James R. Etchison was born on May 12, 1950 in Loganville, Georgia to the late Sam Gober and Essie M. Etchison. Mr. Etchison is survived by his loving wife, Liz, stepdaughter, Terri Jones, stepson, Carlos Jones, brothers Lewis (Chris), William (Anita), sisters, Savannah (Mack), Bessie (Lawrence), and Annitte. Brothers Jay and Floyd (deceased), and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, a “special friend,” and co-worker Kate Rosemond.

James married Liz Maurie Edwards on August 28, 1982. To this union, he was blessed with a stepdaughter, Terri Marie Jones and a stepson Carlos Jones. He enlisted in the Navy in June 1970 and after serving two years, he began his career at General Motors, returning in 2008.

James was a faithful member of the George Moore/ Sarah Allen Usher Board since 1982 and also a member of the male chorus. Whenever there was an usher board picnic, he always wanted to be the “grill man.”

He was such a handyman who could repair almost anything, including rigging a horn in his “old red pickup truck.”

He joined the Get 2 Gether Bikers in 20019 and was always on the road participating in charity rides with his biker buddies. He was always willing to help others, expecting nothing in return.

He was blessed with such a close knit family who he loved very much. He was a loving husband, stepfather, and will be greatly missed by many.

He loved life and lived it well.
