James was a lifelong resident of Akron and member of First Congregational Church. He was born on Berwin St. where he grew up, married and raised his own family. He was a graduate of North High School, class of 1942. He went to work at Remples toy store and was then hired by BF Goodrich. Soon after he became part owner of the Newton Brass Foundry in Barberton, a company started by their father in the early 20's, with his brothers John and Rob and sister Flo. James was your typical blue-collar worker and continued to help manage the business until he retired. One of his favorite pastimes was ballroom dancing with his wife. He also enjoyed being with family, watching and talking about sports, a love for animals, and golfing.
