Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

Ralph E. Huffman (Hillbilly), age 79, from Grandville, MI passed away Tuesday, August 13, 2019. He was preceded in death by his parents, Othus and Paulene Huffman; 5 siblings and grandson, Butch Huffman.

Survivors include his children, Chip (Lynda) Huffman, Doug Huffman (Mike Bunch), and Dennis (Michelle) Huffman; grandchildren, Tony Huffman, Erisa (Adam) Kik, Dennis Huffman II, Derek Huffman, Makaila Huffman, and Brandon Huffman; six great-grandchildren; and 4 siblings along with several nieces, nephews, and friends.

The family would like to extend a special thanks to Gene & Katie Huffman for the caring overnight visits and Tamela Schroeder, Larry Johnson for the travels to check on him along with many friends making frequent visits during his battle for life.

Ralph moved from Urbana Ohio to Wyoming Michigan in 1964 to raise his family where he worked as a supervisor at McInerne Spring and wire, Gordon manufacturing and retiring from Jedco Aerospace in 2006. Ralph enjoyed spending time with family and friends, talking sports, politics, and cars. Generally playing devil’s advocate to spark a debate, referring to his conversations as “telling lies”. He had many nick names, quotes and phrases that would make you chuckle even if some were offensive.

Per Ralph’s wishes cremation has taken place.  A celebration of life luncheon will be held at the Moose Lodge, 2630 Burlingame Ave SW, Wyoming, MI 49509, on Saturday, September 21, 2019, from 12:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.

    We loved Ralph…He always had stories to tell, with a laugh to go with them. He loved his boys, talked about them often. He was also interested to hear what others had to say. We will miss him. Jim and Nancy Wilson
