Obituary

Robert David Huff, 62, of Brigantine, passed away on Thursday, January 25, 2018 in his home. Bob was born on May 23, 1955, son of the late Robert and Ruth Huff.

Bob was born and raised in Middle Township, with his two sisters, Linda (Crouch) and Barbara (Springer). In 1973, he graduated from Middle Township High School. While in school he was a statewide all-star athlete for football, basketball, and baseball. After high school, he attended Staunton Military Academy where he became a stand-out defensive end. The University of Delaware then recruited Bob to play Blue Hen football on a full athletic scholarship. Bob enjoyed this time with his fraternity brothers of Sigma Phi Epsilon while earning his Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice.

Bob dedicated over 30 years to his career with the New Jersey Casino Control Commission. During that time, he met his future wife, Sarah (Sheehan) Huff, and her two sons, Sean and Michael Nee. Bob and Sarah married on August 19, 1995 and welcomed their daughter, Haley, to the family in 1997.

Bob loved being a father and a step-father. He was an avid golfer, a football fan, was well-liked by his friends and colleagues, and was known for his quick-witted humor. After Hurricane Sandy in 2012, Bob put his carpentry expertise to work in repairing his Brigantine home. In 2013, Bob was diagnosed with lymphoma and fought the battle with strength and optimism which led to a successful remission.

Bob is survived by his wife, sisters, step-sons, daughter, grandson, nieces, nephews, and in-laws.

In lieu of a formal service, Bob requested that his family and friends gather for a casual celebration of his life. Feel free to wear your favorite sweatshirt/hoodie as Bob would have wanted. The celebration will be held at the Brigantine American Legion, 3218 W Brigantine Ave, Brigantine, NJ 08203 on Saturday, February 3rd from 1:00 pm - 5:00pm.
