Clark Lafe Hunt of Hereford, AZ passed away on January 25, 2022, surrounded by family in Oakdale, CA after a brief battle with cancer. He was 77 years old.
Clark was born August 9, 1944, in Price, Utah, to Loran and Elma Hunt. He graduated from the University of Utah with a Bachelor of Science and MBA degrees.
After graduation he enlisted in the U.S. Army and was assigned to Vietnam as a Strategic Intelligence Officer and Adviser for the ICEX/Phoenix Program. During his duty in Vietnam he earned the Bronze Star, among other medals. Following Vietnam, he was stationed at Fort Huachuca, Arizona, where he met and married Caroline Hemenway. Upon retirement from active duty while stationed at Schofield Barracks in Hawaii, he moved his family to San Jose, California and joined the Army Reserve. He retired with the rank of lieutenant colonel.
Clark enjoyed telling stories and learning about family history and he was always curious to learn where someone was from. He loved cooking for friends and family, and growing grapes to make and drink red wine. Sailing, golfing and working on attaining his pilot’s license were his favorite pastimes, but most of all he enjoyed spending time with grandchildren and watching them participate in all their fun activities.
Clark is predeceased by his father (Loran), his mother (Elma) and brother (Donald). He is survived by his wife Caroline, daughters Tiffany Cadwell (Travis) and Paula Ould (Lee), and five grandchildren (Kelsey Cadwell, Travis Cadwell, Kaitlyn Ould, Kyla Ould and Cody Ould).
Funeral services were held on February 8 at the Hatfield Funeral Home in Sierra Vista, AZ, followed by interment with military honors at Southern Arizona Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery in Sierra Vista, AZ.
