James Hurd
1952 - 2016

" Buffalo ”

Main Menu

Our friend Buffalo passed away at home in early August 2016 with his beloved dogs by his side. He packed a lot of living into 64 years. He loved ski trips, bowling, shooting pool, playing flag football and cheering on the Huskies and Seahawks.

Buffalo recently retired after a nearly 40 year career on the Seattle waterfront as a respected longshore clerk supervisor and member of ILWU Local 52. He stood up for what he believed in. Loudly and Proudly.

His dogs were his passion. He loved and cared for them faithfully. He found comfort in his Christian faith and spending time with close friends. He was a generous soul; even buying houses so friends could have a roof over their heads.

James "Buffalo" Hurd will be deeply missed.

In lieu of flowers a donation to PAWS is encouraged.
