Our beloved James entered the gates of Heaven at the age of 77. He was known as a man who loved to hunt in his younger years, an avid fisherman, and an amazing vegetable gardener of onions, tomatoes, squash and cabbage. A devoted husband, father, grandfather, a beloved son, brother, brother-in-law and uncle to many. He will be best remembered by his big smile, his silly antics, pranks, and boisterous laughter. When he gave you a nickname, you knew he loved you deeply. He spent most of his career as a professional truck driver which began at the age of 22 years with various trucking companies; retiring in 2004 from ABF.
