David Warren James was born on August 22nd, 1954, and passed away on July 6th, 2021, at the age of 66 years old.
David grew up in Fort Worth, Texas, and resided in his family home until his passing. He graduated from Western Hills High School. Since his high school days, David had an avid love for all things cars, and enjoyed driving around town with his friends. His love of hot rods and drag racing ever since high school continued and he could often be found tinkering in the garage on his latest project. For work, David held a number of jobs, spending the majority of his time working on computers in the field of Information Technology.
David was a loving father and husband, and truly a light in the life of those around him. His easy-going nature and infectious smile were like the beacon of a lighthouse, calling love and laughter to those around him. David loved the ocean, and nautical-themed items seemed to always find their way into his hands. In his final years, he was able to enjoy the outdoors. He and his wife would spend weekends at the lake in their mobile camper, enjoying the beauty and quiet serenity of nature.
David is preceded in death by his mother, MaeDean James.

As he instructed, there will be no services for David. Those close to David celebrated his life with him every day they were able to. David’s wishes were to be cremated with his ashes finding a final resting place near the ocean.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain
