James and his wife, Bess, would have shared their 73rd wedding anniversary this month. He was respected and dearly loved by all his children. His son and daughter-in-law Lawris and Deborah Roach as well as his three daughters and their husbands David and Celeste Unfred, Bruce and Cia Griffin and Rick and Tricia Schmitt knew him to be an amazing, Godly man with a legacy that will continue to flourish throughout time.

He was an excellent listener and always faithful to share words of encouragement or pray with us, his 15 grandchildren, 23 great- and three great-great-grandchildren.

Arrangements were by Wiley Funeral Home.
