DOWN ON THE FARM
Ray Carlos Hunsaker passed away on November 18, 2021. He was 94 years old. He was born at home on January 19, 1927 in Elwood, Utah. He was the second of six children born to Raymond Warner and Gladys Marie Hill Hunsaker. He grew up on the family farm learning at an early age the value of hard work by doing his part in raising crops, irrigating, milking cows and caring for the livestock. He graduated from Bear River High School in 1945. He attended the Agricultural College of Utah, now known as Utah State University, for three years. He was a member of the Sigma Nu Fraternity. Carlos was a pilot in the United States Air Force. In 1947 he met Evelyn “Babe” Walker, a cute little brunette from Ogden, Utah. They were married in 1949 in Las Vegas, Nevada and sealed in the Logan Temple in 1951. Carlos was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
He was a member of the Intermountain Horse Show Association where he was the high point winner for several years. He showed horses from Billings, MT to Phoenix, AZ. He was a member of the Box Elder County Mounted Sheriff’s Posse for several years where he and Babe made many friends and lifelong memories.
He worked with his father for many years. They had a beautiful herd of registered Jersey cows and ran Hunsaker Dairy in Elwood. He took great pride in farming, raising animals and caring for the land that was homesteaded by his great grandfather, Allen C Hunsaker, in 1887. He continued caring for the farm until the day he passed away. He loved the fact that he was able to celebrate Christmas, every year for 93 years, in the same house he was born and raised in. He had a great love for all of his family and was proud of his pioneer heritage. We will miss him telling his life stories and hearing him play the harmonica.
He is survived by his loving wife, Evelyn “Babe”; children, Karla Rae (Terry) Allen, Sandra (Rick) Duffey, Kim (Don) Anderson and Scott Carlos (Heidi) Hunsaker; 14 grandchildren; 28 great grandchildren; and his brother Clair Ben Hunsaker.
Carlos was preceded in death by his parents, Raymond Warner Hunsaker and Gladys Marie Hill Hunsaker; siblings, Lee Warner Hunsaker, Ralph Seymour Hunsaker, Beth Marie Hunsaker and Doris Hunsaker Heaton.
