Clifford Frank Huit was born in a rural area of Canyon County, Idaho, to Jacob Kenneth and Carrie Lenor Huit. He was a devout Christian and spent most of his life as a minister of the Gospel. He had a great love of people and a heart for the ministry.
Clifford married Greta Yvonne Allen on July 28, 1935. Their son, Kenneth was born December 28, 1938. Together they served many years in the ministry.
In 1969 they came out of retirement because of the love God gave them for troubled youth, opening their home to help all those that needed it. They held an outreach at what is now the Gene Harris band shell in Julie Davis Park, Boise, Idaho. This was the beginning of what quickly became known as "StoneHouse", named after scripture and the cobblestone building provided by Morrison Knudsen, at Broadway and E. Park Blvd. in Boise. They were known as "Mom" and "Pop" to thousands.
With the help of Sheriff Paul Bright and Vern Bisterfeldt, the Huits went to court with many addicts and thieves who turned themselves in for the crimes they had committed before being changed by God's power.
Their ministry with StoneHouse lasted nearly 25 years until Pop's health failed. He is remembered by not only the people whose lives he touched with his message of forgiveness, but by other local Pastors, churches, and community members who supported his efforts to extend Christ's love to the lost.
This was compiled from newspaper clippings, an Ancestry family tree, and from my personal knowledge of Pop Huit:
