James worked various jobs in his lifetime. He retired in 1995 after many years in the employment industry. Later in life, James enjoyed his life. He was always dressed to the 9’s and loved his cars. No matter what time of day, you would find James’s wiping and shining up his car. His greatest joy was his latest old school, Cadillac, in which his ONLY SON GIFTED HIM! James cherished his Cadillac so MUCH! Although he didn’t drive it often, he didn’t want ANYONE ELSE DRIVING IT! On one occasion, he found out that someone besides him had driven his Cadillac, he drove his car to Missouri to his son’s house and politely took his extra set of keys from him. James loved to eat, especially food from his daughter-in-law, Marietta. Marietta would load him up with all his sweets and send him home with a week’s worth of food. James also enjoyed his nephew’s girl, Katina food. He liked her Chili and everything else she cooked. James’ Greatest Blessings were his children in which he nicknamed “ Tone Tone” and “ Babygirl” Tone Tone always had to have his way and Babygirl could do NO WRONG!
