James served his country during the Korean Conflict in the United States Navy and was extremely proud of the service he rendered. He was a retired operator for the Monsanto Chemical Corporation in Luling.
He was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers, and four sisters. As of late, he was a Greeter at Wal-Mart.

He also leaves his grandson, Duane Batusic (wife Cindy), two great-grandkids, Rose and Alex, his sister, Barbara York (husband Phil), and a host of nieces and nephews.
Funeral services were held on Sept. 29 from the sanctuary of First Baptist Church in Olla with the Rev. Malcomb Richard officiating. Interment with full military honors followed in the Urania Cemetery under the direction of Riser Funeral Home of Olla.
