Kenneth Huff

Chesterfield |

Kenneth Leslie Huff, 74, of Chesterfield went to his Heavenly Home at 4:04 PM on Monday, April 22, 2024.  Kenny was born on August 20, 1949, in Carlinville, IL.  He was the son of the late Harold and Geradine Huff.  He married Rosemary Pressler in Carlinville, IL on June 7, 1969.  He was a member of Southwestern High School Class of 1967.  Over the years he worked various jobs including; Chesterfield FS, a Farm Hand for Vance Dwyer, Laborer for Central Laborers out of Jacksonville, IL and Full Time Farmer. 

He was an avid gardener and loved canning and pickling the vegetables and then sharing his bounty with others.  His large garden was his pride and joy during the summer months.  You could find him out there “supervising” and ensuring things were done to his approval.  He would tell everyone what all he had canned each day and what he was looking to can or pickle next.  His pickled beets and pickled okra were specifically asked for at potlucks and church gatherings.  He loved to take others’ scrap and turn it into his treasures.  He loved scaping metal and stripping wire to convert it into his spending cash.  In the winter, you could find him sitting at the kitchen table picking out walnuts.  He would be willing to trade a jar of nuts for fresh baked goods.

He is survived by his son Daryn (LaCreatia) Huff of Greenfield; daughter Lori Huff of Kirksville, MO; daughter Jessica (Jon) Fish of Trimble, MO and daughter-in-law Debbie Huff of Chesterfield.  Grandchildren:  Alex (Kacie) Huff, Derek & Caleb Huff, Michaela (Justin) Goode, Camryn & Bryce Huff, Jonathon, Kenlee & Lauren Fish.  Great Grandchildren: Brynna Huff, Bailey, Xoe & Dixie Green, Adelyn and Hudson Goode; and multiple nieces and nephews. His sister, Lois White and companion Randy Link of Carlinville.

He is preceded in death by his wife Rosie, his parents Harold and Geraldine Huff, his brother Lyndall Huff, infant sister Joyce Huff, and his son Bryan Huff.

Burial will be in Prairie Lawn Cemetery in Carlinville, IL.
