Obituary

 

Steven Huddleston, 80, was born July 13, 1941 to William and Dorothy Huddleston in Richmond, Indiana.  He passed away January 4, 2022 in his home in Wellston, Oklahoma.

Steve proudly served his country, entering the Navy at 17 years old, serving as a corpsman on the U.S.S. Hunt.  Following his service, he selected beef for Fleming Foods until he retired as a supervisor.

Steve loved his family more than anything, he was the glue that held the Huddleston family together.  He had a call list that he was faithful to every week, and we will miss the sound of his voice saying ‘Hello’ and always an ‘I love you’ before he hung up.  Steve made everyone feel a part of the family and was generous and always there to help.

Steve could grill the best steaks and would often bring a box to an event and feed everyone.  He loved feeding his birds, as well as enjoying taking pictures, including tornados and lightning.   He grew amazing tomatoes, and even a 100-pound pumpkin!

Steve was also active in both the Masonic Lodge and the American Legion; he loved raising funds for those in need, helping with eye exams at schools, and taking fruit baskets to widows and other elderly members.

Steve recently wrote about all the things he had survived in his 80 years (making him the oldest living Huddleston) – two head-on collisions, a close lightning strike, motorcycle wrecks, a house fire, and 2 strokes.  The second stroke in 1996 was massive leaving him in a coma for three weeks.  Although the doctors gave him no hope, God had a different plan for him.  He took his first step a month after the stroke and has since walked thousands of miles; 5 miles daily and numerous marathons.  He was called the ‘miracle man’ and worked as a volunteer for stroke survivors for many years.

Steve was preceded in death by his precious wife Jeweletta “Punkin” Huddleston; parents, William and Dorothy; brothers, Dan, Gary, and Mike Huddleston; and his sister, Carol Jones.  Survivors include his daughter, Ronna and husband James “Bo” Mullins of Cynthiana, Indiana; sisters, Mary Shaneyfelt of Winchester, Iris and husband Morris Jenkins of Modoc, Indiana; grandson, Jason and wife Laura of Evansville, Indiana; granddaughter, Calah and husband Chase Carlock of Owensville, Indiana; great-grandchildren, Tyler, Kinsley, and Kooper Mullins of Evansville, Indiana and Collin, Annalise, and Emily Carlock of Owensville, Indiana; along with numerous nieces, nephews, other family and friends.
