  1. Whenever Larry and I went to Huddle House, we encountered your mom and dad, Brian and Dale. What a fun couple! Larry and Huey are swapping stories right now.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  2. I’m so sorry to hear this news Aggie, Brian & Dale. I remember all of the times Tom and I walked down to your house and Tom and Huey sat outside and you and I sat in the kitchen, all of us inside if the weather was bad.
    The boys were little when we moved there. May your memories help you through.

  3. Aggie, I am so sorry to hear of Huey’s passing. I was just thinking about you guys yesterday, you were both such fun people. I didn’t know if you still lived in the area in your sweet house. I can remember Huey’s hardy laughs when he would remanence and tell stories. I’ll never forget years ago when my kids were little ,you gave us a coupon for a free family photo sitting. You were so kind saying a family with kids as beautiful as ours needed to take a lot of photos often. God Bless you and your family!

  4. Oh my..where do u start. He and Marion were more like brothers than cousins. They talked about their childhood adventures, military time, working at fiat all those years and the many trips back to emmettsburg,iowa. I really enjoyed all the times we spent together and my oh my..Huey could talk your leg off. I hope they are together again, telling all kinds of stories! Judy argabright and family.

  5. Aggie – you and Huey were special friends to Karl and me all the time we were in IL-T and later. What fun we had on our gold wing trips. I loved seeing you two and hearing Huey’s stories, He was a great friend to me. Mark and Scott send their condolences as they remembered their times with Huey. Thinking of you and your family at this time. Shirley

  7. Aggie, Brian and Dale,
    Our sincere sympathy on the passing of Huey. We would run into him when we’ve been out and about, mostly eating out at Parkway and other places.
