James Davis Bills

James Davis Bills was born on September 6, 1944, in Roxton, Texas to his parents, Pedell Davis and Simmie Patterson Bills. He was raised with his siblings, Cecil, Pedell, Jr., Namon and Joyce. As a child, he found joy in playing with marbles and Tonka toys. He nurtured baby turtles and delighted in going to the movies. Baseball held a special place in James' heart, and he actively participated in the sport. Additionally, he went to the community center for tap lessons, roller skating and board game sessions.

After graduating from Manual High School in 1962, James pursued further education at aviation school and mechanical trade school. He utilized his skills as a mechanic during his career, contributing to well-known companies such as Gates Rubber Company, Mountain Bell, and Medved. James was highly regarded for his exceptional work ethic and technical abilities.

He found comfort in watching church services online with inspirational speakers such as Joel Osteen and TD Jakes.
