October 27, 1935 — June 9, 2022

William “Bill” Huff, 86, our loving and kind father, grandfather, great-grandfather and brother, passed away June 9, 2022, in Spokane, Washington surrounded by his children. Bill was born in Rupert, Idaho on Oct. 27, 1935, to Henry and Bertha Huff. He was the fourth of four children. He attended schools in Minidoka County, Idaho, graduating high school there. Bill worked on the family farm, and after graduating, joined the Marines, serving during the Korean War. Bill was a skilled fabricator and ironworker and could fix most anything. He truly was a “jack of all trades.”

After coming home from the military, he met the love of his life, Karen Roland, and they were married in 1956 in Burley, Idaho. They were blessed with four children: Jeff, Dan, Angie and Bryan. Bill and Karen began their married life in the Rupert area, moving to Washington state for a time, then back to Rupert. They eventually settled in Moses Lake, Washington.

Bill enjoyed spending time with his family, playing pinochle, and water skiing or riding jet skis on Moses Lake. He also enjoyed going for morning coffee and seeing the girls at Café D Espresso. He loved visiting his children at their homes in Washington, Arizona and Idaho. One special memory was his daughter and son-in-law taking him to spring training in Arizona to watch the Mariners practice, with his wife Karen, a lifelong fan. Bill enjoyed watching sports, especially if his sons or daughter were playing. Later in life, he enjoyed watching his grandchildren and great-grandchildren participate in activities and sports. He had a great love for our Savior Jesus Christ, and attended Moses Lake Christian Church.

Bill is survived by his children Jeff Huff of Moses Lake, Washington, Dan (Kim Sheide) Huff of Idaho Falls, Idaho, Angie (Kevin) Quinn of Puyallup, Washington and Bryan (Trish Boyle) Huff of Queen Creek, Arizona; six grandchildren Courtney (Dustin) Conder of Puyallup, Washington, Casee (Justin) White of Puyallup, Washington, Corey (Jamie Gardipe) Clark of Marshall, Washington, Jordan (Lindsey) Huff of Roy, Utah, Kelsey (Dylan) Pierce of Meridian, Idaho and Tyler Shuman of Santa Monica, California; and six great-grandchildren Keagan, Tavian and Callan Conder, Harrison and Heath White, and his only great-granddaughter Tate Pierce. Bill is also survived by his sister whom he adored, Dorothy DalSoglio of Sandy, Utah.

He was preceded in death by his loving wife Karen, his parents and his brothers Russell and Stanley.

Memorial services will be held on Sept. 17, 2022 at 11 a.m. at Kayser’s Chapel of Memories, Moses Lake, Washington. Interment will be at Guarding Angels Cemetery in Moses Lake, Washington, next to his sweetheart.

The family wishes to thank the staff at St Luke’s Rehabilitation in Spokane as well as the Hospice House of Spokane for the care of our father during this difficult time.
