James worked for Southern States Co-Op for 20 years and was also a farmer until he lost his sight in a hunting accident, then his main focus was his family. What he enjoyed most in life was getting a laugh from someone, gardening and sharing that with neighbors, spending time with his grandkids and just sitting on his front porch waving at whoever passed by.  He formerly attended New Hope Baptist Church.
