James was an admired student and graduate from Liberty Hill High School who loved basketball and a variety of sports as well as hunting with his Uncle Roger, Uncle Clint and PaPa. James loved many genres of music and aspired to be a sports commentator for a national network. He enjoyed working at his sales clerk job at a local convenient store where he always had a smile on his face and was recognized for being a shining star employee. James leaves behind a large circle of family and friends, as well as Buu Kitty that loved him dearly; all cannot wait for the day that they will be reunited with him in the Land of the Lord.
