James was born on October 20, 1946 in Corsicana to the late Melvin Ray Adams, and Wanda Beasley Beene, and his step-father R. B. Beene. James took pride in being the best big brother to his little sisters. He enlisted in the Navy on March 8th, 1968 and served in Vietnam for 2 years. He married Bonnie Sue Bleeker on September 8, 1974 in Corsicana. They were married for 42 years. He raised Mary Jo and not long after he raised Forrest. He took much pride in being the best grandpa and great-grandpa that anyone could ever ask or hope for. From a young man, James was a heavy equipment operator up until 15 years ago. He then became a truck driver. His passions consisted of fishing, hunting, and taking care of the animals on the farm. James was a very loving, and giving man, who will not be forgotten, but only cherished.
James is survived by his wife, Bonnie; daughter, Mary Jo Kelly; grandson, Forrest and wife Danielle Kelly; grandchildren, Zachary, Autumn, and Silas; sisters, Sharon Bland, Garla Reed, Linda Spicer, and Susanne Huffman. James is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
