TILTON - David C. Huckins, 80, died Sunday, Aug. 4, 2013, at home.

David was born July 21, 1933, in Northfield, one of 14 children to Guy and Blanche (Hawkins) Huckins. He was a building contractor and started Damy Realty, which was instrumental in developing the elderly housing in Tilton and Franklin, as well as other apartment complexes in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.

David was known in the world of antique cars for his beautiful restoration of his Chrysler automobiles. He took great pride in being able to say he restored each one from the frame up. To him, was there any other make of car besides a Chrysler product?

David was a former trustee of Iona Savings Bank, a member of the PALS car club, the American Legion Post 49 and the B.P.O.E. 1280. He was a generous man and supported many organizations including Easter Seals of New Hampshire.
