R. Glenn Hunter Obituary

It is with heavy hearts and deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, brother, uncle, and friend, Richard Glenn Hunter on February 7, 2024. He left behind a legacy that will be felt by many of his family, friends, and community. Glenn was born October 20, 1944 in Montpelier, Idaho to Lawrence and Ruby Hunter. He was the third of four boys. The family moved to Pocatello, but he was never happy in the city. He always managed to find his way back to Georgetown, even if he had to hitchhike, at age 10. He eventually moved there with his grandparents and helped them out on the farm. He later met Nancy Kay Stoddard and they were married November 4, 1966, and later sealed in the Idaho Falls, Idaho LDS Temple. He gained a daughter Lori, and a few years later Kelly came into their lives. He was ecstatic when he had the opportunity to buy the family homestead in Georgetown, Idaho. One of his greatest loves was farming. He loved working with his hands whether he was mending fences, building barns, or working on old cars. He could always be found helping someone out and sharing his many talents. His family was his greatest possession. He loved getting everyone together for their annual reunion. He made sure he visited with them all, his brothers, their families, and all the extended family.

Due to his love of farming he worked on the church farms in Pocatello, Idaho and than later worked on the Clark’s farm in Georgetown, Idaho. In 1976 he started working for Bear River Distributing where he gained the nickname “The Pepsi Man”. He loved the hard work and all the many friendships he made along the way. If you ever had the chance to meet him, you would instantly know you had a friend. He loved meeting new friends! He always had a smile and will always be remembered for the biggest smile.

The family would like to thank Symbii Home Health and Hospice staff and the Bear Lake Memorial staff. Glenn leaves behind his wife Nancy, daughter, Lori Wallentine (Wade Parr), daughter, Kelly (Clarissa) Hunter, brother, Dan Hunter and a sister-in-law, Carla Hunter. He was preceded in death by grandson Sidney Wallentine, parents Lawrence and Ruby Hunter, brothers Gerald and Jack Hunter.
