James (AKA) know as “RAT” by us that served in the GAANG at Dobbins AFB.
There were a few of us that went through
Tech school at Sheppard AFB (Aircraft maint school) in 1971-72 then we serve together in the air national guard for about the next five years. James had many friends in the unit and some that are going to be shocked that he has passed away I hope that he went peacefully and I also know that his wife passed away shortly after he did. To those of you who are relatives or close friends who are reading this obituary I want to knowThe “RAT” was a good friend , One who I shared many good times with and I only wish I had known that I could’ve spoken to him before his passing.
REST IN PEACE my Friend!!

It fills me with joy knowing that Carol and James are together for eternity. I admire the depth of their faith. They shunned Godless vaccines, and put their trust in God’s plan for them.

I will never forget James. He was such a cheerful, kind man, and he always made me laugh! We had so much fun comparing notes on the Dancing with the Stars contestants. We usually agreed on who should win, but not always! He and Carol Sue will be greatly missed in our community.

I’m so saddened by the passing of James and Carol Sue I’ve had the honor of knowing them for over 20 years meeting at Pigeon Forge rod runs. Carol Sue both loved to read and often discussed the books we were reading and James and I talked about Jesus for many hours over the years. They will be very missed two of the best people I’ve ever known. May God bless and give you peace.

Brooke, Ethan, Ashleigh and Jamison we are hurting so very much along with you for the loss of James and Carol Sue. They were such wonderful friends that we met in Pigeon Forge twice a year for over 20 years to see the rod run. We have so many wonderful memories of sitting and talking to them at the Valley Forge Motel. It was something we will remember for always. It will not be the same without them and going to miss them so much. All of you are in our thoughts and prayers. May God give you the strength that you need. We will always love your sweet sweet family.
