Professionally James worked as a Compressor Tester for Quincy Compressor. He worked, and he worked hard, so that his wife would not have to. He was a committed family man and as his family grew so did his love for those that called him, Husband, Dad, and Papa! He loved traveling and he especially enjoyed the mountains. When it came to driving he was the best. He was known as the family chauffer and one thing James never needed was to ask for directions or read a map. He knew where he was going. James enjoyed food and he loved to find a good buffet restaurant. And he enjoyed tormenting his grandchildren. James was a fan of watching western movies, the weather channel and a good cup of coffee.
James was a Christian by faith and a member of the Church of Christ.
