I knew of Renny's bile duct cancer for awhile. Renny called me about one month before he passed away to let me know that his doctor gave him six month to live. I told him how sorry I was to hear that. I asked him if he was spiritually ready as I thought he had accepted Christ in his teens. He told me that he didn't believe in an after life but I could tell he was receptive. I told him I would rather believe in something rather than nothing.
I contacted our cousin Bob Craft a missionary with the Nazarene Church who was in Thailand at that time. He had some long conversations with Renny. I can only pray that he got right before passing on. He had told me previously he would be cremated without a funeral. I had purchased a plane ticket to visit him on Feb. 28, sadly I did not get to visit with him.
His dad Curtis Huffman passed on in 1988, mother Mildred Hesterley Huffman in 2008, and Paula Huffman Strickland in 2015. Survived by brothers Jerry Huffman of Hartwell, GA. and Joseph Huffman of Twin City, GA.

Jerry, thank you for posting this. Please remember that your ideas and beliefs are not the only thing that is valid in this world. Each individual has the right to believe just as they choose. My father held beliefs that were different from yours, but they were his beliefs and it was and is not up to you or anyone else to change them. I feel his beliefs, right or wrong, should be respected and honored. My father was a good man. Better than most, and for sure better than many men who claimed to be "of God". We love my dad, my children's granddad, for exactly the man he was. We respect his beliefs even if we might disagree with them on some level. There will never be another human being that means so much to me in my life, and I will miss him today and forever. He was smart, fun, practical and one of my best friends. I truly enjoyed every minute I ever spent with him, and regret not taking him fishing last summer, one last time....

We just received a call from Renny's brother Jerry notifying us of Renny's passing on the 11th of this month. We spoke to Renny what feels like only days ago. He must have passed away within hours or only days after we spoke to him. I (Steve) had been meaning to telephone him for several days now to discuss his recently discovered health problems.. His passing was certainly sooner than we expected and too late to make that call.. So sorry to hear of his passing. Steve and Debbie Atcheson - His friends and Realtors from Georgia
