Johnny Leon Huffstetler, Jr., 51, of Hamburg, passed away on Monday, April 25, 2022. He was born in Oak Harbor, Washington, on November 17, 1970, to his parents, Johnny Leon Sr., and Beverly Anne Williams Huffstetler. Johnny was a 1989 graduate of Hamburg High School and a member of the Christian faith.
For over twenty years, Johnny worked for the Bemis Bag Company in Crossett (currently named Hood). In his free time, he enjoyed hunting, fishing, grilling, hanging out with his buddies around a fire, and doing anything where he could operate heavy equipment. He was also a member of the Longshots hunting club.
Johnny was full of personality with his quick wit, and could make you laugh hysterically with his ability to pull a joke out of thin air. He had a natural genuineness that attracted friends, and many were even fortunate to be called his buddies. He loved his family dearly, but the two things that brought him the most joy in life were spending time on his tractor or with his “Lil curtain climber,” which is what he called his daughter Peyton, who he could not have been prouder of.
He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Raymond and Sally Williams, and Troy Huffstetler.
He leaves behind his daughter, Peyton Huffstetler of Crossett; parents, Johnny, Sr., and Beverly Huffstetler of Hamburg; one sister, Tracy Crowson (Michael) of Sheridan, Arkansas; his grandmother, Margaret Huffstetler of Mena, Arkansas; and a very special friend and companion, Linda Collum of Bastrop, Louisiana; along with two nieces, Cassie Gray (Jacob) of Malvern, Arkansas, and Caitlyn Crowson also of Sheridan; one great-niece, Phoebe Gray; and two granddogs, Bazz and Chewy.
A memorial visitation for family and friends will be from 5:00-7:00 p.m., Friday, April 29th, at Medders Funeral Home, 1564 Hwy 52 W, in Crossett.
A Private Graveside Service will be held at Promise Land Cemetery, with Rev. Toby Austin officiating.
