JAKE EDWIN HUFFT
December 4, 1915 - July 15, 2013
Jake Edwin Hufft passed away at the age of 97, in Woodland Hills, CA.
Jake was born in Lathrop, Missouri, where he attended William Jewell College. He moved to California in his early 20's. Once here, he never considered moving back to the mid-west because in his own words, "You can't beat the climate in Southern California!" Jake always enjoyed his work as a general contractor as he once remarked, "when I was on the job there was no place else I'd rather be."
Jake is survived by his daughter Nancy Hoffberg, son-in-law David, and granddaughter Rachel, as well as many nieces, nephews, and other family members. Jake will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure and joy to know and love him.
A memorial service will be held Monday, July 22, 2013, 11:00 a.m., at Prince of Peace Episcopal Church in Woodland Hills, CA, to celebrate Jake's life.
