James Blackham, age 43, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, April 16, 2019, at Memorial Hospital in Gulfport.
He was born March 4, 1975 in Shreveport to Sterling and Linda Blackham. James graduated from Harrison Central High School in 1993. He worked as an Operations Specialist for Coca Cola Bottling Company, displaying his work ethic and will to succeed.
James truly lived life to the fullest and will be best remembered by riding and racing dirt bikes, his love for his White Lightning, and most importantly, his creative slang. There was no stranger to James. He had an uncanny ability to strike up a conversation with just about anyone and would be there to help them at the drop of a hat. He knew all of the best places to eat, what night to eat at certain places, and what the specials would be. James touched people in a positive way and made many laugh with his unique sense of humor.
He is survived by his mother, Linda Blackham; his sister, Terri Williams (Max); his nephew, Robby Lloyd; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Family, friends, and others whose lives James touched are invited to RIEMANN FAMILY FUNERAL HOME, 274 Beauvoir Road, Biloxi, from 1:00 PM until 3:00 PM, on Friday, April 19, 2019, to celebrate the life of James.
