Indonesian football writer Antony Sutton met Huda a few months ago while researching a book before his death described him as :
"He played for his local team, he was living the dream,". "He was just happy in his skin and happy in his town."
"He's a legend - a one-club man, His ambition was to become his club's goalkeeping coach after he retired."
"He never created a fuss about anything. He loved what he was doing but did it in such an understated way."
He was married and had two children.
Huda was given his first call-up for a 2015 AFC Asian Cup qualification in 1-1 draw against China on 15 October 2013. Huda was called-up seven times for Indonesia in his national career but he received no single caps.
Huda died after an incident in the match against Semen Padang at 2017 Liga 1. He collided with a teammate, Ramon Rodrigues, while trying to collect the ball from an opponent and was struck in the chest. Paramedics immediately gave him sideline emergency treatment. A paramedic said that after the incident, he was still conscious and complained of a chest pain, but his condition soon relapsed and he later died from his injuries in a local hospital.
According to a doctor in the local hospital, he suffered a collision on his chest and lower jaw, which caused hypoxia that ultimately led to his death. Moreover, due to severe injury, he might also have experienced trauma to his head, neck, and chest.
