James was honored to be a Tribal Elder of the Saginaw Chippewa Tribe of Michigan and cherished all the people of his tribe, their history and traditions. He was a master carpenter all his life following the footsteps of our Lord Jesus. Cars and motorcycles were his passion and he truly "lived to ride".
