Memories Timeline


  1. My condolences to the James family during this difficult time. In the Bible, Jehovah God gives us hope. Acts 24:15 says, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” Revelation 21:4 says, “and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” Very soon we will see the fulfillment of these promises here on Earth. We hope you find comfort in God’s promises.

  2. This is a great loss for those of us who knew him and a greater loss for those who did not. Rest In Peace my friend . Jeff Shuck

  3. Wayne will be missed. We have missed him being out of the Grand Prairie Genealogical Society but know that he will now live on through the memories of us all and through his own family research. God Bless you all. Pamela Knight (Pres.GPGS).

  4. Very sorry to learn of the passing of Wayne. Although it has been many years, I fondly remember his kindness and knowledge during my membership in DFWAE. Prayers

  5. It was a pleasure working with Wayne when he served as director of the Texas Lathing and Plastering Contractors Association. We will miss him as a colleague and friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Peggy.

  6. Wayne was a good man and friend of many years. I have many great memories of Wayne. He did a lot for Texas Tech . He will be missed. Prayers.

  7. Wayne was a great friend to my dad, Bob Poteet, and after his death to me. I remember listening to phone conversations between the two. They bounced ideas around and confided in each other. After all, they were both Red Raiders! Such an encourager! Always a supporter of the Association industry. I am quite sure that he recruited more members to the DFWAE than any other. The Wayne James Award will live on in the hearts of those that remember and loved him in the association world. I learned a lot from him and he will be so missed!
    Kandi Poteet
