- In memory of our loving son, brother, nephew, uncle and friend. The Lord blessed us with James on July 31, 1985, and took him to his home in heaven on April 26, 2008, at the age of 22. James life was his family, and he also had a passion for his Native American culture. He was a member of the Karuk Tribe.

James liked to listen to hip-hop, rap and rock music, but most of all he loved singing songs at church and being with his nieces and nephews. He also loved Mexican food, salsa, nachos, tacos, and burritos were his favorite. His dream vacation was to go to Mexico. James also had a dream of people being clean and sober. He spent most of his time with his family, and loved going camping and to the creek with his family and friends. James was the most helpful son, brother, nephew, uncle and friend. He lived with all of us, and always came to us in our time of need. He would cook, clean, and do yard work and care for his nieces and nephews. He was the best babysitter ever. We always had to depend on and be there for us. Thank you for giving us your love and care. We have you in our hearts and our love and the memories of you will never fade.
