James Brewster Judd, age 94, passed away on June 23, 2014 in Inchelium. He was born the son of John Stanley and Winnie (Premo) Judd on May 28, 1920 in CheÂhalis. At the age of 12, James moved with his family from Chehalis to IncheÂlium, where the family farmed and raised cattle.
He attended school in Inchelium, and graduated from IncheÂlium High School. Following high school, James enlisted in the United States Army and proudly served his country in the PaÂcific Theatre of WWII. While serving in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, James was stationed in occupied Korea and the Philippines. After his honorable discharge in 1946, James reÂturned to Inchelium and continued to work on the family farm.
On October 2, 1949, James married Audrey Markham and the couple raised their four daughters in Inchelium. In 1957, he went to work for the Inchelium School District until his reÂtirement after 27 years of employment.
In Jamesâ€™ spare time, he enjoyed working on his farm, tendÂing to his vegetable garden, hunting, camping, but most imÂportantly, spending time with his family. There wasnâ€™t anyÂthing James wouldnâ€™t do for his family or friends and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
