Departed in Palm Bay, Florida on December 7, 2018
Larry Hufford passed away on December 7, 2018, at the age of 68. Born in Greenville (Cornfield as he liked to call it), Ohio, on October 20, 1950, he was a graduate of Miami University with a B.S. in Science Education. Married in 1974, he was offered a teaching position in Lakeland, FL, where he and wife, Kathy, moved in 1975. A career change led to real estate sales, and later a general contractors license.
Following a move to Palm Bay in 1983, Larry co-founded Lifestyle Homes in 1984, where he remained as president and “senior old guy” until his death. He was an avid boater and fisherman, and long-time member of Sebastian Inlet Sportfishing Assoc. He was passionate about incorporating solar power in new home building practices, and was an advisory board member for the Florida Solar Energy Center. Larry loved classic cars, travel, and spending time with family and friends.
Larry is survived by his wife, Kathy, and daughters Heather Eden (Brett), and Karen Kicinski (Chris), both of Grant-Valkaria. His four grandchildren are Brock Eden, Gage Eden, Brooks Kicinski and Grace Kicinski. His siblings include brother Garry Hufford, and sisters Becky Newsom, Vicki Garber, and Polly Baltes, all of the Dayton, Ohio area.
The family will welcome friends to celebrate Larry’s life at an informal gathering on Sunday, January 6, 2019, from 4-7 pm at the Eau Gallie Yacht Club, 100 Datura Dr., Indian Harbor Beach
