Patrick James

1943 ~ 2019 (age 75)


Patrick James, 75, born November 6, 1943, passed away at his home in Lake Odessa on June 2, 2019.  He is survived by his wife, Mary, son Patrick (Chandell) and their children Alex, Nick and Solarah; son Andrew (Sequoyah) and their children Dravien, Bobby.  He was a much-loved husband, father, grandfather, brother-in-law, uncle and friend.

Pat was always happiest when he could be at home, looking to the woods and puttering in his pole building.  He dearly loved sharing Monday morning breakfast at the round table, Wednesday night dinners with family and friends, and Friday night happy hours at Larry’s bar.  He was a master at zingers and loved to make people laugh.  He treasured the summer camping trips to Holland State Park and the many over the road trips with family.  He was smart and strong and funny and will be dearly missed by all who knew him. 

Parkinson’s Disease tried hard to claim him. He fought the good fight. Peace and love dear man. You won.  A time of remembrance will be held on Thursday, June 6, 2019 at Koops Funeral Chapel, from 3pm-6pm.  Memorial contributions in Pat’s name can be given to Jordan Lake Trail.  Online condolences can be left
