I transferred from the Department of Transportation offices in Gainesville to Tallahassee in 1984.
When I think of Carl, the first thing that comes to mind is his size. He was a big man who, as one person said, "...could walk the walk and talk the talk...".
And in total contrast, he was a gentle man. The best way I could describe him was that he was the epitome of a true southern gentleman.
I can actually visualize him turning the corner coming in to the Executive Suite, and when he caught your eye, there was always a smile on his face.
My thoughts and prayers are with his family. Your loved one was an actual presence and positive influence in and on the lives of many.
Rest in peace, Carl, rest in peace.
My prayers go out to his family. RIP Carl, rest in peace.
Dear Huff, Blaum and Harris Families,
We are thinking of your today and send our condolences for the loss of your Pappy. He was a wonderful man and we wish we could have seen him a few more times in PA for some lively debate and laughs :) Sending you one of my favorite poems that I like to reflect on during times like this. Bless you all and may peace find your hearts today and always.
The Jungbluth Family
I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.
All the pain and grief is over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in Heaven at last.
Did you wonder I so calmly
Trod the valley of the shade?
Oh! but Jesus' arm to lean on,
Could I have one doubt or dread?
Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still;
Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
Pray to trust our Father's Will.
There is work still waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now, while life remaineth--
You shall rest in Jesus' land.
When that work is all completed,
He will gently call you Home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come!
The name Carl Huff and Gentleman went hand in hand. He was the kindest man I ever worked with. He never failed to speak, regardless of where he was or what he was doing. He was a man among men. My heart and prayers go out to you, his family...He will truly be missed. Sincerely, Tara Morgan-Alford
