I have been so blessed to have known Walter and his family.
He was such an inspiration to me and helped me along the way in my spiritual walk.
Walter called me his sister in Christ and he was also a Great friend to me.
When I helped care for him and Nancy we would read God's word and listen to Gospel music
for hours. He was the kindest man I've known and I will miss him dearly.

We sure loved Walter and Nancy while they were at Summit Heights Fellowship in Hawkins, Texas. We are praying for Nancy and the family and know that Walter is now singing in Glory and waiting on us to join him soon. One of our favorite memory’s was when we were three days from opening our new building and we were reading through the scripture in preparation for the grand opening. People would sign up to read in 1 hour intervals and Walter signed up multiple hours. One passage he was reading he would come to the Amen and when he read it, he would raise his arms and shout at the top of his lungs, AAMEEEEENNN! We all loved hearing him read, we could hear him all over the building,. We still talk about it today when we think about those early days at Summit! Praise God for Walter Huffman!

I've so many memories of my time with my Uncle Walter. Great memories. He was more than instrumental in my career path, opening doors for my future. I'm forever thankful for that. But more than anything, I'm thankful for his love and constant nature and being grounded in His beliefs. His love for His Family. Once committed, he never wavered. An example for all. I wish I could be there today and for the services to show my respect for my Uncle, for my Friend. I will miss you. I'll always remember you. I'm comforted to know you are healed in every way. I love you. Your nephew, Bobby

Walter was always acknowledged on first impressions as a "sweet" man. It brings me to this verse in the bible, Deuteronomy 6 vs. 5 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. He always put God first in his life then my Mother and family. He was a true impression of a Christian man in my life. I rejoice your entrance into the Kingdom of Heaven and will miss you dearly. Love, your daughter Danna.

Walter was a great man and many people called him their friend, whenever someone was in need Walter was there with open arms to help anyway he could. Walter was a son of God and walked beside Jesus all his life as long as I knew him. For forty years I was honored to call him my Dad may you rest in peace in heaven as you smile down upon us. your son Terry
