I am a descendant of the James family out of Oakesdale, Washington. I grew up in Spokane and graduated in the first graduating class of Ferris High School. I entered the Army in 1966 with my brother Ken. I worked there as an air traffic controller until 1969 when I entered college. I've been working ever since and hope to retire in 2017. My wife Linda and I are both active in our church, and we cherish our relationship with Jesus.
