Patrick and Suzanne Medway onOur deepest sympathy to the family
Carole Lethbridge onI’m James’s older first cousin I was born in Maitland we grew up together from childhood to teenagers. I now live in Sydney. I was so fortunate to see James about 8 years ago in an airport in Korea; we had a great chat; we hadn’t seen each other for over twenty years. He was a great guy who loved life and I’m sure he appreciated the wonderful family he leaves behind.
