James served two tours for the National Guard and Army Reserve. He had faith in Jehovah God and all the promises God has made to us. He would spend many hours studying- to the point he couldn't see his bible anymore. He lived life to the fullest and always had a story to tell, which he enjoyed sharing with anyone who would listen.
He has left behind a large family, some blood, some not, either way he loved them all the same.
