James was a decorated World War II veteran, United States Army Combat Infantry Platoon Sergeant Co. “A” 163rd Inf., 41st Div. He served forty-two months in the South Pacific, from January 1942 until August 1945. He spent time in Australia, New Guinea, and the Philippines. His decorations include the Silver Star, Bronze Star, and two Purple Hearts.

His acting career spanned nearly six decades, and included theater, film, and television. First appearing on stage in “The Time of Your Life,” he would go on to perform in several Broadway shows, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama “All The Way Home.”

James most famous role came on film. He appeared in two James Bond films opposite Roger Moore: “Live and Let Die” (1973) and “The Man with the Golden Gun” (1974). He portrayed the crowing Louisiana sheriff, J.W. Pepper. James would play similar Southern lawman in numerous other roles during his career, including “Silver Streak” and “Superman II”

Among his other film credits included “Cool Hand Luke,” “Eight Men Out” and “The Bonfire of the Vanities.”

James appeared on 13 episodes of the sitcom Lewis & Clark in 1981–1982. Other television credits include the miniseries Captains and the Kings (1976), and two episodes of The A-Team as murderous prison warden Beale in the first-season episode “Pros and Cons” (1983), and as corrupt Sheriff Jake Dawson in the second season’s “The White Ballot” (1983). In 1996, he played the role of “Red Kilgreen” on the ABC daytime drama series, All My Children. James also played the train passenger “Wilkes” on the Gunsmoke episode “Snow Train” (1970).

He also appeared as Sheriff Lester Crabb, a temporary one-off replacement for regular Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane (James Best) in the second season Dukes of Hazzard episode “Treasure of Hazzard” (1980).

Take a look!

James enjoyed celebrating holidays with his wife Laurie. He is survived by his sisters, Cicely and Beverley; his five children, Cory, Winkie, Hardy, Lynn, and Mary; fourteen grandchildren; and four great grandchildren.

His daughter says that a celebration of her father’s life will be held in Gladstone in August, but there are no other plans so far. She said some of his ashes will likely be spread in the Clackamas River in Oregon, in which he swam as a boy, and in New York Harbor, where some of his wife’s ashes were spread.

Rest in peace brother. Thank you for your service and for the wonderful memories…
