TUSCALOOSA - Ervin "Gene" James went to be with the Lord on October 27, 2018 at the Tuscaloosa VA Medical Center.

He is survived by his brother, Dennis (Frances); sons, Jeremy (Emily) and Chad James; future daughter-in-law, Lillie White; and grandchildren, Jasmine, Jameel and Jeremiah.
Gene graduated from Tuscaloosa High School in 1968, and after serving in the United States Navy for two years, returned to Tuscaloosa. He worked a variety of laboring jobs throughout his life and retired in 2001.
He was a simple man that loved his Alabama Football, Levi Garrett Chewing Tobacco and Fried Fish from the City Cafe.

The family would like to express special gratitude to the staff at the Tuscaloosa VA, the VA Medical Foster Care system, and to Clay and Florea Sanding of Carrollton, Alabama for their care for Gene during this time. The family would also like to express their praise to God for Brother Harold Whitt, who ministered to Gene and led him to the Lord.
