Remembering Colorado's Buffalo Bill impersonator

KUSA - A lot of people called him Al but he was also known as Colorado’s Buffalo Bill. He was a reenactor who made appearances around the state.

All Huffman passed away Tuesday in Evergreen at age 84.

“A guy that a lot of people say was born 100 years too late,” said Al’s brother Clayton Huffman. “I would suspect there probably wasn’t anybody who knows as much about Buffalo Bill as he does.”

His daughter LaShara Nuss remembers her father’s attention to detail.

“He was the ultimate reenactor,” said Nuss. “His jackets are exact duplicates of Cody’s.”

Huffman knew many people from Roy Rogers to Gerald Ford. His brother says he’s been receiving numerous calls from friends with nothing but good to say. He jokes his brother is doing what he does best.

"He’s probably up there telling Buffalo Bill everything he doesn’t know about himself,” Clayton Huffman said.

“He would always be true to the character,” said Nuss.

There’s a celebration of life for Huffman on Saturday at the Elk’s Lodge in Evergreen that starts about 1 p.m. The public is invited and is encouraged to dress up.
