  1. James was always a funny guy. I remember in High School; we would ride around at lunch sometimes, or go to Ball’s Drive-in or the DQ.
    He was a real jokester.

    • Hi Jeffery,

      We are in weird times. I’ve been checking obits lately because of corona. I check my local area and places Ive lived. I’m in Mississippi now. Always glad to see people still here and doing well. It is also nice to see in obits what people accomplished in their lives. A lot of people have done good things. I have to smile upon my friends.

  2. Just found out about James passing ,what a great guy , just like brother Jeff we all went to school together. To all of the family of James my sympathy goes with each of you. James i was blessed and privileged to have known a good friend like you, spread your wings and fly dear brother.
