James O. Cantrell

James O. Cantrell, age 80, of Plum Branch, S. C., formerly of Warrenville, S. C., loving husband of Peggy Addy Cantrell and son of the late James E.

He was born in Heflin, Alabama but has spent most of his life in South Carolina. He was a member of St. James Lutheran Church in Graniteville, S.C.

He shall be greatly missed by his family and loved ones, but death is not the end. He has just made that great transition to his new Heavenly Home, where all is peace and joy in a land of endless tomorrows.

Sure was sorry to here about this but Im really glad hes out of his pain. James was a very close friend of mine. He taught me many things, definitely how to fish, and did a lot of things for me. You didnt have to ask him twice to do things. I am sure going to miss the conversations he and I always had (about anything). He could cook up the best fried fish I ever had in my life and a lot of other things, sure gonna miss that, wish I had been smart enough for him to teach me how to cook but I wasnt. Dont worry old buddy I'll help Peggy out with anything she needs and I'll also help with Junior if he will let me! The world lost a very good person and I lost a very good friend. RIP old Buddy!!
