STILLWATER - William “Huffer” D’Avignon, 74, of State Route 32, died peacefully in the comfort of his home on October 8th following a short illness. Born in Mechanicville on August 10, 1944, son of the late William and Mary Roberts D’Avignon, he was a 1964 graduate of Stillwater High School. He joined the US Army after high school and proudly served his country until he was honorably discharged.

Huffer was a longtime member of the Stillwater Fire Department and the Stillwater Rescue Squad. In his spare time, he enjoyed trips to Racino with Ruth as well as dinner dates with her, taking rides and trips for ice cream.

He is survived by his loving companion of 50 years, Ruth Figiel, sister Mary Pat(Burton) Parry and her children Bill and Cathy Parry, all of Stillwater, Ruth’s boys; whom he helped raise over the years, Edward(Paula) and Paul(Theresa) Kipp and 4 grand and 11 great grandchildren.
