Michael Parker Huff was born on Dec. 31, 1942, in Lansing, Michigan, to Edgar and Florence Huff. He grew up and went to school in Michigan. He was married and lived in Las Vegas for a few years. After a divorce, he married Judy Hartle in Bend, Oregon, and they made their home in Oregon. Following a second divorce in the early 1990s, he moved to Buffalo where he worked at various jobs. He spent 10 years as a long-haul trucker driving his own truck. He started several businesses including landscaping and a backhoe and excavating service. He was a jack of all trades and was capable at auto-mechanics, plumbing, electricity and carpentry. He especially enjoyed the second-hand business and was always up for a trade. In all his travels, he loved the wide-open spaces of the West the best, and he loved Buffalo where he continued living until his death.
Mike was a kind and generous person who loved children and would share all he had with anyone in need. He loved animals and rescued many that found their way into his life. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends
He is survived by one son, Wes Huff and his wife Amber of Buffalo; two brothers, Ned Huff of California and John Huff of Kinear; three sisters, Joanna Tyack of San Diego, Patricia Koslow of Bend, Oregon, and Libby Dreisbach living in the Philippine Islands; and four grandchildren.
