4 Condolences for Dr. Stephen David Huckleberry

  • To Janet and family, I want to extend my sincerest sympathies over the loss of Dr. Huckleberry. I worked with him at the VA Hospital for years. I left the VA to pursue my career in real estate but remember him very well. My husband and I also lived in 4 Seasons (our home backed to your circle) so we were neighbors as well. It is a difficult time I know and my thoughts and prayers are with you. God Bless you all.

  • I was very sorry to hear about Steve. Always treated me with respect, and I enjoyed being around him when he came in to visit the family. To Jan and family, you are in my thoughts and prayers. May God give you the peace and rest you need at this moment. If I can ever do anything for any of the family, please let me know. God Bless you all. David Godfrey & Family
