Our dearest James Chris Huber, 69, of South Jordan, Utah, returned to his Father in Heaven on October 26, 2023. Chris was born in La Grande, Oregon on Christmas Day 1953 to James Russell Huber and Margaret Meeks Huber. His parents received the wonderful gift of his arrival which prompted them to call him by his middle name Chris.\n\nAs a youth he enjoyed basketball, football, and fishing. He was enrolled in several 4-H Clubs. His favorite was the bug club, where he won grand champion at both the county and state fairs. He graduated from La Grande High School in 1972.\n\nIn 1973-1975, he served a mission in Mexico City, Mexico for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He attended and graduated from Brigham Young University with a B.S. in Geography/Travel and Tourism in 1978. He had a love and passion for exploring the world and over the course of his 39 years as a travel agent and guide he visited over 80 countries. He spent the majority of those years with Morris Murdock Travel.\n\nChris married Donna Lee Judson in the Salt Lake LDS Temple on October 20, 1994. They had four devoted children, McKay (27), Madalyn (24), McKenna (23), and Mitchell (20). He and Donna spent countless hours supporting their children in their sporting and various activities and loved every minute of it. He loved serving in the church and held various callings and was often the first to lend a hand for those in need. Those that know Chris know of his quiet demeanor and unwavering example of faith. He took great joy in providing for his family and worked tirelessly to ensure they were cared for. He had a soft heart and a deep love for family; the mere mention of them would bring him to tears. He had a great sense of humor and often gave a witty remark especially when you would least expect it. In 2016, Donna unexpectedly passed away and left him and the kids completely heartbroken. It was a very challenging time for his family.\n\nIn 2019, he found happiness and love again and married Kathy Hendricks. They moved to South Jordan to start their life together with plans to travel and enjoy their retirement years with their families. Just two and half years later, Chris suffered a spinal cord injury that left him a quadriplegic. He endured diligently and worked very hard in his therapy efforts for even the smallest of improvement. He was so thankful for his family who took great care of him and he often expressed his appreciation for them. He was grateful for all of the doctors, therapists, and caregivers who supported him in his recovery efforts. The highlight of this last year were the births and the time he spent with his two granddaughters, Madalyn’s daughter, Faye (11 months old) and McKay and Kendell’s daughter, Grace (3 months old).\n\nChris was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He will be missed deeply by his family and friends. Chris is survived by his children McKay (Kendell), Madalyn, McKenna, and Mitchell and two grandchildren; his wife Kathy and her three children, Kris (Ginna) Hendricks, Kari (Aaron) Bryan, Kelly (Lechelle) Hendricks and ten grandchildren; brothers David (Debra) Huber, Lowell (Joan) Huber and many other loved ones. \n\nFuneral services will be held on Saturday, November 4, 2023 at 11:00 am at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints located at 10115 S.
