James, Franklin Robert

September 17, 1965 – May 28, 2017
Age 51 of St. Paul suddenly and expectantly passed away at the family cabin on May 28, 2017. Preceded in death by his father, Robert Harvey James. He was a loving father and devoted husband. His children Bryanna (25), Jesse (21), Tyler (17) and Ashley (9); wife (Jodi); sister (Vickie) and mother (Geraldine) will miss him dearly. He was blessed to have so many friends from work and extended family that have provided support over the years. He adored his many nephews and nieces and found joy in the simple moments like playing Matchbox cars under the trees or just “goofing” off. He enjoyed the peace found at that cabin and all the aspects of being up north. If there can be a right place, he was there.
