My family was saddened at the news of James' repose. "Tennessee" was a friend and fellow electrical lineman to several of my sons here in Texas. His cheerfulness, manners and willingness to help anyone out made a deep impression on all of us. He will be greatly missed. Memory Eternal!!

I don't think I ever met him. His dad is my nephew Steven. We were really close when Steven was growing up. Some how we lost touch with each other. James is my great nephew. It's sad how family's lose touch. I know Steven is a wonderful Dad. I love you a lot Steven. ❤ Aunt Betty

I remember the day James was born. The moment I heard my nephew cry outside the labor room, I cried! It was the most beautiful moment of my life hearing my new nephew. He was a handsome young man. He was funny and very talented in so many things. He enjoyed playing guitar with his uncle Gary. He was fun to be around. I will cherish the moments I had with him forever. I am proud to have known this wonderful person. Thank you for the memories James! ❤️

I remember when he was a little boy and would stay over at his grandma Martha house he was always laughing and being goofy how I wish I could turn back the clock. Love you my sweet great nephew. You will be missed every second, minute of the day. Sleep with the angels now. I guess God needed you more.
