To Bernice, Children and grandchildren, My condolences to all of you. Huck led a blessed life and left making Natick a better place to live. What fond memories of his store and his personal service. I'm sure him and his buddy Sam are now together planning out on their next big trip.

My sincere condolences to the entire Saxe family.
Huck was a good friend of my Dad's; they had a lot in common as both were WWII vets who served in the Pacific theater. I have a lot of memories of Huck at the Outdoor Store. Huck sold us (my Dad) the .22 long rifle that I and my sister used in target shooting competitions when we were kids.

My condolences to the Saxe family. Huck will be missed - he truly was an amazing man. I will always remember going to the original Outdoor Store on Washington St. with my father and brother. Huck and my dad would just chat and enjoy each other's company ... fond memories!

I am so sad to learn of Huck's passing. It seems like it was only yesterday that Alan and Miki Goodkin and I were on Hemlock Drive or Alan and I were hanging out at the store on Washington Street. Huck thanks for the memories and thanks for your service and sacrifice.

Mike, my condolences to you and your family. I got to know Huck when I was about 9 years old, when I started going to the Outdoor Store to buy fishing gear. For years I enjoyed his advice on fishing and outdoor pursuits. He was a kind and patient man, and very helpful to me.

Our fond thoughts and prayers are with the whole family.

Dear Mike and family,

On behalf of the Natick High class of 1968, I would like to extend our sincere sympathy on the loss of your Dad, "Huck", who many of us knew well from our adventures at the Natick Outdoor Store. I still recall when I bought my first surfboard from him (in 1966) when the Outdoor Store was on Washington Street. He was a wonderful man, and will be missed by all.
