Richard Huffman Obituary
Huffman, Richard
Richard Michael (Rick) Huffman, 54, died in Columbus, OH on July 26, 2017 after a long illness. Rick is survived by his wife, Marlyn Sue (Mikki) Stevenson; parents, Pat and Richard Huffman, Roanoke, VA; sister, Cathy Roeder, Pittsburgh, PA; son, Ricky Huffman, Coschoton, OH, his loyal "adopted" son, David Thomas, Marysville, OH; and six grandchildren. Rick was born in Charleston, WV, February 5, 1963. He grew up in South Charleston, WV. He demonstrated a mechanical aptitude early on. As a child, if he took something apart (as he sometimes did) he could put it back together. As he matured so did his skills at fixing most anything. A job transfer brought him to Columbus. He operated a lawn care and snow removal service. He was rightfully proud of the cars and four-wheelers which he painstakingly restored and maintained. Eventually he returned to his demonstrated abilities to become maintenance manager for several apartment complexes. Rick was an animal lover, bringing home dogs, cats, and various other critters. Once, as a child, he had the family chasing a roomful of baby frogs which had matured from his collected tadpoles. He will be missed by his current menagerie, Nitro, Scrappy, and Diesel. Rick was a big man with a big heart. He was always willing to help friends and neighbors with construction and repair jobs. He was unconditionally protective of his sister, always as near as the telephone, as he was for all his loved ones. Rick was fun-loving, strong, stubborn and persistent. A service to celebrate Rick's life will be held in Columbus in the near future. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to ASPCA Ohio, P.O. Box 546, Grove City, OH 43123.
