James "Jim" Levi Everett Juett


James Levi Everett Juett (Jim), of Whispering Pines passed away on March 19, 2024 at the age of 90. 

Jim was a dedicated serviceman and family man who spent his life in service of his family, his community, and his country. Jim served in the United States Air Force from 1954-1974 including a tour in Vietnam from November of 1967-November 1968. After retiring from the service, Jim spent most of his life serving in different volunteer capacities including church service, meals on wheels, and as an installer for First Health. Jim spent most of the years of his life with his best friend and partner, Norma. The two met in elementary school, grew up in the same circles and married in December of 1954. They remained together until Norma passed three years ago. Jim was a loving and supportive grandfather. When he had the opportunity, he could be seen with his grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great-grandchildren with a smile on his face, especially when holding a baby.

  1. I met Jim when he was a volunteer in the mailroom at FirstHealth. Always such a gentleman and I loved the stories he would tell. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
