James was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He had many great accomplishments in his life, but for Jim, his family was the greatest.

He loved taking his grandchildren to the movies and out to eat. He deeply loved and enjoyed spending time with his friends, making wine, and always being the life of the party. If there was a joke to be told, he would tell it. James will truly be cherished and missed.
