Of Arden Hills
Survived by his wife of 67 years, Faye, son Todd, daughters Holly, Randee (Bob) Allen, Polly, Jenny (David) Skidmore, six grandchildren and three great grandchildren. He was also preceded in death by one grandchild. Dennis Wayne Hunt was born in Sibley, Iowa, on March 21, 1932, to Wayne and Dorothy Hunt. He spent his youth in Sibley, graduating high school in 1950. He participated in all sports and was recruited by Iowa State Teachers College (now University of Northern Iowa) for the track team. He graduated with a degree in business in 1954. There he met his sweetheart, Faye, and they married in Sioux City, Iowa, in 1954. The couple moved to Park Ridge, Illinois, while Dennis completed his army tour of two years. He then joined his parents in their business, Hunt Truck Lines, after moving to Downers Grove, Illinois. In 1960, the company’s general office moved to Rockwell City, Iowa, where he was active in Rotary, serving as president. After 25 years in Iowa, the Hunt Truck Lines general office moved to St. Paul, Minnesota. Dennis was active in all aspects of the company and became president and CEO in 1975. He served a three-year term as board member of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, and was president of the Iowa Motor Truck Association and Middlewest Motor Freight Association. Dennis participated in many musical activities, including trombone, vibraphone, bell choir and, his most endearing passion, marching bands. Above all, he enjoyed, loved and took great pride in his family and cheering on the Minnesota Twins and Vikings. A memorial service will be held at 11 am on Saturday, January 15, at Centennial United Methodist Church, 1524 County Road C2 in Roseville.
