November 27, 1997 – August 27, 2020
In loving memory of a terrific son and friend to anyone he knew. James was a sweet, thoughtful, considerate, passionate, polite and generous soul. He touched so many hearts. He was recognized and known as a beautiful person, inside and out. He was quiet speaking, very funny, he could always make someone smile and laugh. He fill their hearts with warmth and joy. He would give everything he had to help anyone, the shirt off his own back if he could, and was always willing to lend a hand when it was needed. He loved spending time with his family and friends. They made him smile and laugh and the jokes were so funny. His mother was his everything, time spent together meant everything to him, it was the most precious of all. The walks, the talks, the childhood fun and the moments meant the world to him. James had many, many people who loved and cared for him, respected him and knew him as the guy: fun loving, free, and a very laid back, cool dude and could be the life of the party. James would always say DOPE (very cool) and was a great listener. He was an emotional being, not selfish or full. He loved life and was a fighter, a true soldier. He didn’t give up easily. James, by no means, was any of the ways that most people saw him. He was so much more, had a beautiful heart inside and out and wouldn’t hurt anyone. He was a special person, caring and thoughtful. He loved life, loved friends and his true friends knew this about him.
James loved to enjoy himself, and his joy and peace came from his passion for music. James had such a passion for music. He loved playing electric and acoustic guitar. He wrote many song pieces and was always willing to learn new things. He was fabulous at what he did. James loved the outdoors, loved parks, picnics, camping, barbecuing. He loved food, loved trying different things. He made everything with flavor. James loved TV shows. He was never too old for cartoons and Comedy. He favored supernatural and action. “Fast and Furiouses” were the best. He loved Dickies – the best clothes out there. He always looked great, very clean cut. James loved his video games a lot and was very good at them all: fighting games, racing games, any games, playing cards, board games, Chess, Checkers, SkipBo, Dominos, and Yu-Gi-Oh Club, for a short time, as a child. James loved the thunder, he felt close to the storm, loved watching it rain and the lightening that shown bright in the night skies. He loved taking walks in the rain, feeling the fresh rain on his face. James loved his pets, 3 cats, 2 dogs: Bubbles, Casper, Sparkey, Smoky and Mitzi. They meant the world to him.
He always believed in setting the balance in touch with the universe, he felt close to the moon and stars. He loved Astrology, Palmistry and loved healing stones: Red Jasper, Amethyst, Tigers Eye and Tourmaline. It connected with his energy and inner self. He believed in natural healing herbs and exploring the benefits of how to be healthy.
James’ first job was at Braum’s. The best thing that came out that job was when he met his best friend Brian. He was a true friend and they shared a story and did many things. Together they shared a strong, solid friendship and an unbelievable passion for music. May they keep rockin! James loved welding in school and out and he loved working with his hands. He got a welder for his birthday so he could continue enjoying his passion for it. He loved woodworking, models, and was always interested in new things. He worked at Metal Fab for a short time and also did house restoration and landscape. He worked at Coleman for a short time as well as Galaxy Audio and graduated from Mulvane High School May 2016.
James will be deeply missed and no amount of time will ever fade that love. James will never be forgotten. He is our angel in Heaven. He is the star shining bright in the clear night sky, the sunshine we feel on our faces. The soft breeze blowing in the wind and the warmth that he left in our hearts.
