Brad W. Hunt

Brad W. Hunt passed away on July 30, 2020 at home in Weiser, Idaho surrounded by family.
 Brad was born on Sept. 24, 1954, in American Falls, Idaho to Pons Day and Hazel Williamson Hunt.
 He grew up as the middle child with his three sisters, Ella, Nicki, and Shelley and brother Bruce. His favorite place to be growing up was at Lake Channel with Grandma Ella.
 Brad attended school in American Falls, McCall, and Cascade before graduating from Weiser High School in 1973. Shortly after graduation he began his apprenticeship and later career as an electrician with McKnight and Syme Electric.
 After many years with McKnight and Syme Electric, Brad made the move to Holy Rosary/Saint Alphonsus Hospital in Ontario. He worked there as an electrician until 2016. He loved everyone everywhere he worked. His co-workers became close friends and like family to Brad.
 Besides hunting and fishing, Brad’s true love in life was his family. He married his wife, Joan Takehara Hunt, in 1974. Ten years later, they welcomed their only child – son Brian Hunt.
 Brian married Danielle Wieder Blevins in 2007 and together they had two children, Brice and Kacey Hunt. Brad’s grandchildren were very precious to him. Not a day went by without him seeing or talking to them.
 Brad is preceded in death by both parents Pons and Hazel Hunt, youngest sisters Sheila Hunt (at birth) and Shelley Krueger, brother-in-law Douglas Glascock, and nephews Paul Glascock and Michael Douglas Thomas.
 Brad is survived by his wife, Joan Takehara Hunt, son, Brian Hunt (Danielle Hunt), grandson Brice Hunt, granddaughter Kacey Hunt, sisters Ella Glascock and Nicki Hyatt, brother Bruce Hunt, sisters-in-law Marsha Beck (Duane Beck) and Charlene Hanson (Mark Hanson), brothers-in-law Carl Krueger, Mel Takehara (Alice Takehara) and Tim Takehara (Mauri Saito Takehara), as well as many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews.
