James was an active supporter of St. Joseph's Hospital, St. Basil Greek Orthodox Church and many other local organizations. Since his teenage years, James worked in the family trucking business, Blincoe Trucking Company, which was later renamed BJJ Company, LLC. After years of dedication and hard work he went on to become President/CEO of the company that his father, F. Earl Blincoe, had founded in 1944. Outside of work, James had a strong passion for Arabian horses; showing, judging, and breeding horses for the greater portion of his life. He was a lifelong member of the Arabian Horse Association and served on the Board of Governors for Farmer Insurance. The most important part of James life was his family, most recently his twin grandchildren who brought him so much joy. He will be deeply missed by all. James is preceded in death by his father F. Earl Blincoe and mother Helen Blincoe.
