James was preceded in death by his parents, C. Henley Parker and Zora Ford Parker; and his sister, Billie Bland.
James was born August 28, 1937 in Lowell, AR where he lived for forty-five years until moving to Rogers, AR, where he remained until his death. He began a farming career at a young age which he continued, in one form or another, throughout his life. He enjoyed quail hunting throughout the NWA area and fishing for crappie and bass in Beaver Lake. Later in life, he enjoyed shooting rifles at Hobbs State Park, shooting range, with friends. He had a great love for his kids and grandkids.
A private family service will be held at a later date.
