He was a kind and generous man, and a great friend to all who knew him.  James (Mr. Jim) knew and loved the Lord.  He was preceded in death by his wife Alice Stires (Mrs. Dinky) and son Cecil Tackett.

He is survived by his children, Toni Thompson and husband Randy; James Stires and wife Cindy, John Stires and wife Ann, Lovell Tackett and wife Laurie, Michael Breeland and wife Jerri, Vern Breeland and wife Melissa; brother, Wesley Stires; and several nieces and nephews.
