I've known James my entire life. He was like a father to my mother. He always had such a gentle easy-going way about him. I have many fond memories of spending time with him and Lee at their home when I was a child. We often spent time with them at the lake too, as my Mamaw's cabin was right next door to theirs. James touched countless lives and will definitely be missed.

My dad taught me how to sheetrock houses, I started when I was young probably in 7th grade he taught me to drive the nails 4 to a row and 1 on bottom the first thing he told me was don't drive a nail where you seen the squiggly pencil lines for their would be a copper pipe behind it. What did I do?you guessed it I drove a nail right in the water pipe and water started dripping so he called the builder and they sent the plumber out to fix it , but my dad didn't blow up at me he just explained it to me again and I never hit another pipe as long as I hung drywall

My dad loved to fish I remember back in the early 80's we went to the lake in February we had unusual warm weather up to about 80 degrees both days we set out a lot of jug lines and we caught about 2 or 3 hundred pounds of fish mostly blue cats needless to say we had a big fish fry

James would always tell every person he introduced me to that he was at the hospital the day I was born. So, I've literally known him my entire life. He always treated me like family. There aren't many men like James in this world. He was definitely one in a million!

Rest in peace, Jamesy Boy.

As I was growing up in Antlers, OK my Uncle James and Aunt Lee would often drive down from OKC bringing their two sons, Jimmy and Terry. We were always so happy to see them. Later, we enjoyed many Rogers family reunions at their lake cabin. Uncle James had the sweetest disposition and a wonderful sense of humor. Even through Alzheimer's Disease he could come up with funny, creative retorts and stories. He was much loved and will be remembered for his gentle spirit, his sense of humor, all the great stories he told and all the good times enjoyed in his presence.

Back in the early seventys, 1970 to be exact, James and Wayne purchased some land at Taylors Island Veiw at lake Texhoma, in which we built a cabin . After building it we shared it. It was a trip we made nearly every weekend. We enjoyed the fishing, boating, & swimming along with good cooked meals, there were other friends of ours who had cabins there it was such a great time on weekends. Later on James & Lee built their cabin next door to ours. There are memories I will never forget. James you are going to be sorely missed. You were such a great friend, may you RIP.

James always had a smile for me. He was quite, but helpful. I remember growing up when we all went to the lake.
James and Lee both were like parents to me. He walked me down the isle when I got married.
I loved them both and think of them often.
I’m so sorry for your loss.
Much love

Although I did not meet my grandpa James until later in life, I feel so blessed that I was able to last year for the first time. He was one of the most joyful people I have ever met, always smiling and cracking a joke. I sure will miss him but know I will see him again one day along with my grandmother Lee.
