James remained close with his brother, Ferguson "Fergie" Ebarb right to the end. He enjoyed fishing with his brothers and close friends and always looked forward to dove and duck season with his son and nephews. Also, left to cherish his memory are his sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was a 1955 graduate of Homer High School where he was a highly recognized student and athlete. He was a parishioner of St. Joseph Catholic Church where he was a member of the Supper Club and Men's Fellowship. He was a founding member of Sacred Heart Church in Shreveport.
James began his career as a computer operator at United Gas, Pennzoil Corporation, and later at First National Bank of Shreveport. He returned to Pennzoil Corporation from where he retired.
James and Angie had a circle of friends who were very special to them. They shared a love and compassion for each other and their families. He was a true family man, but secondary to his family was his lifelong fervor for the LSU Tigers where his favorite saying was, "Go it Tigers!".
