In Memory of Glenn E. Huffer
By the Delmarva Chapter, Delaware
On June 6, 1944 (known as D-Day), America sent its soldiers to free Europe from the tyrant Adolph Hitler. History tells us we lost thousands of young men defending freedom that day.
Sixty-nine years later to the day, the RMEF’s Delmarva Chapter lost its “general,” Glenn E. Huffer, our founder and past chairman for six years.
Glenn was the backbone of the chapter, always thinking of ways to bring support to RMEF and conserve and enhance habitat for elk, which he loved to hunt on his many excursions out West. Simply put, Glenn loved the organization and what it stands for.
He also loved his country. In 1954 he joined the Army National Guard, served 25 years and was honorably discharged in 1979.
Glenn passed away at age 76 while out hunting turkeys. He died doing something he loved, hunting turkeys and dreaming about that big 6-point bull elk he hoped to find on his next hunting trip West.
Glenn left behind a devoted wife, daughters, stepsons, nieces, nephews and grandchildren. They will miss him immensely.
Great people with devotion to country, belief in a mission to conserve habitat for elk and other wildlife, and a faith that our children’s children will be able to see elk roaming the mountains and meadows for years to come is proof that men like Glenn Huffer are what make the RMEF the greatest volunteer organization in the country.
