In 1967, James would take his future wife on their first date to a historical event to see the Centennial Confederation Train; from there their love would keep them bonded for 54 years.  He loved sports, whether he played or coached a team, and he enjoyed baseball, hockey and golfing.  He attended Brandon University and Yellowquill College.  He had various jobs throughout his life; CN Rail, Sekine, Fire Department, LPFN positions, Maple Leaf, Taxi Driver, Bingo Caller, and for 14 years a School Bus Driver for LP School.  Most memorable was his never-ending love for his wife, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, his great sense of humor, his kind and gentle nature, he was always happy and smiling, whenever he greeted people in a friendly manner.
