It is with great sorrow that we announce James transitioned to the afterlife with his family and friends by his side after suffering injuries sustained in a car accident July 10, 2023.
James was a fighter and fought a long battle for his life at Denver Health Medical Center but eventually the internal damages were more than his body could heal from and his spirit left this earth on August 18, 2023.
James was a hard- working man, a Master Plumber who overcame many odds in his life to become an entrepreneur and successful business owner of Top Notch Plumbing. For over 40 years, he was an innovative creative craftsman in everything that he did.
James travelled the streets of Denver in his job with his beloved dog Sky. He was an energetic tenacious go-getter and was always “doing something”. James was generous to his community and those less fortunate than himself, and was in-route to serving his community when the accident occurred. He was a Dog lover and a devoted owner of many German Shepherds throughout his life.
He had a bright personality he was a Caring, Loving and Giving person. He was also outspoken and fought for what he believed in. He was charismatic and jovial which is what made him such a likable guy, in turn he had many friends from all different walks of life. James had many lifelong friends, neighbors and clients that he engaged with regularly. His presence is greatly missed at this tragic time and his community and friends have shown an outpouring of support for his family.
