In recent years, he was a member of Floyd Pond Holiness Church in Richlands. James was a graduate of Richlands High School and NASCAR Technical Institute. He was self-employed in the fishing and small engine business, and he loved the outdoors where he enjoyed fishing and hunting. Throughout the years, James could be found working on cars with his granddad, fishing with his dad and brother, playing in the yard with the kids, at a yard sale with his family or giving someone a helping hand. He had a heart of gold and never missed an opportunity to bless someone. His laugh and smile were contagious and are etched in the memories of all of his family and friends. James was a true blessing to everyone and will be missed so much by all who knew him.
