Ronald Wayne Huffman

How dare the sun shine
Or the stars glitter in the dusky evening sky
How dare the world keep rushing by
When your hand has been taken from mine
What can ever be so serene
As the quiet moments we enjoyed in one another’s company
How dare life keep going by
When you are no longer mine.

Ronald Wayne Huffman was born on December 25, 1975… on Christmas day. It was a special day indeed when he came into this world. Known to everyone as simply “Wayne,” his parents share that he was an intelligent and trustworthy individual even when he was very young. His spirit of endurance and honesty carried on into his adulthood as well. He was always helping people and took pride in a job well done. Wayne was a faithful father, husband and friend with plenty of humor and love to go around.

Although he was born in Independence, Missouri, life took him many places where he made an unforgettable impression on all those he knew. He has lived in Oklahoma City, Midwest City, Moore, and Norman, Oklahoma, as well as Hermann, Missouri and most recently Henderson and Las Vegas, Nevada. He passed away on November 24, 2010 at St Rose San Martin Hospital where the Emergency Room and ICU staff was impressive and courageous. Funeral Services are scheduled on Wednesday, December 1, 2010 at 1:00 PM. Pastor Gant from Central Christian Church will be presiding at La Paloma Funeral Services: 5450 Stephanie Street in Henderson, Nevada.

Taken from us at the age of 34, he is survived by his wife and two young daughters, a grandfather, father, mothers, and six younger siblings living in Oklahoma, Missouri, and Nevada. But that is only the tip of the iceberg of family and friends who love and will dearly miss this unique and ultimately classy man. In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund is being set up through Bank of America for medical expenses and his daughters’ education. Please contact the family at or 702-378-0725 for more information until the account information is posted. Thank you for your kindness and support. We look forward to meeting again in Heaven someday.

    I sit around and wonder,
    and watch the days go by.
    I look at all the pictures,
    and ask, why did you have to die?

    You’ve always been there for me,
    because you were my best friend,
    and I was always there for you
    until the very end.

    But now it’s time to let you go,
    your spirit now is free,
    Even though you won’t really be gone,
    because you’ll live inside of me.

    So when we have to leave you
    at your resting place,
    I will always remember
    your smiling, handsome face.

    This is hardly a goodbye,
    so I won’t weep anymore,
    because now you’re in a better place
    then you ever were before.

    You know that I will miss you,
    and I’ll think about you everyday
    you’ll always be my best friend,
    and that’s all I have to say.

  • I am so sorry for your loss. May “the God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) comfort and soothe your heart. His promises, found in the Holy Scriptures, can offer much hope. It assures us at John 5:28,29 that our loved ones will be remembered and brought back to life in the resurrection. Please allow God’s Word to strengthen you and help you to endure this most difficult time.

    You made a promise to Ben 15 years ago that you would take care of our little girl and be the best husband, father and provider you could be. You kept that promise. We have always been proud of you and want to thank you for keeping your promise to us. Your daughters are beautiful, strong and happy girls and your love and consistency made them that way. You will always be in our hearts and we promise to love and take care of your family for you. Love, Ben and Rhonda

    Daddy, you were the best father a girl could ask for. You were always stern and demanding….. that is what made me love you, you were one of a kind. you were there for me when I needed a friend and you always had some old junk car for me to work on and that made the time I spent with you worth while. I know that I was never the best daughter but I want you to know this because I could not stand up and cry in front of people at the memorial service. You were my rock and now I feel your job will never end whether you are in heaven or even if you were still standing on earth.
    Here is what I want you to know daddy ….

    You were my rock
    the only one to see me for me
    you were the only one to care
    about the way I acted
    you were there for me
    I was there for you

    I will be their friend, their sister, their daughter, their niece, and there grand-daughter too
    All those who loved you I will forever love too
    I will always love you and and I will always know you loved me too

    I wrote that poem the night Wayne passed away. It was the day before Thanksgiving 2010 and the sunset that evening was way too beautiful for such an awful time. I was exhausted, lonely and afraid. Since that day, I have felt much less than myself, broken, not nearly strong enough. But I am finally fighting my way out of the fog. And believe me, getting the shattered bits of yourself together after such a tragedy is a FIGHT. You end up losing your way as you try to pick up the pieces. Most of the time I tried to keep myself too busy to feel much. I will never forget about my Big Wayne and who he was. Coworkers and friends he never met all know who he was because I talk about him all the time. All of you who had the awesome pleasure of knowing my husband, you were truly blessed. He never met a stranger and was the best friend anyone could have ever asked for. It is unbelievable that four years have gone by. So much has changed, but he will live on inside our hearts forever. Thank you God for the time we had together, and I look forward to seeing him again on the other side.

  • I still miss you Daddy
