Jim Huber

Jimmie K. Huber beloved son, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend passed away peacefully in his sleep on March 24, 2017 at his home with those he holds dearest. Jim was born July 27, 1951 in Roosevelt, Utah, the 5th of 9 children born to Frank Darrell Huber and Mary Lou Burgess Huber. Jim's great loves in life were ranching and his family. He loved his grandchildren and supported them 100%% in every venture they tackled. Jim took great pride in his farm and his cattle. He was a hard worker. He loved his time spent working with his lifelong friends, Larry & Greg McKee at T&L Livestock. Jim had a deep love for team roping and was a champion heeler and a founding member of the Gusher Roping Club. He passed his love of roping on to his grandsons. Jim fought an amazing fight and lived life on his own terms - never giving in to the odds. Jim was preceded in death by his father, Frank Darrell Huber, his grandparents, Frank and Ardith Huber and Hyrum and Fern Burgess, sisters Sharon, Glenda and Shelle.
