Obituary of James Huling

 James Robert Huling or "Bob" as he was called, was born in a log cabin in Glen Mary, TN, on January 1, 1930, to Ruby Christine and Albert Dewey Huling.

  He lived in the country as a young boy with his parents, his sister Norma and other family members. He talked of his Grandma Pemberton who was one of Jehovah's Witnesses and held Bible meetings and Watchtower studies in her home. Bob was baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses.

  As he grew older the family moved to a home in Baltimore City, where He and his sister Norma were amazed at light switches! Turning them on and off.
 Bob was a jack of all trades, he worked as an usher in the movie theater, even threatening to kick out his future wife for making too much noise. Even though it was only to get her attention. Although that did not work later at a carnival, he finally got his chance to win her over, he married Rose Antonia Coe on January 15, 1954.

 Bob was also a Arthur Murray dance instructor, welder, electrician and battery recycler among other trades he knew. Like his father and even his own son, tree work
was his passion. He ran Maryland Tree Service with his wife and then son Jim, known throughout Baltimore and Catonsville for over 70 years.
If you had a question about a tree, he could answer it. Green before being green was even popular. He started The Maryland Arborist Association with 11 other men as he said "To fix places up and to make people understand how tree surgery should be done."

 Not many people get to have what Bob had, knowledge of the Bible, and a beautiful loving wife Rosie, as he would call her. A son Jimmy, whom he got to work with every day doing the tree work they both loved so much. Three daughters, Donna, Diana, and Dinah. Eight granddaughters Brooke, Julie, Keriann, Ally, Charis, Chloe Rose, Tabitha and Leah. Five Grandsons, Brian, Daniel, Ross, James and Ashton. A new great granddaughter Naomi and new great grandson Christian.

 My dad knew after he died Jehovah God would wake him up in the paradise earth. I would say to him "what are you going to do in paradise, help people take care of the trees, train them with all of your knowledge?" He surprisingly said "Whatever they need me to do." , "Oh, and I want to become a better reader."

 My father will be missed by all for his love, kindness, and quiet sense of justice. He never boasted or bragged, but stepped up to support us whenever one of us needed it.
We look forward to Jehovah's earthly paradise where the Bible tells us we will be together eternally.

 James Robert Huling ''Bob" was preceded in death by his wife Rose Antonia Huling. He leaves behind three daughters Donna Miller, her husband Stuart and their three children. Diana Keene, her husband Shaun and her two children. Dinah and her five children. Jimmy, his wife Mindy and their two children. And two great grandchildren.

The family would like to thank you for your kind words, texts, emails and support at this difficult time.
