I knew in my heart you were in heaven when the Christmas and birthday calls stopped and my emails were unanswered. This year was my last email to you. I googled and found this obit. You were a dear friend to my family here in Cali. And my mentor for work. I have a feeling you found my dad in heaven. I miss you.

James you will be missed by all the lives of everyone you touched. James God bless your family and friends. Max Gibson, November 28, 2016 James was a special friend and classmate. I first met him in the Seventh Grade when the Catholic School, which I attended, participated in a sports event with South School, which, James attended. Needless to say he personally won most of the events. Later I was fortunate to get to know him as classmate and fellow athlete. James was the star on our football team. I was the Quarterback and it made my job easier to know that all I had to do was hand him the ball and get out of the way. It was great to see the bodies in his wake as he rumbled down the field. He will be missed. Joseph Womack, November 28, 2016 I was a classmate of James in the class of 1959, Humboldt, KS. Although we've all have gone our separate ways in life, it was always a joy by all whenever James made it back to Humboldt to an HHS alumni reunion. --An outstanding Christian gentleman well like by everyone whose life he touched.
