Duval Hunter, Jr. ’52

Duval Hunter, Jr. ’52 died June 11, 2007. At Davidson, he was a member of sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. After serving in the Army during the Korean War, Hunter and his wife moved to Sanford, built a home on Lake Monroe and opened Hunter’s Ice and Fuel on 13th Street. He later opened another plant in Pahokee. Duval put on his first snow show during a Christmas season “winter wonderland” at the Grand Cypress Hotel. Later, he gave spring breakers a little of what they left behind when he blew snow on a 200-foot ski slope on a beach ramp in Daytona. He also provided ice for sculptures at area hotels and attractions. Ice was such a big part of Hunter’s life that he named his boat “Igloo,” his son said. He and Jane Reese were married fifty-two years, until her death in 2004. Survivors include his sons, Tom D. Hunter, 1360 SW Ivanhoe Blvd., Apt. 1, Orlando, Fla. 32804; and John Hunter of Sanford, Fla.; daughter, Terry Hunter White of Fort Lauderdale; brother, Herman Hunter Sr. of High Point; and four grandchildren.
