I hate to read that James passed away. I’m not sure exactly how my daddy, Orren Bowling, and he were related but I used to love to visit he and Johnnie when I younger. I know he got my dad started in the oil business many years ago and my dad had a lot of respect for James. He was a mess but Johnny kept him in line pretty well for sure. I have lots of great memories about both of them and I will treasure them always. My condolences to his family. RIP Mr. James.

We loved Uncle James so much. Boyd worked for him when he was younger. We loved spending time at his and Aunt Johnnies house. Those were special times. Wish I could be there but I'm on lock down like everyone else. My love goes out to Pat and Ricky and all their families. Frankye Tipton Deire sends her love as well.

I loved to go to Reklaw as a child. Visiting myGreat Grandmother Lula Wallace. My Grandmother Jimmie Bowling would usually take us. I enjoyed seeing James then and enjoyed seeing him on the Teledyne drilling rigs later in life.
He was always positive and happy to see me greeting me with a big handshake.
I have missed having the family reunions at Walkers Chapel they were so fun and educational about the family. My Gradmothers walking with us telling us stories of all the people.
James will be missed by many friends and family. He was a Great Man.
