Danny Hufferd, age 77, of Midvale, Idaho, passed away at St. Alphonsus Hospital, Nampa, Idaho on Friday, Nov. 29, 2019.
Danny was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and brother.
He is survived by his wife, Mary; six children, Bruce, Penny, Angel, Donald, Darrcy and David; 16 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren and two siblings, Portia and Donny.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Daniel and Ruby and two brothers, Gene and Mickey.
Danny Hufferd was born Nov. 24, 1942, in Rockford, Ill., to Daniel and Ruby Hufferd.
Soon after his birth the family moved to Iola, where he grew up as a farm boy and matured into a lovely young man. He often spoke of the good times he had as a child, going noodling and playing in the creek with the Sinclair boys. He loved his job and worked hard all his life. He worked a total of 57 years as a pipeliner alongside his best bud/brother Tommy Hardwick. He loved his bologna sandwiches and when traveling with his young family they would stop at rest areas and enjoy a bologna sandwich. Well, Danny enjoyed them, the kids not so much. Danny enjoyed traveling and just taking a drive to look at farmland and equipment along the way. When shopping, his belief was if its not made in the U.S.A. dont buy it! He truly enjoyed meeting people and getting to know them. He could kick up a conversation with anyone and when parting he always thought of that person as a friend.
When Danny was home from working the pipeline you would most likely find him in his wood shop building something for Mary, his children, grandchildren or great-grandchildren. He was so talented. He built picture frames, hope chests, chairs, book cases, dressers and so much more. The last couple of years he made and donated a tack box to the winner of the Julie Kerner Memorial award for the Washington County Fair. He enjoyed time in his new tractor farming. He worked hard and took great pride in taking care of his 17 acres.
Danny cherished his wife, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. They were all very important to him. He loved his little Sadie girl and enjoyed taking her to her doggie spa days. Oh, Danny Boy, you will be greatly missed and will have a special place in our hearts forever.
At Dannys request there will be no service. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Volunteer Midvale Fire & Ambulance District, P.O. Box 43, Midvale, Idaho 83645
