Age 61 of New Hope, passed away peacefully on November 15, 2019 into the glorious world of Jesus. James was born July 21, 1958 in Mpls. Mn. He graduated in 1977 from Anoka HS. He went on to school for Criminal Justice and worked for Anoka County Sheriff’s office. Much of his life included security work and bounty hunting.

He is survived by his sisters LaVonne Blesi (Lawrence) Irene Sothman (Dale) Gloria Gwinner (Terry) Jean Godfrey (Phil). Preceded in death by parents Joseph and Lois Hall. The family would like to thank Northridge Care Center and Brookdale Hospice for his end of life care. A special thank you to Joelle for attending to his final days with care and compassion.
