  3. Billy and Gail Booth Says:

    James Gammons was a remarkable man whose legacy will be cherished by all those who knew him. As his church pastor for the last year, I was appreciative of his dedication and faithfulness to our church. Until his recent illness and and the advent of COVID-19 restrictions, Bro. James could be found in his church pew on Sunday mornings, setting an example of faithful church attendance. Furthermore, his concern for others often resulted in his inviting others to church, even going to the point of personally bringing them to church if transportation was unavailable for them. He earned his living the hard way: he worked for it. He loved God, church, family, and friends and would readily help those in need. I learned that he was an expert deer hunter and fisherman because he shared the results of his expertise with me on more than one occasion. (Talk about some delicious meat!) We miss him, but we know that we shall see him again since he was and is a fellow believer in Christ, having trust Christ for personal salvation. May God’s Word and His Holy Spirit (the “Comforter”) provide strength, comfort, and assurance to his family and friends.
