Wesley Lamar Huff

January 24, 1957 - July 13, 2022

Wesley Lamar Huff, 65, of Beaumont, died Wednesday, July 13, 2022. He was born on January 24, 1957, Beaumont, to Charlotte Ann Lee and Raymond Lamar Huff.

Wesley was the definition of a man’s man. He was a devoted husband, a loving father, a caring brother and son. He was one of the greatest friends that many could have ever imagined having. He was born and raised in Beaumont, Texas, where he grew up racing dirt bikes, playing baseball, hunting, fishing, and water skiing. In Beaumont, he was a graduate of French High School in 1975. He was an avid baseball player, playing for Panola Junior College. After college, he was a member of Pipe Fitter local 195. Afterwards he went on to work at Total refineries where he also touched many lives. He and his wife, Terri, were married for 41 years, and had three sons, Dustin, Justin, and Austin. His family was the thing he was most proud of in life. Many people say he was the best fisherman they had ever known and could catch a fish in a toilet bowl. Growing up he helped his mom in every way he possibly could, always being there for his brothers and friends. Wes was one of the strongest men this world may ever see and proved that every second until cancer took his last breath away. We don’t focus on the final days, but on the many years before where he made his impact on this earth and touched the hundreds, if not thousands, of lives. As one person recently told our family, “If the world was made up of more of your dad, this world would be a much better place.”

Survivors include his wife, Terri Huff, of Beaumont; mother, Charlotte Rayburn and her husband, Kenneth, of Winnie; children, Dustin Lamar Huff, Justin Taylor Huff and his wife, Kaye Ellen; and Austin Elisha Huff; grandchildren, Hank Lamar Huff; Stella Dean Huff; Jake Benjamin Huff; Harrison Taylor Huff; and Dane Wesley Huff; brothers, Mike Huff and his wife, Chris; and Tracy Huff and his wife, Jolanda; nieces and nephews, Sam Huff, Tyler Huff, Taryn Holmes, Raylie Huff, Samantha Green, Garrett Abbo, Bryan Abbo, Trevor Abbo, and Laurie Wheeler; sister-in-law, Mary Harris; brother-in-law, Joel Abbo; and numerous other family members and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, Raymond Lamar Huff.

    The neighborhood will never be the same. Loved to stop and talk to Wes when he was outside. My prayers go out to the whole family. Umpiring the boys during their HS years at West Brook was always a joy.

    Chris Gonzales says:

    Terri , Dustin ,Justin and Austin,
    Like so many others I am saddened to hear of the passing of Wes. Although I didn’t see Wes on a regular basis when we did run into each other, it was like “old times”. I always respected Wes and as an under classman at FHS I was thrilled to have gotten his baseball uniform/number when uniforms were handed down! I know Wes impacted a lot of people with his genuine kindness, like he impacted me and I will miss that grin. I do pray that you will find comfort in each other and the Lord Jesus Christ, God Bless.

    Gary and Melissa Gallien says:

    I’ve always said that Wes is my best friend, but realized many years ago that Wes was everyone’s best friend. He was that guy we could all count on in good times and in bad. I never heard him say a bad word about anyone, and never heard anyone say a bad word about him. It was an honor to be one of Wes’ best friends, and I will always treasure that.
    Melissa and I offer our love and prayers to Terri, Dustin, Justin, Austin and entire Huff family.

    Go Rest High Upon That Mountain

    Jay Mandel says:

    I could not have asked for a finer gentleman to have had as an associate and friend.
    We work all of our lives to be able to finally retire and relax, knowing that getting up in the wee hours of the morning is our choice and not the demands of work. We can only trust that Wes was called early for a heavenly project of great importance. May God bless Wes and take care of him.
