James was born in Farmersville, Texas on November 6, 1942 and grew up in South Oak Cliff, Texas.
After winning the battle with lung cancer he was taken from us peacefully on September 1, 2009 due to heart failure at the age of 66.

He was preceded in death by his parents Willis Green and Mary Ellon Ward, sisters Wanda, Freddie and Bobbie, and brothers Hass(Buddy) and Glenn.

James is survived by wife Judy, children Kevin, Shelley and Dena, step-children David and Tiffani, 15 grandchildren, 5 great-grandchildren, brother Joe; sister-in-laws Gale, Gladys and Charlene; brother-in-law Don Elliott and numerous nieces and nephews.

Occasionally called Poopsie, better known as Ward, he enjoyed spending time with family/friends and for those that knew him knew him well and will live on to tell his tale.

Donations in James' memory can be made to the Cancer Society of America.
