James was preceded in death by his grandparents Houston and Janie White; son James “Booga” White, Jr.; granddaughter Labriyan Eleby-Whitfield; and brother Robert White. James went by “Lucky Black” and was known as a very outgoing person. He was a great father, brother, grandfather, and child. James had the biggest smile on his face especially when his kids came to see him, and going to church on Sunday Mornings. James was a great man and always knew how to put a smile on anyone’s face. He also loved to make jokes and play dice, he was good at it too. If there was one thing he would want right now it would be for everyone to be happy. This isn’t a sad time, it is a celebration.
