Don Huffman was a patriotic man who served in the Air Force and who loved his animals. He enjoyed being outdoors and seeing all the nature around him. He was an active member of Ash Creek Baptist Church in Azle, Texas. He loved his family more than life itself. He had a big smile, a loving heart, and a kind and generous spirit. He will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
