    James was what held our class of 1963 together in the past 20 years or so. He drove a truck and would call classmates several times a year to keep up with them. He was the one who kept addresses, phone numbers, etc. He would pass this information along to others. He was the one who wanted to do class reunions and planned several with help of others. James was a kind hearted person who would do anything he could to help. He will be missed by us. Prayers to the family – your dad was a good man.
