1962 - 2014 Obituary Condolences
John James Obituary
John James We are heartbroken to announce the death of our beloved John James: Father, Husband, Son, Brother, Classmate, Colleague and beloved Friend. John was taken from us too soon on July 4, 2014. He was born on July 24, 1962, to Albert and Sandy James. He grew up in Marin County, attending Terra Linda and San Marin high schools. John then graduated from St. Mary's College in Moraga where he made friends that he cherished for his entire life. John worked as a CPA before enrolling in Empire College School of Law where he met his wife Melissa. While attending Empire, John and Melissa welcomed into the world their precious boys Jack, Cole and Chad. After passing the Bar Exam, John excelled in the field of finance, working for several companies in the Bay Area including Waste Management, Sola, Lasercraft, Rheodyne, Flowmaster Mufflers and most recently Imperial Contracting. He was a 49er Faithful Fan and he rarely missed a San Francisco Giants game, but his heart was happiest when he was outside. An avid hunter, runner, swimmer, biker, and triathlete, John found his joy spending time outside with friends and family. His favorite spot on earth was anywhere his boys were. In addition to his sons Jack, Cole and Chad and his wife Melissa, John will be forever missed by his mother Sandra James; his sisters Sherryl (Pete) Adams and Jennifer James; his nieces and nephews Steele and Jacqueline Wiles, Nick Riggin, Audreanna, Erica and Angela Bowles and Sam Adams; and his in-laws Peter and Ann Musso and Julia (Bob) Bowles, and his loyal dogs Duke and Mia. He is now in the loving arms of his father Albert James who preceded him in death. Memorial services will be announced very soon. If desired, John would be honored for any donations in his memory to assist in the education of his children. The James Boys Memorial Fund has been established at Exchange Bank, 500 Larkfield Center, Santa Rosa, CA 95403. He changed our lives with his warm smile and gentle ways. He will be missed but never ever forgotten. DANIELS CHAPEL OF THE ROSES FUNERAL AND CREMATION SERVICES 707-525-3730
