My Story

When people pass, we like to remember only the good things about them. It is in that spirit that I write this. Also, I can only write the parts that I know about, so please forgive me if I leave some things out.

James was born April 16, 1980. The oldest son of Laura Stewart. He grew up in  his "Nan's" house in Steel City. He was later joined by a brother and sister. His family was pretty large(by my standards), with cousins, aunts and unlces.  He always seemed to enjoy spending time with his cousins. Although they didnt always get along, he loved his family very much. His mom was his best friend whom he told everything too.  He attended school in the Saucon Valley School district, making the honor roll a few times. He dropped out his Junior year.

As a teenager he really enjoyed doing things outdoors like hunting, fishing and camping. He liked to listen to Heavy Metal, rap and pretty much enjoyed all music. He loved to blast the bass in his car until the windows rattled!  He also enjoyed watching wrestling, Stone Cold Steve Austin was one of his favorites. He liked to play pool. He loved fast food, cheese steaks, burgers(with cheese, no lettuce, no tomato and no onion), taco bell, pizza (we always got deep dish with extra cheese and bacon) etc. One of his favorite movies was "Army of Darkness" He didn't like school that much, too many rules. He never liked to be told what to do and enjoyed his freedom to do whatever made him happy. He liked to drink. He liked to party and he liked to smoke :) 

James was the kind of person who always tried to help others when he could. He was a very hard worker when he wanted to be.  With his blonde hair{although later in life he shaved it :)}, bright eyes and brillant smile, he made friends very easily and for the most part was very easy to get along with. 

James had 3 sons. He loved his children very much and wanted to be the best father he could be for them. Unfortunately I think he was a little lost because he did not have a father in his life. It was hard for him. 

Sadly and without reason he was murdered, shot in the back by a coward who had/has no business carrying a firearm. 

James always wanted to turn his life around. I believe that he truly wanted to be what everyone knew he could be. He had so many skills, he could have run his own business. He could have been an amazing father to his children for many many years.  Sadly, he will never get the chance. He never really got a chance to see his kids grow up, some were just babies when he died and will never have a memory with him in it. It makes me so mad that everything was so violently taken away from him at such a young age.

Those who knew him, will always remember him, in their own way.
