Larry Douglas James

Larry Douglas James of Oak Hill died April 18, 2014, at his home following a long illness.

 Born Dec. 21, 1952, in Oak Hill, he was the son of the late Paskell Davis James and Icie Missouri Drennen James. Larry also was preceded in death by his wife, Deborah “Debbie” Lynn Atha James; children, Jason Douglas and Charlean Renee; father-in-law, Charley Hampton Atha; brother, Kenneth James; sister, Evelyn Nugen and her husband, Bert Nugen; and brother-in-law, Charley “CH” Atha Jr.

Larry was a 1971 graduate of Collins High School, and he was a member of Mountain View Church of God at Hilltop where he served as a member of the choir and a past member of the board of directors for Mountain View Christian School.

Before his illness, Larry had been caregiver for his late wife and worked as a vehicle salesman. Most people in Fayette County would know his friendly face from Deligne’s Ford, previously in Ansted, where he worked for many years.

Larry will be remembered by his family and friends for his playfulness and love for friends and family. If you were his friend, you knew that he would always be there for you. Larry loved God, his friends and family, music, his guitars, cars, and his guns. He liked nothing more than to sing at church, and his deep voice singing “The Lighthouse” with hands raised and tears in his eyes, receiving a blessing and blessing others, will not be forgotten. He was a big teddy bear with a huge heart, and his hugs will be missed by all who knew him.

Surviving: his daughter, Tiffany James of Simpsonville, S.C.; “adopted” daughter, Brandi Turner and her son, Corban; brother, Orville James and wife Anna; sisters-in-law, Deborah Atha and Judith James Price; nieces, Kristi Atha-Rader, Joyce Fawcett, Karen Hildebrand, Diane Hogan, and Sandra Price; nephews, Danny James, Chip Atha, Allen Nugen, Shawn James, Kenny James, and Chris James; several great-nieces and great-nephews; and many close friends.

Services were held April 23 at Mountain View Church of God, Hilltop, with Rev. Rudell Bloomfield officiating. Burial followed in Gethsemane Memorial Gardens, Pea Ridge Road, Oak Hill.

Donations in his memory can be made to the Mountain View Christian School scholarship fund.
