James was born April 8, 1966 in Mexia to Jodie and Thelma Lavette McElroy Teer, youngest of four children. In 1997, he moved back to Mexia to take care of his parents, after his dad had a stroke. James married his loving wife, Jovonna Klepper in Shiloh on Oct. 22, 2010.
James enjoyed working at Walmart, always making every effort in doing his job well, as in any job; having a good work ethic was important to him. He enjoyed playing dominos, watching Jeopardy and was a big Dallas Cowboy fan. He also loved trivia, history and geography.
