Obituary

Billy was born in Dorchester, Virginia, to Olen Clayton & Lilly Mae (Williams) Huff. Billy was raised in Wise, VA and while growing up, he enjoyed playing football and attended Wise High School. When Bill was 17 he boldly enlisted in the U.S. Navy. His mother had high hopes for his future and didn’t want to see him go into coal mining, so she signed off on the paperwork allowing him to be enlisted. He enlisted during the Korean Conflict and the military was a perfect fit for Bill. He made his way through the ranks and became a Crew Chief on an Aircraft Carrier. Bill was in his home town when he met a lady named Barbara Tipton and she stole his heart, and the two married on May 12, 1962, in D.C. They were blessed with two sons, Randy and Michael and Bill had a son Bill Jr, from a previous marriage. After Bill was honorably discharged from the Navy, he re-enlisted, but this time in the U.S. Army. He served during the Vietnam War and made it through two tours. He specialized in Air Traffic Control during his time in the Army. After a 23 year military career, Bill retired in 1978 as a SFC. Bill earned several medals during his military career, one being a Bronze Star Medal. Bill was able to become a civilian Air Traffic Controller and continue working doing what he loved. He loved his job so much that he claimed he would work in the tower without pay if they’d let him. He worked in Enid for a short time and later worked for Max Westheimer Airport in Norman for nearly 27 years. Bill and his wife Barbara were very active in their community. The two were faithful members at Woodland Hills Baptist Church. They were in charge of sending care packages to active duty family members that were associated with Woodland Hills. Bill was also active with the Veteran's Readers Group at Bridge Creek Elementary and was involved with the U.S. Army Otter Caribou Assoc., American Legion Post 261, the Blanchard -VFW, and Paralyzed Veterans of America. Bill was preceded in death by his father, Olen Clayton Huff; mother Lilly Mae Huff; two sisters, Sandy and Mabel; two brothers, Curtis and Bobby Wayne; and grandson, Alex Huff. He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Barbara Huff; son, Bill Huff Jr and wife Ruby; son, Randy Huff and wife Stephanie; son, Michael Huff and wife Anita; eleven grandchildren and sixteen great-grandchildren; and twin brothers, Jim and John Huff. Bill’s family was a patriotic family. He and his three sons served in the military and he has a grandson that is currently serving.

Billy J Huff. I first met him when I reported to Fort Sill in 1974. He was tough, as he had to be, as the Tower Chief, but he helped make me a better soldier, and ATC

We got reacquainted some years later, and I went to see him on one of his final shifts at Westhimer Tower, as first class ATC operation that he started some years earlier.

When I would pass through OKC we would get together for dinner, and he always had some words of wisdom to L ay on me as we talked about the good ole days.

Bill was a humble man who was grateful for what life offered him. He was so proud of his family. I almost feel like I know you all as he couldn’t go two minutes with mentioning you.

Your loss is felt by many. God Bless the United States of America 🇺🇸

I offer my sincere condolences to family, friends and loved ones of Billy Joe.
He will be deeply missed. His upbeat personality, his uncanny ability to never meet a stranger and to never leave anyone without them laughing or smiling, was a true gift. I use to love seeing his name in my email box, for I could count on it being a great joke, a great story of his military days or gushing with pride over his family. Often it was a mixture. He and I would swap stories of our Dads, both of us discovering that our respective fathers were also our favorite uncles. I recall telling Billy Joe how much he reminded me of me of my father and him telling me he took that as a great compliment, having thought the world of him. When we connected on FB, we discovered we also shared the same politics, which really took me by surprise, but quite a pleasant one. We shared many a rant and humorous memes on that subject, as well. I can honestly say in all my years BJoe is the only person to ever tell me that I was "finer than the hair on an airy angel". I strongly suspect that will remain the case for the rest of my years. Farewell and rest in peace, cuz. To borrow your words- You were a "good 'un".
