James worked professionally as a truck driver for Bleigh Ready Mix and also at Pizza Hut. He was a Christian by faith. He was also very patriotic and a devoted member of the Hannibal Jaycees and Hannibal Elks Lodge. James loved to support and volunteer within his community. An avid outdoorsman, James loved to go fishing the Mississippi River, hiking, camping and geocaching. Being the Renaissance Man that he was, James made wine, homemade butter and was generally a jack of all trades. He was a great cook, specializing in pulled pork, fried green tomatoes and biscuits and gravy. Of Irish and Scottish heritage, James naturally loved all shades of green and was a jovial character. Spending time with family and friends was most important in James’ life and he will be forever missed by those he held dear.
