While honorably serving in the United States Navy, as a machinist, he met the love of his life Brenda. He loved the outdoors and was a World Class Fisherman. You could always find him on the water with his boat. If he wasn't riding the waves, he was riding the streets on his motorcycle. Always looking for a place to camp and to show off his shooting skills. But all to be said he'd still love just to sit still on the beach.
James was known to be a person of peace. He was always someone to go to for advice. James loved cooking for his family. He was a great provider, protector, and such a strong father and friend. We are honored to call him husband, Dad, Grandpa, and friend. To the world he was just one man, but to his family he was the world.
