Thank you for the short time we had together when I lived in Fayetteville. Working at Troy and Debbie’s shop was an experience and you were a huge part of it. To the family, thanks for sharing James. I learned a lot from him in the short time that I got with him. Plus he had some good stories about Troy!


He was a very good step father! I have a lot of memories from the past. He gave Troy and I a very good life.. always helping with our school work to taking us on vacations! Showing Troy and Eric how to build houses! Troy and I would always ride in the back of his truck on top of the tool box lol .
He was a great man ❤️
