James was a fun-loving and good man. He liked talking about Sports, Politics and just about anything. James had strong opinions and beliefs and you could find yourself in a feisty, but friendly, debate before you knew it. He loved his family & friends and would usually greet you with a big smile. May God Bless James and Family during these difficult times.
