James loved NASCAR and dirt track racing, it didn’t matter. He was an Earnhardt fan and had many of his collectibles. He was also a Dallas Cowboys fan all his life. He always enjoyed pulling for the UNC Tarheels during the tournaments. James loved people and never met a stranger and enjoyed talking and joking around with people. He was always ready to start up a ROOK game and he and his partner would win every time. James loved the outdoors, sitting on his porch, mowing, and planting flowers. He enjoyed the fellowship of his brothers and sisters in Christ at Penn Memorial Baptist Church, where he was a member. He could not always attend because of health issues but he loved to call and talk with the members.

Cindy I am so sorry to hear of James' passing. Ray and I loved chatting with James at the car shows. I know he loved the car shows just about as much as anyone. Hope you will continue to be at the shows with your vehicles. We were neighbors for many years and had lots of good memories on Washington Avenue with James , Mildred and your family. You are in my prayers and I cannot imagine what it's like to lose your soul mate. Take care.
