January 13, 1958 — October 18, 2018

Walker Huff, 60 of Allison passed away October 18, 2018 in Canadian.

Walker was born January 13, 1958 in Canadian, Texas to Boyd and Ellen Huff. He has been a lifelong rancher on the Huff family ranch along the Gageby Creek in Hemphill County. As a lifelong rancher, Walker’s life was marked by grit, determination, and perseverance. He loved his horse Comanche, and together they logged many hours working cattle. He was never known to sit on the sidelines, whether he was stacking hay, mending fence, or simply raking leaves. People also always knew exactly where they stood with Walker, whether that be a firm correction to “stop whining” or casting his vote as to the “right way” to get the job done. Behind the rough exterior of a ranching life, however, was someone who taught us all about the softer side of life. Walker had the keen ability to know when something was wrong and would intervene with assurance that everything was going to be A-Okay. In those moments as he lay his head on your shoulder and gave you a pat on the back with some words of encouragement, life’s burdens lifted. Perhaps most important was Walker’s lifelong commitment to His God. He knew when to slow down and make space to worship God on Sunday and sing praises to God. He loved going to Church. He was a lifelong member of Allison First Baptist Church. Walker was a truly unique individual who shaped us all in profound ways and will be missed by the many people whose lives he blessed.

Survivors include three brothers; Johnnie Pat Huff and wife Angie, Clint Frye Huff and wife Amy, of Allison, James Daniel Huff and wife Candy of Meade, Kansas; nine Nieces and Nephews; five Great Nieces and Nephews, and numerous cousins.

Walker was a preceded in death by his parents and two nieces, Harper Huff and Catherine Huff.
