Remembering Bill Huffhines
JEFFERSON COUNTY - Friends and family are remembering Beaumont architect Bill Huffhines following a tragic accident on Saturday.
The 80-year-old was killed while mowing grass on his property in the 22000 block of Highway 365 in Fannett.
Jefferson county sheriff's deputies say the tractor he was on entered a pond and flipped over pinning him underneath.
Efforts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful.
Huffhines was a retired architect. He designed the Region 5 building in
Beaumont and is credited with leaving behind a legacy of work with
area school districts, hospitals and projects for the housing and urban development program.
KFDM received nearly 100 comments from people sharing their condolences on our Facebook page and we'd like to share a few of them with you:

Funeral arrangements are pending with Broussards on Major Drive in Beaumont.
