Jim Huie passed away December 7, 2012, at the age of 68. He was born September 26, 1944, in Wheeler, Texas. He grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area before entering the Army. He served during the Vietnam War era and was stationed in many places including Germany for eight years. He left the service with the rank of Staff Sergeant. He was proud of his service to our country. After leaving the Army he worked as a truck driver. He drove for over 30 years delivering fuel, cement, wine, and beer. He really enjoyed being a truck driver because he "enjoyed his own company." Jim loved life and in his leisure time he enjoyed a good bottle of wine with friends and family. In his spare time he also enjoyed working on cars as well as playing with his remote-control helicopters.
Jim is survived by his wife, Kathleen; his sons, Scott Ford, Christopher Huie, and James Huie Jr.; grandchildren and many sisters and brothers.
Services will be held Friday, December 14, 2012, at 2:00 p.m. at Perl Funeral Home, 2100 Siskiyou Blvd., Medford, OR 97504.
