Michael Julian Huffer
Born on September 16, 1947, Michael Julian Huffer, also known as, “Mike” or “Iron Mike,” as he laughingly nicknamed himself passed away suddenly on Friday night, September 22, 2017. Mike was a simple man. He was content with very little and always happiest when visiting, laughing with friends and family and playing music. At a very early age in life, Mike recognized he was blessed with the gift of music and this became his passion. He completed his studies and earned a degree in sociology at Missouri Western State University. Although, his one true passion in life would always be his love for music and entertainment. He played piano, bass guitar, B3 Hammond organ, and had a strong voice that barely needed a microphone. Some of his favorite musicians were Nat King Cole, Louis Prima, The Blue Brothers, Louie Armstrong, James Brown, Johnny Mathis, and a countless number of old blues and jazz bands. Mike will be remembered for his unique musical talent and his ability to connect with people and develop friendships everywhere he went. He was also a man of God who embraced people of all religions. He regularly attended both a Jewish synagogue and played in a band at a Christian church. He had a heart miles deep; he kept a prayer journal with long lists of people that he’d pray for every morning. He knew the power of prayer and prioritized it in his life. Mike’s daughter Sarah was the “apple of his eye” whom he cherished and passed along his gifts of music, generosity, and love of people. He was always quick to brag about Sarah because of the extraordinary amount of love he had, and will continue to have for her. Mike treated his son-in-law Seth as if he were his own, and he was overwhelmed with joy when his grandson Nixon Jude came into this world on June 26, 2015. He purchased a children’s book club membership and to this day, Sarah and Seth receive a monthly book addressed to “Master Nixon Hobart.” This is just one of many examples of how Mike expressed his kindness, and love to those close to him. Mike was one of 9 siblings in total. He was preceded in death by his parents, Tura Fanning and Forest Huffer; brothers David Huffer, Lewis Mules; and sisters Joy Homan, Jeanette Kontomitras, and Carmen Huffer. Survivors include his daughter Sarah Hobart, son-in-law Seth, grandson Nixon Jude, sister Deanna Potts, brothers John Huffer, Thomas Huffer, numerous cousins, nieces, and his “honorary granddaughter” Paige Schubert. Funeral Services will be 10 am Wednesday, September 27, 2017 at the Rupp Funeral Home. The family will receive friends from 6-8 pm Tuesday, at the Rupp Funeral Home, The interment will be at the Mount Olivet Cemetery. online condolence and obituary www.ruppfuneral.com
