Engine dies, does not turn over. 6.0 Suggestions? Help?

I've been driving for over an hour and a half when the engine dies like I turned off the key. When I get stopped, I try to start the engine. No starter click. Engine doesn't turn over. After about an hour, the engine turns over and starts. About a minute later, the engine dies again. I get the truck towed to the dealership that maintains my truck. It starts for them. They toss their code reader on the truck, and tell me the truck isn't throwing codes. For the next three days, they run the engine, but it doesn't die on them. I drove the truck home without an incident. The next day, I start the engine so I can take my daughter to her physical therapy, and it dies in the driveway. It has the same symptom; Doesn't turn over. Dash lights light up, turn the key, and the engine doesn't turn over. The starter doesn't click, and neither does the starter relay.

Does anyone have an idea what is going on or have suggestions for me to check?

Thanks in advance!

Sounds like an electrical issue. It could be something as simple as the battery connections. Clean them good and re-attach them to see if that works.
