He practiced at Patton State Hospital, Riverside Regional Medical Center, and concluded his practice with San Bernardino County Mental Health He had a remarkable mind, and an incredible drive, teaching Latin and math for ten years to save up money to attend medical school in the USA. He provided a life long example of hard work, serving others, and lived an honest and humble life. He truly had an uncomplaining spirit, even as his health declined during the last few years. In addition to his many professional pursuits, James enjoyed gardening, reading, and spending time with his family. He enjoyed watching Tiger Woods and Nebraska football games. The simple things in life were the most important to him. Our family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the staff at Mission Commons Assisted Living in Redlands for their exceptional care. We love you Dad/Grandpa/Great-grandpa! Until we meet again, may God hold you near him, as we wish we could. There will always be an invisible string that connects you to our hearts.
