James "Jim" Thomas Traylor rode away on his bike for one last ride on the road to heaven Sunday August 4, 2019 to be with the Lord at the age of 76. Jim was born on February 20, 1943 and spent his life working hard to provide for his family.

He served in the navy and retired from the railroad as an Engineer with a perfect record after 35 years of service. Jim enjoyed riding motorcycles, and spending time with family and friends. He was witty and extremely intelligent. He'd literally give you the shirt off his back, as he was always giving away his things or letting others borrow them.

Mr. Traylor is preceded in death by his father, James Traylor; mother, Lydia Belle Craig Traylor; son, James Lee Traylor; brother, Bill Traylor; sister, Betty Jane "Missy" Stovall; nieces, Kimberly Lindsey and Carrie Chandler; step-mother, Ruby Traylor.

Those left to cherish Mr. Traylor's memories are his wife, Janice Lee Traylor of Mt Selman, Texas; daughter, Jody Bebawi (Nader) of Katy, Texas; daughter, Tammy Leetzow (Kirk) of Los Cabos, Mexico; son, Billy Matthews of Tyler, Texas.

His 5 grandchildren Kenneth, Jaime, Josh, Jeremy and Brandon loved him dearly, he had a nickname for each of them. He also had 2 precious great grandchildren.

He touched so many lives and will be dearly missed. Until we meet again.
