REST IN PEACE

JANUARY 19, 2019

Glendale AZ - James 'Jim' Hushek ("Fr. Jim"), 78, passed away peacefully after a two-year illness on January 15th, 2019. He was the loving husband of Carol Hushek. Jim was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the son of Joseph and Marie (Wesley) Hushek. He graduated from Marquette High School and entered the Seminary to become a Discalced Carmelite Priest where he served in various monasteries in the Midwest and East, serving as Prior at Holy Hill in Wisconsin for six years. In 1988 Jim left the active ministry and in 1989 he married Carol (Lemense). They moved to Phoenix, AZ where he worked at Phoenix Heat Treating until his death. Jim also officiated over 2,000 marriages from 1994 until his last one on December 12th, 2018. He was a member of the Federation of Christian Ministries, the SSWS community chorus, and an active member of Overeaters Anonymous 12 Step Program for 40 years. He enjoyed golf, playing bridge, spending time with his grandkids, traveling whenever possible, and most of all making sure his wife was happy. He will be remembered for his generosity, sense of humor, gentleness, storytelling, and above all, the way he showed kindness to everyone he knew and the unconditional love he had for all those in his life. He is survived by his wife Carol, sister Joan Ambre and sister-in-law Pat Hushek. Also, his (step) children Cheri and Steve Sadler, his grandchildren Sarah, Hope, Rachel, and Jack and his great-grandson Jamesyn. He is also survived by many amazing nieces, nephews, and friends. He was predeceased by his parents and his brothers Joseph Jr, Paul (Florence), Charles, and Allan (Mickie).
