Mr. Guy Thomas Huffman, age 74, of Gainesville, GA passed away February 4, 2022. Mr. Huffman was born in Sulligent, Alabama on June 17, 1947 to Grady and Sovola (King) Huffman and grew up in Memphis, Tennessee. He was the youngest of five children. He proudly served in the U.S. Army for 12 years, including a tour in Vietnam from 1968-1969. He received training for food inspection while in the army and continued in the same line of work after being honorably discharged in 1976. He worked for several years as corporate sanitarian for McCormick Spice Company. During this time he traveled for work in the U.S. and other countries where he met and befriended many people, some of whom remained lifelong friends.
Guy moved to the Gainesville area in 1995 and retired from his work as a food sanitation consultant in 2003. When not working, he enjoyed golfing, cooking, playing cards and collecting classic cars.
If you met Guy, you liked him. If you got to know him, you loved him. He enjoyed making people laugh, telling a good story, and helping others. He loved life and fought hard to stay here as long as he could. His personality was larger than life. His presence in this world will be missed by so many for a very long time.
