A true testament of the fine person James was is by the outpouring support his family received at the Rosary, Mass and reception not to exclude the messages left here and the funeral home website. James had the toughness of his wonderful Dad the compassion and love of life from his beautiful Mom. He has been called home by the Father Almighty and rest assured his Dad, Mom, brother, relatives and all the Loma Park and Holy Cross family were in wait at the purly gates. God Bless. Squeak.

My heart and soul goes out to James and his family for their loss. I worked with James for over 30 years with the company. My first meeting with him was in the early 80's when I was employed as a part-time seasonal driver out of the old UPS Alamo Heights Center. At that time he was a Supervisor there who worked successively on all shifts of the operation. He was there for the drivers in the morning during our Pre-load operation before we left the building, there during the day as an On-Car Supervisor who supported not only the center operation but also helped customers, and then again in the evening at our Un-load operation when the packages were brought back in for processing. He worked his way up in the company serving in various managerial positions throughout the district. I believe he found his ultimate position at our San Antonio Gateway where he could serve an even larger number of individuals which not only included our customers but also everyone that was involved in servicing our customers which affected thousands of people on a daily basis. He was always there to support everyone's success whenever needed. He was especially customer minded and would always go above and beyond to provide excellent service. He stood out as a very warm and friendly individual and manager that would always be positive and supportive even under the most demanding and stressful challenges that were presented. He was a great friend to have and I will truly miss him. Tim Grona

But you know, God is great and He has received James with open arms and James will now and forever serve as God's own KNIGHT. Many blessings to your family as you deal with this great loss. May perpetual light shine on him and may he rest in peace. Love you, Leo! and Eloy Alvarado
