He had graduated all schools with honors despite his handicap from the age of 12. James was the life of the party with a ready smile making all who met him the richer for it. James was kind, very warm hearted with a fantastic sense of humor. He was loved by many and was loved by all. He loved working with Inteletravel creating and booking cruises. Meeting new people and traveling the world. James could not drive a car due to his disability yet he managed to see the world. Nothing stopped him. James also loved pets, The New York Yankees, New York Giants, playing the drums and listening to the Beatles.
