He spent many days exploring in caves in the Uintah mountains. We believe James has found his gold in heaven. Most of all, James dearly loved his family and every minute he spent with them. He also loved his "pupperdogs" - his yellow lab, Sandy and his Sheltie collie, Apache. James was a kind and generous man. He had a special way of lifting your spirits with his wit, his great smile and his "big James" hugs. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
