James loved life and had a wonderful future ahead of him. He was intelligent, handsome, caring, a pain in the neck at times but we loved him more than words can say.
James devastatingly passed away on the 18th April 2018. He was only 14 years old. James had an undiagnosed heart condition called Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. If we had known about it, it was treatable and he would still be here today. James had no previous symptoms, there was nothing he couldn’t do. He played and was brilliant at crown green bowling, football, rugby, to name a few.
James was fit and well that Wednesday morning. It was just a normal day until he collapsed on his way to school and suffered a cardiac arrest.
Our lives will never be the same without him. James had a huge presence and personality that will be missed forever and always. He has left behind heartbroken parents, four younger brothers, grandparents, aunties, uncles, cousins and many friends.
James we love you so much. You will never be forgotten. Forever in our thoughts and hearts you will stay.
Louise and Michael
