We are desperately saddened to announce the passing of our Kelli Christine Hunt, 44 years old of Hurricane, Utah. Kelli passed away on Tuesday, January 24, 2023, at home surrounded by her loved ones.
Kelli was born in Orange County, California on April 18, 1978, to Martha and Thomas Hunt. There she lived a quiet, happy life filled with love and laughter. She enjoyed traveling with friends and family whenever possible. Kelli was a creative soul that inherently excelled at so many pursuits. Her talents spanned cake decorating, gardening, cooking, and home décor. She had an eye for art and a skillset to match. She was a lover of all things Halloween, Christmas, and Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion. One of her favorite past times was working with her dad in their wood shop. From rebuilding vintage cars to creating extravagant Halloween decorations, Kelli’s creative brilliance was unmatched. Her mild and humble nature would absolutely disapprove of our gushing (although honest) tribute.
Kelli was an exceptionally kind and gentle human being. Her soft-spoken nature was the epitome of class and grace. Kelli was loved by all and anyone that was fortunate enough to know her were forever changed for the better.
Kelli is survived by her loving parents; Tom and Marty Hunt, her first and longest best friend and sister Lori Gentry, her brother-in-law Ryan Gentry, her beloved nephew, Chase (the light of her life), her sister by choice, Emily Gates, her pup Dundie, and many, many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
Kelli’s absence will forever be a void in our lives, but the memories we have shared with her and the memories we have of her will be with us always. We will always love you, beautiful Kelli.
In true Kelli fashion, Kelli has requested that her services remain private.
