After graduating from Angola High School in 1957, James joined the United States Coast Guard for four years.

He was preceded in death by his Parents, Orla and Wanda Myers and a sister, Barbara June Payne.  

His friend Byron would often come down to his house and make breakfast for he and Jim which Jim loved.
