Hovis, James Brunton: Walking On

Yakima, Washington March 2011

A private graveside service was held for JAMES BRUNTON HOVIS, 82. A public celebration of Jim’s life was held January 22, 2011 at the Keith and Keith Funeral Home. James was born November 6, 1928, in Yakima. He passed away January 4, 2011, at the Yakima Regional Hospital.

Jim grew up in the Yakima Valley and graduated from Zillah High School, and after his return from military service in the Pacific during World War II, obtained his B.S. and Juris Doctorate from the University of Washington. Jim practiced law for over 37 years, representing a wide variety of public and private clients. During this time, Jim served as the lead attorney for the Yakama Nation, an abiding affiliation that resulted in many significant decisions affirming tribal treaty rights. He also appeared before many different courts, presenting oral argument several times before the U.S. Supreme Court. In 1987, Jim was appointed to serve as a Magistrate Judge for the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Washington. Jim enjoyed the outdoors, spending many wonderful hours at the Royal Duck Club and fishing in Nootka Sound.
