Family comments: James was a very loving, good hearted man, who loved to make any situation, no matter how bad, into a laughable, bearable one. He saw the good in everyone and everything. James loved all animals and going fishing with his buddies. His favorite pastime was going out to the shooting range and shooting his guns. He will be missed greatly by all.
