James had a strong faith in God and believed in service. He was a very generous and giving man. He attended Shiloh Baptist church serving as a Deacon. He was in the oilfield business in Monahans for more than 30 years. It was not always easy but he really enjoyed working. He also enjoyed the many family gatherings and reunions where he was typically a lead organizer. He had many friends that he met every day to drink coffee with at the Wickett truck stop.
