Edward A. Huth, Postal Service retiree Feb. 23, 1912 -- Dec. 19, 2006

Edward A. Huth of Amherst, a World War II veteran and Postal Service retiree, died Tuesday in Waterfront Health Care Center. He was 94.

Born in Buffalo, Mr. Huth served in the Army during World War II with 350th Air Service Squadron, 324th Service Group, in Tunisia and Italy. He attained the rank of sergeant.

A resident of Cheektowaga, Mr. Huth was a letter carrier for the Postal Service, and retired as an inspector. Before joining the Postal Service, he ran his family's grocery store on Wende and East Ferry streets in Buffalo.

In his later years, Mr. Huth was cared for by his great-niece, Deborah Smith, who said her great-uncle had an "artistic eye." He was a member of the Cinema Club, an organization of local people who would film their own movies, she said, and also was adept at still photography, oil painting and crafting model airplanes.

His wife, the former Mary DuPont, died in 2001.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be offered at 9:30 a.m. Friday in Queen of Martyrs Catholic Church, 180 George Urban Blvd., Cheektowaga, following prayers at 9 in Melvin J. Sliwinski Funeral Home, 85 George Urban Blvd., Cheektowaga.
