Photos: Mourners pay their last respects to Jon Huntsman Sr.

Mourners attended a public viewing for Jon M. Huntsman Sr. at the Monument Park Stake Center in Salt Lake City on Friday. The billionaire, businessman, political organizer, philanthropist and former Area Seventy of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, died last week at age 80. Funeral services are scheduled at 11 a.m. Saturday at the University of Utah arena renamed in his honor 30 years ago. In addition, an architectural feature on the west facade of the original Huntsman Cancer Institute research building — called The Beacon of Hope — was lit for the first time at sunset Friday.
