James loved horses and riding and rode until this past Christmas when he gifted his granddaughter his horse. James attended grade schools in Lenapah and for a short time in Tulsa. After the family moved back to Lenapah, he attended Lenapah High School. There is where he met the love of his life Doris L.

He prayed daily for family, friends, the unsaved, the sick, anyone who needed a closer relationship with God and for the betterment of our nation.
