Hello Doris and Family, I worked with James at Lockheed Martin in Marietta Ga, James was a super nice guy and loyal employee, James Always kept a supply of watermelon chewing gum in his toolbox, he knew it was my favorite. James was always a kind hearted person who loved his family dearly. Lockheed was never the same for me after his retirement. My prayers and thoughts are with you and family.
