James was my friend for almost fifty years. We shared some great times spent fishing, hunting, piddling with his projects and just telling stories. He was an extraordinary man that lived and enjoyed a simple life. Yes, he was "Old School" and had his values in order. He always respected others, honored his promises, kept family as first priority, and was always there if you needed him. His love of the outdoors and nature was never satisfied. His least favorite thing was having to stay indoors. He was a skilled craftsman and I always envied his creative abilities. I can only hope to spend more time with him in the heavens one day.
