James was born on March 28, 1980, in Des Moines, Iowa, the son of Ernest and Iris (Walker) Roberts.

James enjoyed his kids, nieces and nephews and his family. He could always see the bright side to a dark situation. His hobbies included lifting weights and gambling. Everyone said he had a good heart and took care of his friends. Whatever he had, he would give you half. He just wanted to enjoy life.
