He was always there to lend a helping hand when needed and always wore his heart on his sleeve. He made friends with everyone he encountered. He was also a big fan of the Detroit Lions football team.

James was preceded in death by his sister, Jennifer Brenda Reed. Survivors include his parents, Jim and Rebecca Reed of Waukon; his sister, Amy Reed, and his nephew and niece, Johnny R. Goreham and Evelyn R. Seng, all from Waukon; his former partner, Jillian (Nathan) Murray of Granger, IN, along with two daughters, Nadia Reed and Natalie Reed; and his former wife, Jessica Fox, and two daughters, Jennifer R. Reed and Jasmine Reed, from Mishawaka, IN.
