He also worked for the Mass. Department of Mental Health as a caregiver for patients in various group homes. For the last 10 years, James has been employed as an outreach worker and van driver by the Council on Aging.

He was an avid coin collector, and loved horse racing and going to the Sarasota Racetrack every August to enjoy the horses. He loved watching football and baseball and attending many games.
