Little League® International remembers the life and accomplishments of Virginia District 11 Administrator Robert “Bob” Huff. He was 84.
Mr. Huff, a native of Russell County, Virginia, and resident of Lebanon, Virginia, at the time of his passing, dedicated 62 years of his life to Little League.
Beginning his volunteer service as a coach and team manager in the Cinch River Little League (1960-69), Mr. Huff continued managing Little League teams in the Lebanon Little League for 11 more years (1970-1980) before his election as League President in 1981. He served as Lebanon Little League President for the next seven years (until 1988).
Much of Mr. Huff’s service came at the district level. He was Virginia Assistant District 11 Administrator for 16 years before his election as District Administrator in 1988. Ten years later, in 1998, Mr. Huff was elected to represent the Southeastern Region on the Little League International Board of Directors and served a four-year term (1998-2002). He was also the curator, primary fundraiser, and maintenance staff for the Virginia Little League Hall of Fame.
Mr. Huff was preceded in death by his parents, Roy, and Juanita Huff; brothers, Gene, Ernest, and Lowell; and sister, Evelyn. He is survived by his wife of 67 years, Margaret; son, Robert, Jr. (Rick); daughter, Elaine; grandchildren, Summer, Samantha, Anna, and Andy; great grandchildren, Liliana, and Oliver; brothers John, and Jim; and sisters, Peggy, Linda, Sue, and Janice.
