James Ray Huggins went to be with our Heavenly Father on May 25th, 2018 after a brave battle with a long illness. He was born December 19th, 1943. He was preceded in death by his parents, Marvin Clingman and Lona Mae Mace Huggins and his brother, Vernon Clingman Huggins (Jean).

 

He retired from GE after 36 years of service. He was an avid outdoorsman. He loved horses, hunting and fishing. His devotion to his family and his firm belief in God supported him in his struggle and ultimately gave him peace. He was known for his sense of humor and his love of playing jokes.

 

He is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Ethelene Huggins, his brother, Mace F. Huggins (Martha), three children, Lisa Jackson (Bryan), Tracey Cornett (Dennis), Michael Huggins (Heather), 9 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.

 

A father is neither an anchor to hold us back nor a sail to take us there, but a guiding light whose love shows us the way. Thank you for always being our guiding light. We love you.

 

A private celebration of life will be held at a later date.

 

Thos. Shepherd & Son Funeral Directors and Cremation Memorial Center is in charge of arrangements.
