      David Milan Huffman

Dave passed away on September 24, 2022 in Lansing, Michigan. He was a native of Port Huron, Michigan and a resident of Charlotte, Michigan. Dave received a Bachelor’s Degree from Western Michigan University. He married Pamela Waterbury on July 11, 1970, and together they raised their two daughters to love and care for friends and family. Dave proudly served 4 years in the U.S. Air Force during Vietnam as a grounds radio operator. Dave worked for the Department of State Police in accounting, retiring in 2002. After that he worked for the City of Lansing part-time in parking revenue collection, and for Fun Services driving vans and calling BINGO at special events. Activities he enjoyed included bowling, fishing, camping, and being an umpire for adult softball leagues. He was also a member of Delta Township Kiwanis Club, and a faithful member of Eaton Rapids Nazarene Church. Daily prayers always ended with "Bless this food to our bodies, give us strength and protection, watch over us as we serve you. In Jesus name we pray, Amen." Daily devotionals were something Dave not only enjoyed, but also encouraged his family to do with him as well, which is why they have peace knowing he is walking the streets of Gold. Extremely proud of his family, Dave loved to share stories about his daughters, and then later his grandchildren's activities and accomplishments, and loved being a part of all their activities. His family will miss seeing his smile, his patience for good things to come, and his long eloquent stories. Survivors included Dave’s wife of 52 years, Pam; daughters, Tonya (Brad) Duerr and Teresa (Ken) Jones; grandchildren, Bradlee, Meagan (Michael), Matthiew (Erin), Kaedance, Symphony, Bryce, and Kenzie; one great-grandson on the way; and his sister, Donna Huffman. He was preceded in death by his parents; brother Richard (Sally) Huffman; two nephews, and his grandparents. Follow the link below to view Dave’s obituary.

I crossed paths with Dave only for an instant. We were on the same baseball team
of 3 players back in highschool. Oddly the team did not last long. Anyway he seemed like he had a kind soul for the short time I new him.I am sorry for his loss as he was a very good husband and father. He was a BEARCAT.

I am sorry to learn of David's passing.  I did not know David from my BCHS years, it is clear to me, that it was my loss.  Reading his memorial tells a story of a wonderful person, fully rounded, and deeply connected to Spirit.  I wish I had known David, but I can know how much of an emty hole his passing will leave with all who were connected to him.  I offer my heart felt sympathy to all who had the blessing of knowing this incredibly wonderful person.  Blessed Be in the Light of Spirit always.................................
