I regret to inform you of the passing of a good friend of mine and other RRL members, Dave Hunt.
Dave Passed Sunday morning at about 430am.
He was an artist (oils and charcoals) a graphic artist and drew for Marvel, Disney, and others. He was a member of this forum and a fine modeler.
The service will be private and a memorial service will be held in a few weeks.
As I find out more I will post.

God speed Dave.

This is also an interesting site about Dave, especially showing the pictures of Dave in his youth.

I found this nice autobiographical site on Dave's work in the Wikipedia listings references. Very interesting.

snarlman Posted - 03/20/2017 : 06:11:25 AM
Thank you for posting that link Chuck, I had missed that completely.

Wow, Sorry to hear about Dave's passing. I remember meeting him once at a show. I didn't know him or his work like you Jeff.

I started looking him up quickly to better know some of his past works. He will be missed. I'm just starting to understand just how much I've missed out on.

It's nice to know forums in our hobby allow for getting to know so many other modelers from multiple sources where one might not necessarily be exposed to. Thanx Thom...

Wikipedia has a page about him: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dave_Hunt_%28artist%29 - apparently created recently by people who knew him primarily as a comic artist.

I second what George said. I'm a little late in posting here, but I went through some of Dave's older posts tonight, and I do remember him. I will miss his posts too. My prayers for his family and friends.
wvrr Posted - 03/18/2017 : 7:00:36 PM
I just found Dave's obituary in one of the local newspapers, on-line. I thought some forum members would like to learn more about Dave. He had a variety of talents and interests.

So sorry to hear about this Jeff. Dave is without a doubt another fine modeler and great member lost. My thoughts, prayers and sympathy go out to his family & friends.
MarkF Posted - 03/07/2017 : 10:29:20 AM
This is sad news. I do recall I had the occasion to meet Dave some time ago, but I don't recall the event. My sympathies to his friends and family.
Tyson Rayles Posted - 03/07/2017 : 09:47:22 AM
Sorry to hear about this, best wishes to his family.
snarlman Posted - 03/07/2017 : 06:19:21 AM
Dave had the city classics pretty much completely done and wanted just a few more details around the stairs, you know Dave. I lent a small hand with the LED lighting inside and the goose neck lamps outside on the billboards. Its really nice inside too. We were considering a road trip to meet up, but at the time I was having an issue of my own.

I'm sad to hear this, I really enjoyed his posts!

wvrr Posted - 03/06/2017 : 4:54:16 PM
One more memory, and this is a sad one for me. Maybe 15 years ago, or more, I bought a City Classics structure for him to build for me. This past October, I received an excited email from him saying he finished it. I was on vacation, at the time. But, I told him we could maybe meet at an RPM meet I was going to or make other arrangements to meet. I never heard back from him and I had completely forgotten about it. I wish we did connect one last time.

Here is a photo of Dave. We were at the World Greatest Hobby Show back in 2004.

From left to right it is me, Chuck, Rick, and Dave Hunt.
