Remembering Bill Huffman, 1945-2021

Remembering Bill Huffman, 1945-2021

With great sadness, we share the news of Bill Huffman’s passing on August 3, 2021 after years of struggling with ALS. 

Bill was a fixture in the industry during his 33 years of service to Farmers’ Rice Cooperative. He was an encyclopedia of industry knowledge and made it his life’s work to advance California rice. Bill made an effort to befriend everyone he ran into whether a politician or a doorman. After a few minutes of banter he figured out that he likely knew someone they knew. Bill loved politics and always a gentleman. Ever quick with a joke or a prank, he will be missed.
