TWIN FALLS – James Paul Mace, Jr., 55, resident of Twin Falls, peacefully passed on into his Heavenly Father’s faithful arms, April 15, 2019.

James was born to (then) James and Evelyn Mace, Sr. in Barstow, California where he was raised and completed school at Barstow High. Despite having been born with the physical limitations of C.P., his determination to overcome never allowed it to hinder him from playing soccer and ice hockey as a child. Later in life his strong will to overcome enabled him to land a career with one of his passions – working on and around cars as a paint and auto body technician. His other passion in life was for God where he sought to know His Truth and enjoyed any opportunity he was given to work for Him to encourage and help others.

He is survived by his wife, Angela, as well as his children Klarysa Rivers, Kristina Mace, James Paul (Anessa) Mace III, and Kanysha Mace; 7 grandchildren; parents, James (Edith) Mace, Sr.; siblings Richard Mace, Sherry Moon, Walter Mace and Kristy Mace. He was preceded in death by his paternal and maternal grandparents.

A celebration of life will be held at 1:00 p.m., Saturday, May 18, 2019 at White Mortuary “Chapel by the Park.”

In lieu of flowers it is requested to bring Hot Wheel car toys that will be donated to military families.

My dad was such a positive man he touched someone's soul everywhere he went. I remember when my daddy baptized me as a child he sat me down and explained everything to me until I understood then told me I could have him or the other pastor do it and of course I chose my dad it was a great day I will cherish forever .. Thank you dad
The time u took me to the hockey game in boise with Angela that was exciting fun ... Working with u and spending time sanding down cars to paint later.. Calling just to talk about car projects being done. The children's bible u gave to me in 1991 with the black green purple and orange case. I love you Daddy so much love ur baby Tina

His dad and mine always hung out building race cars, I had a crush on him, we grew up and went to school together, was at his wedding. Would hang out with him now and then until he moved away.... luckily for FB we kept in touch.... He was great guy and fun to be around back in the day. This was us hanging out at church, He will be missed.
Maybe he will see my dad and reminisce about those racing days

James and I met in 7th grade, we became friends and even played soccer for many years. James was determined to be the best in soccer and he and Jim Sr. taught me t do some auto body in Lenwood, Ca., James taught me to ride a dirt bike in their backyard. James will be dearly missed he touched everyone that he came in contacted with. Prayers for the family, see you later my friend.

I new James many years ago when he worked at my body shop.
And when he did the service to mary my sister to her husband.
We have not stayed in contact over the years but I stocked him on Facebook. Lol.
He was a good man, I wish Angela many years of happiness.
