James worked as a Certified Personal Trainer and enjoyed working out daily and training others, especially at Operation Par in Clearwater. James also worked as a NATE certified HVAC Technician.
James was indeed a beautiful son. It was very clear how much he loved his girls. The most endearing part of James was the part that was almost child-like; gentle, hopeful, loving and funny. James was talented in writing and speaking ... he loved reading and had many books. His hobby was art ... he was a self-taught artist. He had a gift of drawing and painting. For Christmas 2016, he gifted his parents and girls his artwork on canvas. James also loved music, especially country western songs.
