Deputy JamesB - Passed away this afternoon

Postby Gator » Fri Dec 11, 2009 6:57 pm

Folks

Its with great regret I type this note. I learned a little while ago that JamesB died this afternoon. I cant begin to express the complete sense of loss I am feeling for his family, friends and many forum friends. There are very few whole heartedly good people in the world. James was. He was a caring friend who always pitched in, helped out and went the extra mile to help those who knew him. I just cant put to words the sorrow I feel for losing him. He will be deeply missed.

I don't have all the details, what I currently understand is that James had some type of breathing issues that flared up occasionally and this afternoon those breathing issues overtook him and he died before the paramedics could get there.

Please pray for his family.

As I receive more details, we will post those here. I know in the days, weeks and months to come we will want to remember all the good things James did + offer our love and support to his family.


Proverbs 3: 5 - 6. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

I can only think that the man upstairs needed him more that we did. Knee mail to the family on its way.

I just talked to Jim on the phone. This is a complete shock to me. I saw James posting just a few hours ago...

James was a great guy. I was fortunate enough to meet James and taste his cookin. And man, he could cook some Q!

Prayers are going out to Julie and his 2 girls...

I really dont know what to say...

Oh my...I am at a loss of words. Prayers to his family. Some things I guess I just won't understand until it's my time. James was a friend of mine I never got to meet. He will be greatly missed.

I don't know what to say but will remember his family in my prayers. What a shock.

I would like to add that I didn't know James as well as many of you here but I do know that he was a caring man and always ready to help someone out when they needed it. I only wish I'd had the opportunity to know him better.

I had the pleasure to meet James at the first TBBQF get-together. He picked me up at the airport and I stayed with him at the farm. He was truly a great and giving person.
I will miss talking to him on the phone as we did many times.

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. He will truly be missed.

I enjoyed exchanging information with James on several other BBQ forums over the last couple of years. He was a respected by the the entire online BBQ community and will be missed by many coast to coast. RIP JamesB
