James Thomas Huebner
Jim grew up with his parents, Paul Edwin Huebner and Anne Follis Huebner in Palos Verdes Estates, CA and graduated from Palos Verdes High School. Passionate about the culture, surf, and language of Mexico, Jim graduated from
UCSB with a BA in Latin American & Iberian Studies. Jim was fluent in Spanish and read extensively in that language.
Jim lived on the Hollister Ranch for 17 years & also loved surfing in mainland Mexico. All who ever encountered Jim, enjoyed his incredible sense of humor, a talent he learned from his father.
Jim will never be forgotten by his family and a circle of friends that loved him dearly, that embraced him during his darkest times, and a daughter who showed deep wisdom, compassion and love for her father in his greatest time of need.
He countered his demons with an unparalleled charm and sense of humor that brought great joy to all who knew him. He found great solace in the ocean, backpacking in the Eastern Sierras and picking just the right rocks to build beautiful stone walls that will stand in remembrance of a man who was loved by many and will be missed by all.
Jim is survived by his daughter Sofia Huebner & her mother Amy Cale-Huebner. His brother Bruce Huebner, sister Carol Wetzel and mother Nancy Huebner.
