Still have fond memories of James from growing up in Longview and at UT
September 27, 2016
I had the pleasure of meeting James and his Wife Janie at a UT baseball game at Rice in 2005. He was so gracious and was more interested in asking me questions so he could get to know me. I was very impressed with his humbleness & kindness. I did get to talk with him again briefly at Rice a year later.

He was everything people said he was. A true Gentleman, and a person that easily inspired others. I'm thankful I had a chance to meet him.

I grew up in the neighboring town of Greggton, now a part of Longview. There was hardly a time that James was not mentioned as a stellar athlete in baseball and football. I also had the privilege of serving in the National Guard with James some time later. He was revered and admired by people of all ages. Growing up we all wanted to be like James. He will be truly missed.
