James "Jim" Hubman James "Jim" Hubman was born June 6, 1931, and passed on peacefully on February 5, 2013. Jim dedicated his life to service, honor, and enriching the lives of all that knew him. He served in the United States Marine Corp doing two tours in Korea. From there, he spent 21 years with the L.A. County Fire Department saving people's lives and "washing a few cats out of trees". After moving to Lake County, he continued his public service by spending 15 years in law enforcement. Jim was known for his kind smile, sparkling blue eyes, impeccable handlebar moustache, hilarious "one liners", and his unwavering love for all he knew. His spirit was one that loved unconditionally and saw the light in every dark place. Jim was preceded in death by his son, Randy Hubman, and daughter, Janine Carr. He is survived by his wife, Sharon Hubman; daughter and son-in-law, Christine and Rodney Barnes; son and daughter-in-law, John and Linda Bigley; son, Rick Hubman; furry-four-legged daughter, Jasmine; grandchildren, Shannon, Brad, Rick, Jessica, Jerni, Jesse, and James; and six great-grandchildren. Jim was a gentleman in the truest sense of the word; he was honest, loyal, compassionate and strong. He loved, respected and adored everyone in his life. He thrived on making those around him happy. At his request, no services will be held but donations are invited to be made to the Lakeport Fire Department and Four Legged Friends c/o Tina Howard/Wasson Memorial Veterinary. Although his time on this earth is over, his smile will forever be seen and his spirit will live on with each person whose life he touched.
