He was born Oct. 3, 1942 in Coleman, the son of Joe and Louise Calhoon. As a young man and in his early adulthood, James lived a hardworking life, raising a family that he was very proud of.

He loved spending time with his wife, his children, and his grandchildren as often as he could.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Joe and Louise Calhoon; a brother, Donnie Calhoon; and his sisters, Cleo Carson and Judy Oxford.

He is survived by his wife of 29 years, Terrie Calhoon; sisters, June Hall and Dorothy Brake; daughters, Cathy Maldonado, Angie Cox, and Michelle Day; sons, Randy Calhoon, William Day, and Marshall Day; and many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and extended family.
