Being raised in a Christian home, James accepted Christ as his personal Savior at an early age and began to learn the ways of God and build a personal relationship with Christ. James was a member of Faith Cornerstone Ministries in Marianna, FL. He was a devoted husband to his beloved wife; strong yet loving father to his beloved children; and a sweet and caring grandfather to his precious grand & great-grandchildren. A man that will be deeply missed.
James was united in Holy Matrimony to Eldiest Philyor on February 4, 1961 and to this union eight beautiful children were born and reared in a God-fearing home. He was employed with Louisiana Pacific as a Lumber Mill Operator for many years before retiring.
