks, Alaska, and also lived in Hawaii, Kansas and Oklahoma before moving to Utah.\r\n\r\nHe left behind his beautiful wife, Christie Jensen Hunt, the love of his life. They were married in the Salt Lake Temple on November 5, 2016. Though married for only three years, Ron and Christie felt they had known one another for centuries. He is survived by his son Ronald S. Hunt; mother Susan Baade and step-father Lyle Baade, father Ronald F. Hunt and step-mother Lynn Perry; sisters Jennifer B. Hunt (Adam Guerra), Mary S. Mears (Kevin), Kieran Magaña (Jeff); brother Ian Hunt; step-brother Matthew Baade (Trudy) and step-sister Sarah Baade (Joshua Salmons); and many beautiful nephews, nieces, cousins and extended family that he loved with all his heart.\r\n\r\nEducation was very important to Ron. He graduated from Wichita State University with a bachelors degree in Computer Science and was completing a dual Masters in Business Administration and IT Management at Webster University. He worked as a computer scientist for the Department of Defense at Hill Air Force Base in Layton, Utah.\r\n\r\nRon was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He served as a full time missionary in the New York Rochester mission. He enjoyed his most recent calling as a Gospel Doctrine teacher and loved attending the temple. He loved serving wherever he could. He was well known for his jovial personality expressed in dry humor, frequent teasing and boisterous laughter. He loved planning shenanigans and loved to surprise people. He loved to read, hike, bike, play racquetball and play board and computer games with friends. He loved to bake and cook, especially for family and friends. He loved The Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. Losing both legs quelled not his laughter, physical activity or love of life and home.\r\n\r\nA viewing will be held on Friday, December 6, 2019 from 6:00 - 8:00 pm at Jenkins-Soffe South Valley, 1007 W.
