I don't know anything about James' adult life but I do remember him in school. James worked on his own level having most of his friends in groups that would later be called "geeks" or "nerds". He had a great passion for chess, as I recall. These guys were regularly bullied and even today I wish that I had been capable of defending them. We don't like to be reminded of our flaws as we grow older but some things must be said. He was my friend and even though he died quite some time ago, I mourn his passing.

James' dad told me James had been a pilot in the Air Force.

I had James in class and we began playing chess.  I think that he came in during lunch to play chess also.  I did not know about the "bullying." I had a year with James as one of my students and he was a very good person.  He would talk to me and that connection helped me a lot as a teacher.
