Born Aug. 16, 1953, in Canton, he was the son of Bernadine “Bunny” (Miller) Huffman and the late Quentin Huffman.
Roy was the maintenance manager for 34 years at Blossom Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. He was a 1972 graduate of Carrollton High School and an avid Ohio State Buckeyes fan. He was a member of Damascus Friends Church, and a veteran of the U.S. Air Force and served in the Vietnam War.
Roy was a man of great faith. He worked very hard at doing the Lords will. He was a husband, son, brother, uncle, brother-in-law and a friend to many. He was a teacher, advisor for the Lord and a man who served his country. He was a quiet man but one with much wisdom he would share for the asking. He will be missed by many, but mostly by his wife who loved him to her soul. His pet babies, Oscar and Mitchell, will miss their daddy. It’s not goodbye but, until we see you again.
He is survived by his wife, Mary C. (Burson) Huffman, whom he married Aug. 14, 1993; his mother, Bernadine “Bunny” Huffman of Dellroy; a sister, Brenda (David) Lucas of Dellroy; three brothers, Roger (Penny) Huffman of Dalton, Randy (Clara) Huffman of Dellroy and Rick (Kathy) Huffman of Sherrodsville; and many nieces and nephews.
Along his with father, he was preceded in death brother, Stanley Huffman.
