I'm so very sorry to hear about this, there is so much I would like to thank that man for and now there's not enough time in the world. He helped teach me to drive, race cars, build hot rod Chevy's and cuss. Much more than that but I won't put it to where others can see it, I will always have a deep respect for him and his family. Please don't hesitate to ask if you need any at all. Tyger D.

So sorry to hear of James' passing. Sincere condolences to Benita and family. James was one of my first buddies that I met back in 1968, when my parents moved to Pea Ridge. We were both 18 years old back then, and he & his '57 Chevy would beat me every time we raced each other. James was truly one of a kind and was almost larger than life with every day being a new adventure. Although I haven't seen James in over many, many years , I wish I could have thanked him for all the great memories we had together, from days past, in our late teens and early twenties. Fly high on Angel's wings, my old friend, you are truly missed.
