James W. Huth, 64, of Eatonton, passed away suddenly Monday, May 13, 2019, at Emory St. Joseph’s Hospital in Atlanta.
A private family burial will be held at a later date in Ohio at the Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery, Rittman, Ohio.
Jim was born on June 15, 1954, in Lakewood, Ohio, but raised in Berea, Ohio. He was the son of the late William Roderick Huth and Edna Postich Huth. He graduated from Berea High School in 1972 and later received an associate’s degree from Cleveland State University in 1984. He proudly served his country in the United States Navy from 1972 to 1975. James married the former Beth Brown on March 7, 1981, in Westfield Center, Ohio. In 1985 he started Camney Service & Supply, a successful business that he owned and operated for 34 years. He was a member of Westfield Country Club, Cuscowilla Country Club and Citrus Hills Country Club. He was also an Elk and Eagle. He enjoyed golfing, boating, fishing, grilling ribs, deep frying every food group, drinking potato juice from a red cup and spending time with and harassing his friends and family. Jim was known by many names: Zippy, Bubba, Heem, Jimbo and Big Jim, to name a few. His favorite names, though, were Dad to his children and Pops to his Grandkids. Jim will long be remembered for his larger than life personality, his irreverent sense of humor and his ability to “Huthanize” his friends and family. His only life goal not met was being on Medicare. We will forever love and miss you Poodle Head. RIP. He was preceded in death by his parents; his in-laws, Robert and Ann Brown; nine dogs; and a cat.
