He worked for the State of Texas for 30 years in food stamps, quality control ,and lastly as a child support office manager for the Attorney General's Office.

James loved to talk politics and have challenging conversations about most subjects. His humor was appreciated by most. Communing with nature was one of his favorite past times. He was an avid reader and especially liked grammar books and diagramming sentences. Before he became to ill to attend he tried to attend as many of his grandchildren's sporting events as possible, most often wearing the appropriate school apparel. He was extremely proud of them and their accomplishments.

James' body was donated to the Willed Body Program at Southwest Medical School. He requested that no services be held and the family is honoring those wishes.
