James married Haley See of Seadrift on March 21st, 2016 and together had a daughter, Paislee James. He worked as an Operator for D & B Flowback & Well Testing.
James, affectionately known as "Cowboy," loved to hunt, camp, and fish. He learned to do most of this and much more at his great grandpa's ranch in Fannin. He called it the "country". He held this place dearly in his heart for all the early childhood memories of the time he spent there. He never met a stranger and had an infectious smile and personality. He will be deeply missed by everyone that knew him.
