Jerry Woodrow Huffman


It is with sincere sadness that I report that WV Trapshooter Jerry Huffman of Williamstown, WV passed away Thursday April 1 2021.

 Jerry was a genuinely good guy, always a smile on his face, always happy to see and talk to you, always happy to help youth shooters. He started registering targets in 1978 and amassed 43,900 singles, 42,675 handicap and 23,500 doubles during his shooting career.  At the WV State Shoot he would often stop by the office and tell the people working the shoot how much he appreciated the job they did and how well run the shoot was. He, along with others, would donate funds to help the youth shooter. Jerry often shot on a squad with Lonnie and Sandy Spencer who will miss him, as we all will.


JERRY WOODROW HUFFMAN, 72, of Williamstown, WV passed away April 1, 2021 after a brief illness.

Jerry graduated from Nicholas County High School and entered the United States Army as a Military Police Officer where he served in the Vietnam War.
