James enjoyed anything that involved competition. He loved throwing darts, playing golf and watching football. He knew how to light up a room with his infectious charisma and uncanny ability to put “smiles on faces” (even throughout his darkest hour). He valued family and friends that became family. He lived his life based on his favorite quote.

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”   ~Maya Angelou
