James loved spending time with his family and friends. His passions were working on vehicles, riding his bike around town, hiking, camping, and most of all spending time and taking care of his friends and family without hesitation. His big blue eyes and smile could light up any room he entered. His giant heart made it easy to tell what kind of man he was. No matter what situation or task was put before him he would overcome.Read More & Leave Condolences »
