With great sadness we announce the passing of Edwin Huff. He passed peacefully at the age of 86 after a battle with cancer. Predeceased by his longtime companion and devoted wife, Berneatta Sterling Huff (2018) and his parents, Constance and Carl, as well as his only sister, Marie Bye (2020).
Loving father to Brian Huff (Connie), Darlene Brady (Brian), Terry Huff (Eva), Christine Huff (Paul), Stephen Huff (Glynis) and Gary Grover (Lauren). He was also a proud grandfather of Damien Torres, Aleshia Brady, Melissa Grover, Tamara Gostek, Natasha Huff, Orien Brady, Andrew Grover and Nicole Huff with four great-grandchildren, Alastir, Lily, Jackson, Emery and a fifth on the way.
Edwin will be fondly remembered for being an avid reader and passionate debater. He enjoyed bowling and was always up for a friendly game of cards.
As a young man, Edwin served in the Navy eventually becoming a Veteran. He stated that it was in the Navy where he gained insight into the world at large but also helped "shape" him into the man he would become.
Father, may you rest in peace and be reunited with your beloved wife.
There will be a Private Family Gathering.
The family would like to thank VON and the Chatham-Kent Hospice for his care.
Donations in his honor may be made to the Chatham-Kent Hospice Foundation or to the Veterans Affairs.
