Elmer L. Huff was a railroad man --
A first class Telegrapher-Clerk,
His son, E. L. Huff Jr. (known as Larry),
The elder and youngster worked for Union Pacific --
Both men knew Jesus as their personal savior,
There came a hefty windfall to E. L. Huff Jr.
It makes sense that Larry would give it to the Church --
E. Larry Huff Jr. became this writer's first mentor --
The Spokane Telegraph School had taught the skill --
In seventy-four, faithful, God-fearing Larry
His devoted wife Lauretta sat at his final bedside
Mrs. Huff looked again into his bright, loving eyes --
Just a slight sigh was heard as her husband slipped away --
