Our heartfelt condolences. We are so sorry to hear this sad news. He was a great man. I learned a lot from him.
I will always have good memories of this man. I wish I would have known about memorial service so that I would have come.

I always remember Uncle Wib being always willing to talk to a little kid. You always felt like he was there with you. More recently we had discussions by email about current political events. I was sorry when that ended. I always loved it when he and Aunt Millie and of course my cousins came to visit. I am sorry I won't be able to talk with him now.
Aunt Millie, Patty, Susan, Diane and Jimmy,
Our sympathies on your loss. We just learned yesterday about the loss of Uncle Wib. The thing I remember most about Wib was how intelligent and how jovial he always was--just a pleasure to be around. You are all in our thoughts.
Sue and Gary,
Julian and I have you both in our thoughts and hearts, along with your children. We are so sad for your loss.
I never knew your Dad. I can only comment on two things. One, he raised one smart women and mother. Two, he gave you the intelligence and grace to marry Gary, a good friend and one of the smartest attorneys that I know.
My drat Aunt Millie, Diane and all,
Uncle Wib was one of our sweetest family members. He was always kind and quick with a smile. I so much enjoyed reconnecting with him through emails. Stunned that my brothers, sisters and I had so many of the same feelings, opinions, and political ideas as Uncle Wib and the rest of my uncles. I missed him when he was no longer able to be in contact with us and I miss him still. My prayers and thoughts are with all of you. Take care of each other.
Love you all,
Beth (Huff) Bodenschatz.
A very impressive and accomplished man, husband and father.
Dear Aunt Millie, Diane, Jimmy, Patty and Susan,
Bless you all during this sad time. No matter how old a parent/spouse, it's always too early to say goodbye. I have treasured memories of your whole family. I can see my Uncle Wib sitting in a lawn chair in front of our house on Perrine, laughing, telling stories, and actually being interested in all of the little Huffs running around. He'll always bring a smile to my face when I think of him. Love to all of you cousins and you too, dear Aunt Millie.
Dear Aunt Millie and cousins Diane, Jimmy, Patty and Susan,
I was saddened to hear of the loss of my Uncle Wib. My mom always spoke so highly of him. Though I have not seen him in a very long time, I remember his smile and quick wit and that twinkle in his eye. I know your own sweet memories will give you much comfort as you mourn his passing. My best to all of you during this sad time.
Dear Aunt Millie, Diane, Jim, Patty and Susan,
It is a hard thing to lose a spouse/parent no matter what the circumstances. I will always remember our trip to Buffalo to see Niagra Falls and spend time with you. Uncle Wib was a memorable man, and he will be missed. All our sympathy,
Angie (Huff) and Al Lickhart
Ahhh what sad news to have received today. We have lost Uncle Wib from this short moment on Earth. But what sweet memories; yes even after all these years. Several memories I have; making homemade ice cream at our historic house near South Bend at a big family reunion, his conversations about rubber and vulcanization, and his trials and tribulations of having his new driveway installed at he and Aunt Millie's house in Williamsville. And of course my dad's (his brother Patrick) love of classical music which was inspired from his older brother Wilbur's classical music interest. God love him, Aunt Millie, our four cousins and of course his parents, which we "Patricks" call Grandmaudy and Grandpaudy. Chris
I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. May God comfort you and your family.

Saddened by the passing of Uncle Wib . . . though it's been many years since we've seen you, my husband and I really enjoyed stopping to see you in New York back in '86 and so appreciated your hospitality and visiting with you! He will be missed!
We are so sorry for the loss of your grandpa. Our deepest sympathy and condolences to you and your entire family.
I will always cherish the many happy memories I have of him growing up. I was so blessed to call him Grandpa and share in his wisdom and humor.
