James was a great guy. Got to work with him while he was a custodian for Muldrow Schools. May he rest in peace. Praying for the family & friends.

Uncle Jimmy was the funniest person I knew. No matter what, where or when - he would have everyone laughing until they cried. Thank you for a million laughs, Uncle Jimmy.

As a young child, I remember him coming home on leave from serving in Vietnam. I was so excited to see him! He was asleep in the back bedroom at my Grandma’s house. I ran into the bedroom to wake him up, but his feet stunk so bad I gagged and had to run back out. I laugh about it to this day. Thank you for your service, Uncle Jimmy.

Once he started texting we were able to stay in touch. Our conversations usually revolved around sports. He loved Sooner football. I loved the Razorbacks. Thank you for those memories, Uncle Jimmy.

Rest In Peace, Uncle Jimmy. You will be missed.
