Obituary

Michael Wayne James, 55, of Boise City, OK, passed away on April 20, 2023 at Northwest Texas Hospital in Amarillo, TX.

Michael was born on April 29, 1967 to Joe & Michele James in Boise City, OK. After graduating from Boise City High School in 1985, he went on to study electrical technology at Oklahoma State University.

After college graduation, Michael made his way back to the Oklahoma panhandle where he explored many different vocations including reserve officer for Cimarron County Sheriffs Office after completing CLEET training in 1995 and serving as an EMT after receiving his certification from the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians.

Soon after returning, Michael met Sherry, and they wed in 1991, going on to have 3 children; Dagan, Branden, and Eric. He served as a deacon to the Boise City Christian Church and spent time involved in events surrounding his church family.

Michael constantly craved knowledge and would often wrangle you into hours of conversation about a subject he might be researching at that time. It was rare that you didn’t walk away from those conversations with an overwhelming amount of information whether it was useful to you or not. Through books, the internet, or his recent discovery of YouTube, Michael was always in search of the answers... to everything.

Michael was also a passionate hobbyist and could often be found tinkering with radios. He held an amateur HAM radio license and filled in as an examiner for those looking to get into the hobby as well. He got family involved and made many connections all over the world through HAM radio events. He enjoyed hanging with friends at the barn, printing trinkets on his 3-D printer, and tinkering with engines, electronics and his new corvette.

Anyone who knew Michael knew that he was strong-willed and fierce-loving to all of his family and friends. Michael was preceded in death by his parents and his grandparents. He is survived by his wife, Sherry James; his daughter Dagan and husband Dustin Cox of Red River, NM; his son Branden and wife Becky James and grandson, Camden of Boise City, OK; his son Eric James of Boise City, OK; and his sister, Gail and her husband Bobby Hunt of Cushing, OK and their three children, Dalton, Garrett, and Coda. He is also survived by many great-nieces, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins.

The family requests that all flowers and notes are sent to Henson-Novack Funeral Directors in Boise City, OK.

There will be a memorial service at Boise City Christian Church on Thursday April 27, 2023 at 2:00 PM.

Memorial contributions may be made to Boise City Christian Church, PO Box 846 , Boise City, OK 73933.
