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.

Jeff

Wow. Sorry to hear this, Jeff. I wondered about him since I have not seen him post anything for a long time. And, I knew he was sick. I'll be thinking of him.

Jeff,

I went back and looked at my favorite project of Dave's. SInce he hasn't posted in a couple years, I thought it would be good to bring up this memory of Dave.

As you and I know, Dave was great at starting things, but had a hard time getting a project over the finish line. He easily got distracted by other projects or would analyze his next steps on a project for ages...both are traits each of us are probably guilty of. But, boy, he did fantastic work when he did move on a project. This is a project where he was super detailing a Bachmann 4-4-0 with your help.

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.

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.

That's sad news. We form friendships here with folks we never see in person. Dave will be missed.

Chuck,
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.

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.

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.

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.
