Coy Huffman Obituary, Death – During the period that Coy Huffman served as the chute boss, he was held in high esteem by a sizable number of rodeo cowboys and cowgirls, who saw him as a godlike leader and a tower of strength.
He presided over church services at a substantial number of rodeos, prayed in the chutes before each competition, and was always prepared to offer a helping hand or a “pick-me-up” to a person who was struggling spiritually or emotionally. He also prayed in the chutes before each competition. The day before yesterday, the Lord brought him back to his home as a sign of thanks for all he had done for him. You can see the following excerpt of a tale on his Facebook profile. It reads, “At the National Finals Rodeo, I had the opportunity to get my photo taken with Larry. When it came to giving me words of encouragement or wise advice.
He never skipped a beat or missed an opportunity. Just before we left the nation, our private plane took off from Edmonton, Alberta, where we were staying, and we were welcomed by the breathtaking sight of the Canadian sunrise. He spoke to her in a hushed tone as he knee down next to her. He informed her, “Just think, you work for the Guy who created that beautiful sunrise.” Would you agree that this seems to be trying to teach us something about both Coy and Larry.
