I never met him and haven't spent much time researching him, but I still have nothing but favorable impressions. And those that I know that have met or knew him all liked him. Since leaving the church and the absolute disdain and distrust I have for GAs I still liked him. He, and his father-in-law, Elder Haight, were the visiting GAs at my father's stake conference a few years ago. My dad,

And to think his poor son has been swept up in latter day call to duty. Let us pray that his good family name may stay above the fray.

But, but, but... did they conduct the funeral like a missionary presentation, with talks all about the church and the temple and tithing, like they are supposed to??? I sure hope they didn't mention a thing about the man's life work or his personal history, because that would be just too worldly, and we can't have that now, can we???

when I was a student at the University of Utah in the 1980's, the LDS institute had Jon Huntsman Sr speak at a fireside. it was an interesting talk, and Huntsman came across as a very likable, genuine and caring person .....and that was at a time when I had a gut full of MORmON authority figures asserting themselves and telling me what I needed to do .....for what was really their benefit, as th

Mother Who Knows
Jon Huntsman helped a friend of mine, who is also a friend of his. She had a bad type of cancer, and he flew her in his jet to The Huntsman Cancer Center, and paid for the best room, etc. She is cured, and is still cancer-free. On the downside, the beginnings of his business were very dubious. I know of his "errors", because my grandfather was on the board of directors of a compan

Lethbridge Reprobate
I know he helped out a lot of people through his cancer research centre. I know of at least one family where he personally intervened to get the ball rolling. He didn't have to, but he did because he could.

"That surprised me a little since although he was an active member, I didn’t know that the President would preside over a service not held in an official church building." Are you kidding? He was a billionaire that also gave generously to the church. Nelson would speak if his funeral was held in a pig sty. I wonder if they've asked the family if they can still use his jets?

Actually the Cancer Institute was not just named after Jon Huntsman because if a large donation. The Huntsman Cancer Institute was the brainchild of, and started by, Jon Huntsman :)

Wristband is already an apostle. He was probably selected to speak because he used to be an executive at Huntsman Chemical.

Lot's Wife
Well, when the widow with her mite dies I'm sure Nelson will preside over that funeral as well. God, after all, is no respecter of persons.

I just read a piece on the funeral services this morning for Mormon billionaire, Jon Huntsman, on the KSL.com website. The article talked about some speeches made and that all 7 of his children spoke of his goodness but not much about his business acumen. That’s pretty obvious since the services were held in the Huntsman Center, named for him after a big donation. Here are some pieces in qu

Once when asked about tithing, he reportedly said he didn't consider it a charitable donation but rather club dues. https://www.forbes.com/sites/andrewcave/2014/06/23/giving-to-your-church-doesnt-count-jon-huntsman-snr-and-twitters-biz-stone-on-new-philanthropy/#3719b1703e11

Maybe he can be buried in a Styrofoam coffin which will not decompose until the resurrection (meaning never).

He was kind to the non-Mormons in his family... once even buying an expensive bottle of vodka for one at an airport stop. RIP Mr. Huntsman.

I wonder if the Prophet & GA's will still get to use Huntsman's private jet for their travel? Huntstman donated more money (1.8 Billion)to charity, himself, than LDS Inc. has donated in the past 40 years combined.
