James was a member of the First Church of the Nazarene, East Brewton. He was an aspiring author, having self-published several novels. In addition to writing, James enjoyed growing flowers, making wooden toys for children, and helping others who were less fortunate than he. He was a loving and caring husband to Damaris (“Dee”) Esther Weaver, who also passed into eternity on November 27, 2020. “Jim” and “Dee” were married May 20, 1989.
