James Baugh Basketball Jr AKA Poopie. A son, a brother, a nephew, a grandson, boyfriend, and friend. There are SO many words that can be used to describe him, but here are a few that people who love him so thought fit…talented, goofy, loving, handsome, fast, scooter fanatic, basketball player, teammate, hardheaded, tough skinned, stinky, dirty, fearless, mischievous, adventurous, outgoing, intelligent, always up for a challenge, brave, tough, big hearted, true, sweet, athletic, different, and AMAZING.

This boy did not sit sill from the minute he knew he could get around himself at 6 months. Extremely talented in EVERYTHING he put his mind to, he had a basketball in his hand from the time he started walking. Any time he could get outside or to any type of hoop that is what he was doing. That was a passion that he shared with his father and continued being extremely passionate about for a long time. He played from about 4 years old all the way through high school and had a sick three pointer!! In his teenage years, his passion became scootering which again he SOARED in. My baby could fly through the air and always did things that made me hold my breath every time!!

He loved and idolized his father, but he was most definitely a Mommas boy. He was my hiking buddy. He would hike with me more than any of the other kids and get up early to do it too! He never ended a phone call without telling me he loved me. His sister was his baby and his brothers his best friend. I know you are happy and with your Daddy.

I love you to the moon and back. Thank my beautiful boy for keeping me on my toes from day one.

Oh where do I start...?? That smile could light up a room!! I loved seeing James at the office. Watching him grow into a young man was a pleasure to be apart of. I loved being able to tease him like he was my family. I enjoyed stealing hugs from him when he was younger. I looked forward the the Halloween parties, because I knew I would see him. I always had a secret goal to make sure I got a smile out of him as his whole face would light up and make my heart melt. I love your family and truly have loved being a small part of it over the last 10+yrs. Xoxo

Lil James....You were definitely exciting to watch grow up. You were adventurous and always had a smile to share. I loved watching you play Basketball for sure. You always showed strength in what you put your mind to. I will miss you. Everyone will... because you made a mark on everyone's heart. One heart in the cloud is from Daddy to Mommy... so next time, add a second one right next to him to show Mommy your watching over her. Love you Poopie!

I was in 7th grade. It was the first day of school and when I walked into my English class it was the first time I ever saw James. I remember his amazing smile. I knew right away that I wanted him in my life. We ended up sitting at the same table and we couldn’t stop talking to where it got us in trouble lol. The teacher moved my seat on the second day of school across the room but we still found a way to talk to each other through our eyes. We would laugh and giggle all the time in class. That day and James’s smile will always live with me. 💙 LLJ 🙏

James Baugh was not only just one of my best friends but one of my brothers. We had our off times but he was such a great and pure human being. There never wasn’t a smile on his face. So many amazing road trips and adventures around so many different cities just to ride scooters. One of our personal favorite trips in particular would have to be the lake Havasu 2019 ISA scooter competition. This was my first professional competition and James was by my side through every second of it, supporting me and our fellow scooter homies having the best time of our lives. Even when it was just us two, there wasn’t a single time that wasn’t memorable. So many amazing memories and so many great people we got to meet. The amount of potential this kid had was incredible, I watched James go from barely being able to tail whip to being one of the most talented riders in Las Vegas within a couple of years. There’s no doubt in my mind that James would’ve eventually became a professional rider himself. And although it breaks my heart knowing that I’ll never be able to talk or spend another moment with him. He truly made a positive impact on me and so many other peoples lives. And for that I will always forever have Love for my dearest friend James Baugh and his family.

Where do i began... there’s so much i could say about you, you blessed my life like no other. You were the best friend i could always count on, the friend that would always be there for me no matter the situation. all the times we would have sleep overs in my room, all the times we ditched school. I’ll never have someone like you again. I still can’t believe your gone so quick. I love you so much james.

James, we all love you and miss you so much. I loved it when you and Gia came to the house and stayed each day because I knew you were both safe and happy. I will miss the beautiful smile you gave me when I said Hi every time I saw you. Thank you for loving my Gia and taking such good care of her always. You were her everything and brought her so much happiness. You truly were one of a kind and such a sweet young man. Our hearts will forever be broken but you will be with us there forever, and we will find comfort in the memories. Rest In Peace our beautiful angel ❤️
