Huff, Anthony J., 71, a long-time resident of Fountain Valley, California, died on April 10, 2017. For the past five years, he was a resident of Sea Cliff Nursing Home in Huntington Beach, California. Anthony was born to John and Eleanor (Watkins) Huff on December 2, 1945, in Shrewsbury, England. He came to the United States at an early age with his mother as part of "Operation War Bride." After arriving in New York City aboard the John Ericcson, they traveled cross-country by train to rejoin his father. Anthony grew up in Worland and Rock Springs, Wyoming, and spent many summers on his uncle's farm in Nebraska. He graduated from Rock Springs High School in 1966 and moved to Denver, Colorado and received a vocational certificate in auto body repair. In 1975, he moved to southern California to open a door-and-window business, which he operated for several years. He was a retired sales representative for Home Depot. Anthony was a member of the Fountain Valley United Methodist Church, where he met Evelyn (Kurtzer) Hurst. They were married on August 27, 2000. He was a man of character, kindness, and support for others. Anthony is survived by his wife, Evelyn of Fountain Valley; two step-sons, Steven Hurst of Laguna Hills, California and Mark (Kellie) Hurst of Rancho Santa Margarita, California; step-mother, Joan Huff of Kissimmee, Florida; sister, Leagh (Gary) Krueger of Redding, California; two half-sisters, Patricia (Rick) Booth of Gambrills, Maryland and Jacqueline Doxtader of Oneida, New York; two half-brothers, Clifford (Marsha) Huff of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Roland Dyer of Oneonta, New York; a step-brother, Gerald (Connie) Gasperetti of Kissimmee, Florida; a step-sister, Sheila (Richard) Keating of Rock Springs, Wyoming; and three step-grandchildren, eleven nieces and nephews, and numerous cousins. He was preceded in death by parents, John Huff and Eleanor Dyer; step-mother, Hazel (Randolph) Huff; and half-brother, Chester Huff. As Anthony's remains were donated for medical research, cremation will take place at a future time, with his ashes taken to England for committal. A memorial service will be held this summer in Nebraska
