James was a proud Navy Vietnam Veteran and participated in monthly meetings. He was a kind and gentle soul and had a heart of gold. He was always willing to help others and was a soft place to fall when someone fell on hard times.

He loved Farmall tractors, collecting guns, target practice, making handmade knives, shooting fireworks, barbecuing, making homemade ice cream, watching old westerns and playing drums. He loved his family and friends, and especially hanging out with his grandkids and great-grandkids.
