I know this is a tremendous loss for you all; but, he would be the first to tell you he is in the best place, with peace and love from the Good Lord. I am very fortunate to have experienced a friendship with James Fountain. My thoughts and prayers are with you Judy and family- God Bless you. Jim McMillan

We have lost a wonderful man, a man who loved his family, his brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews. He was a true gentleman, never had a harsh word, always spoke with respect for his fellow man & respectful of all women. I guess you could say a true Southern Gentleman. He loved our Aunt Judy and shared many vacations with his sister-in-laws and brother-in-laws. Their vacations were full of good times, a lot of laughter and wonderful memories. We will remember him on his tractor or driving little “Red”, tilling up a garden, tinkering in his work shop, he loved the outdoors, especially hunting. He took great pride in his properties and welcomed family to join him during hunting season. He respected the land and the animals. You shoot it, you clean it. If you didn’t know how he was there to teach you. He took his nephew Cody out one morning and they came upon an armadillo but Cody didn’t see it. Uncle Jim told Cody to go on the other side of the tree and flush it out, Cody did what he asked but still not knowing what was there. When Cody got to the other side of the tree, the armadillo came running out of this hole in the tree. Cody was screaming like a girl, Uncle Jim laughing watching the armadillo chased Cody all over the place and Cody continued screaming. Those are the wonderful memories we will all miss and cherish. We will miss you terribly but we will also be at peace knowing you are free of pain, and you are with many family members and friends. Until we meet again our sweet brother in law and Uncle. God Bless you from Richard Wells, Jr., Family ~ Donna Wells Lindsay & husband Dave, Michelle Wells Ireland & husband Ken, Melanie Wells Hausfeld & husband Jay, nieces Ashley, Paige and Taylor, nephews Cody, Tyler, and Kyle. ♥️
