Worked with Bob at Crawford's farm, way, way back in the day. He was a good fellow then, too. Our condolences to family. Butch and Roseanne Allen

Whether stories from my father of bulldozers pushing over trailers, raising h*ll on Argyle's dirt roads, or my own memories of little league, birthday parties, etc., the Humiston family has been a big part of my family. Our heartfelt condolences to you all. We're sending a check to the Youth Commission out of appreciation for the Humiston's role in my own.

Josh, Linda and I' (Gifford's Farm and Pa's Pistols) were sorry to hear of your dad's accidents. Life sometimes can be very cruel at times but it is part of life, we loose loved ones. No one can say they jnow how you feel, because we don't. We know what the pain of losing a loved one, but be assured that it is God's plan that we will see them again and will never be a part again. God Bless you and your family and make sure you keep telling stories of your dad to your son, so that we will get to know him for the rest of his life.
