Sending prayers to all of the family at this difficult time. My husband, Roy Joyce, who passed away back in 2016, was a long-time friend of James. He would not take his trucks to anyone except James to fix through the years. I knew James through him and came to realize that he was a sincere, trustworthy person!

So saddened to hear James Adams had passed away so suddenly. Growing up I always knew him to be a very good and humble person,as was his wife Elizabeth.
He leaves behind many friends who always looked to James for his expertise in Auto Mechanics. They knew him to be honest and straight with them and in this day it will be extremely hard to replace someone like him.
Please know our prayers will be with the family as they make many decisions throughout this coming week. God’s bless each of you.!!

Sorry to hear about James. I use to eat in Glenwood at restaurant in town with him and many more daily for years. He worked on several vehicles for me. I truly think, he was best mechanic in this area. Haven’t seen him in several years, but I wish condolences to his family. He was a fine man.
