Such terribly sad news.
I only knew Dave through email, but over the years he has been a true gent.
Approachable and always helpful. An upbeat, hardworking guy, considering the stresses he went through.
Dave Hunter was a printing genius and one of the best gig poster artists in the business.

Terrible to hear about this. Great guy, heart goes out to his loved ones - especially his daughter. :(

Very sad news. Dave was a very nice guy, it was a pleasure to rap with him the few times I did. My deepest condolences to his family.

I have not been as involved in the hobby over the past year like I was the previous 3 or 4. I got a new job, family growing up, etc. This is my first post in a year. But I had to post once I heard this sad news.

Dave Hunter never refused to answer an email or Facebook message. He was always gracious. He shared his life openly with all of us. He was one of a kind.

He will live on forever through his art. And those of us who knew him - no matter how briefly - are better off for it.

God bless his family during this difficult time.

Lets get some more donations to: https://www.youcaring.com/dave-756299 It hasn't moved much in the past day. Great talented artist and just a great human being. Can't help but not being able to stop thinking about his daughter and how she's feeling.
