The following was given to our
committee by June's husband, James Eitel of Gilmer, Texas.
June Huff-Eitel went to Marion Institute for one year after high school. She
returned home to Arlington, Virginia and worked for the Defense Department for a few
years. (DCPG) After that June worked at the Treasury Department for two years before
we were married in 1971. June did not work after that.
We had tours at Fort Bliss, Texas, Mildenhall, England and Stuttgart, Germany before June
was diagnosed with lymphoma in 1981. We returned to the DC area for her treatment and she
survived for six years. She died in 1987 at Walter Reed Hospital and is buried in
Maryland with her parents.
I stayed in the DC area after retiring in 1986 until our son (James, Jr.) was out of
college. I moved back to my home in Texas in 1995.
Our son lives in Riverview, Florida and works for a defense contractor.
June's sister, Nancy, lives in Arlington, Virginia.
