Anthony "Butch" Huff


Some words of remembrance from a few people that loved him very much...

"I admired Butch as an authentic person. I never felt like I was getting anything but his honest feelings. He made me laugh, he made me angry on occasion, but it was impossible not to like him. Butch never tried to be anything other than Butch.

One fond memory I have is when he asked for my help with a Christmas gift for my mom. He wanted to give her a laptop for work. Not knowing much about computers he wanted some help in selecting the right model so he gave me a ring. I think it was the only phone call I ever received from him and it meant a lot to me that he asked for my help with a special gift for my mother.

I would have liked Butch no matter how I met him. But because he made my mom happy it made me like him even more. I appreciate the friends and family he introduced to us and all of the fun times we shared together. I miss him deeply."

-Jeff Garnett

"The service for Butch spoke volumes about the amazing life he led and the wonderful friends and family he was surrounded by. The room was literally overflowing with love and support for Butch. I loved hearing all the wonderful stories and "Butchisms" and it made me wish I had known him even better. Butch was a true character. A visit with Butch always made me feel welcomed and I always left feeling more energized. I loved his adventurous spirit and I respected his passion for what he believed in. I feel so blessed and fortunate to have gotten to know Butch and I am grateful to him for bringing so much love and happiness to my mom and in turn my family. Butch was always generous with his time and there to lend a helping hand to my family. He helped my husband in building his restaurant and even when Butch wasn't feeling well that Spring he had wanted to try to help us out when we decided to put an addition on our home a few months before our son Owen was born. I loved watching Butch with Owen and am so sorry that Owen won't get to know Butch as he grows up.

Thank you so much Butch for all the happy memories and all the love and joy you gave my mom and family. We all loved you so much and you are so missed."

-Aimee Munford

"Butch had the type of authenticity that anyone could admire, even more so if you were a fisherman, outdoorsmen, or enjoyed the satisfaction of building or fixing something with your own two hands. I think any child more than just about anything, wants their parents to be happy, safe, and healthy. Butch was so much more than simply my mom's boyfriend, but rather an ever constant dynamic in her life and ours. From joining my mom on a long held dream of climbing Old Rag, to trips to the 'River' on weekends, or simply spending quiet Sunday mornings cooking up a hearty breakfast, Butch brought levels of comfort, joy, and love to everything he was a part of. I am forever grateful for the joy and excitement in her voice and eyes every time I saw or spoke with her that the latest trip to the river, OBX, camping experience, or adventure that the two were either planning or going on, would inspire in her. I'll forever remember the shared holidays, good and bad moments in all, that my family shared with Butch and the joy he brought my daughter Zoe during the endless hours he would spend building trains and allowing her to boss him around. He always seemed to have the innate ability to just go with the flow, never exposing a high maintenance bone in his body. I'll forever appreciate the conversations over Eagle Rare and the counsel he gave me during many challenging points in my life, his authentic perspective always a welcome and calming relief. Butch was as American and Southern as BBQ, bourbon, and fireworks on the 4th of July and I am forever thankful to have known him and for the happiness he brought to all of our lives."
