James Strickland was one of the finest gentlemen I ever had the opportunity to meet, work with and call a friend. We worked together back in 1973 in Gas Control for Lo Vaca Gathering Company in Corpus Christi, sharing the same shift many days and nights, and for many years after that we worked for different concerns, but he was always one of my favorite people in the industry and always had my utmost respect.
Mine and Tamara's heart felt condolences go out to Barbara, JR and Lana, as well as to the rest of the family.

I started knowing James when I went to work at Coastal States. He was always a very upbeat, friendly, intelligent gentleman. We worked for many years together in the natural gas pipeline industry. His word was his bond.
Will always remember James as a friend.
