Curtis "Roger" James

December 11, 1945 ~ May 14, 2023 (age 77) 77 Years Old


Curtis “Roger” James of Danielsville, age 77, formerly of Colbert passed away at his home surrounded by family May 14, 2023.

Roger was born December 11, 1945, in Athens, Georgia to Curtis and Lillie Ree Morris James.  A devoted Christian, quietly practicing his faith through service to others, Roger was a life-long member of Colbert First Baptist Church.  He graduated from Madison County High School in 1964 and married Patricia “Pat” Walls of Watkinsville in 1965.  Married for more than 57 years, they made a home together in his hometown of Colbert for over 40 years. He served in the U.S. Army Reserve and was a founding member of the Colbert Volunteer Fire Department. In 1970, he established Roger James Tire Service where his customers, if they were not already, became friends.  He spent his remaining years in Danielsville near his daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren who were the apples of his eye—rarely missing any of their activities.

Roger was preceded in death by his parents, Curtis and Lillie Ree James.  He is survived by his wife, Pat; daughter, Sheila James Davis (Patton) of Danielsville; grandson, Spencer Patton Davis of Tampa, Florida; and Alexandra Elise “Alexi” Davis of Danielsville.

While the family welcomes flowers, donations may also be made to Colbert First Baptist Church (P.O. Box 318, Colbert, GA 30628) or to Fellowship of Christian Athletes (P.O. Box 862, Colbert, GA 30628).

Visitation will be held at Lord & Stephens Danielsville on Tuesday, May 16 from 6:00-8:00 p.m.  The funeral service will be held at Colbert First Baptist Church on Wednesday, May 17 at 11:00 a.m. followed by a graveside service at Colbert Cemetery.

Lord and Stephens, Danielsville is in charge of arrangements.
