One of James' greatest enjoyments was riding his Harley. He loved to travel, whether on a day trip on his bike or to take in scenery across the states. He also looked forward every year to riding with fellow members of the Krewe of Terreanians.
James was greatly enjoying his life of retirement after 33 years of dedicated service with Schlumberger. He was a treasured and unforgettable regular at his favorite hangout, Boudreau and Thibodeau's Cajun Cookin' in Houma.
James will be missed by the many great friends he made throughout his lifetime, and we will all remember this gentle giant for his humble generosity, subtle humor, and of course, his fantastic crawfish boils. He will be dearly missed by all, but his love and character will never be forgotten.
"It's Monday again... oh wait! I'm retired!"
