On Sunday, April 14, Danny (Butch) Huddleston lost his courageous battle with cancer. Butch was born Oct. 25, 1942 to Noah (Bo) Huddleston and Peggy Baney Huddleston. He joined three older sisters, Nancy, Diane and Donna.
Butch was a Navy veteran, serving in Viet Nam.
He married Janice McFeron and they had five children; Suzie, Danny, Andy, Konnie and Bonnie. That marriage later ended in divorce. He was married for a short time to Jeanie Caulkin, that marriage also ended in divorce. On Sept. 17, 1994 he married the love of his life and soulmate, Marlene Currin.
Butch held many jobs during his lifetime including a faller, diesel mechanic, log truck driver and long haul trucker. His wife went with him for a few years. Butch was the strongest man I have ever known. He came across as rough, tough and grouchy, but really he had a heart of gold.
He is survived by his wife of 24 years, Marlene; his children Danny, Andy (Kim) and Konnie Huddleston, Bonnie (Woody) Woodmansee, stepchildren David, Daniel and Michael (Cheryl) Currin, Christina Braun, brothers Marvin (Selena) and Norman Huddleston, sisters Carol Willoughy and Marlene (Dolly) Huddleston, several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents, brother Kenneth, sisters Nancy, Diane and Donna, daughter Suzie, granddaughter Nicolette (Nikki) Litchfield and grandson Dylan Huddleston.
He has been cremated and a memorial will be held on Saturday, April 20 at 2 p.m. at the Eagles, 1304 Main St, Lewiston, with a covered dish to follow.
He was a much loved man and will be missed dearly by all of us. Rest in Peace, my love, until we meet again.
