James' children fondly remember their father as always there to listen and guide them, wonderful memories of him cheering from the sidelines of the soccer fields and welcoming their friends in their home as if they were his own children. He also will be remembered for the fun family vacations and always there to lend a helping hand. James was a great man, whom many called their friend, hardworking, caring and a great

listener. He had a servant's heart. James will be dearly missed.
