Knew James from our days in 3rd grade at Lamar School. Lost touch after HS. James was always friendly and a strong positive roll model. Aloha,

I taught at Greenville HS for 12 1/2 years with James. I enjoyed our chats across the hall between classes. He had a great approach to students using his Christian beliefs. I admire how he loved teaching and influencing young people. I pray for strength for his family.
