On March 19, 2017, our beloved James E. David, Jr. transitioned from his earthly home to his eternal home. He was born in Brooklyn, New York to Edna and James David, Sr. James joined the United States Army shortly after receiving his high school diploma. He was selected to attend the Military Academy at West Point where he graduated as an Army Officer, Class of 1981. While in the Army, James flew helicopters. James was an avid motorcycle rider and a music lover. He was also a huge fan of Star Trek, SCI-FI, and action movies. James has a mean sweet tooth, from his love for Entenmann’s chocolate doughnuts, and Hostess cakes. Most of all, James loved his family and friends, and would do anything he could for them. James was preceded in death by his mother, Edna, and sister, Celeste. James is survived by a wife, Regina, two daughters, Jennifer and Shanae; grandchildren; his father, James, Sr.; brother, Kenneth; uncle, Sidney; aunts, and a host of cousins, other relatives and friends.

Linda To the Family. Losing a love one in death is a trying time for all. I just want to give the family some comfort and hope from God's word, which gives the assurance that one day we will see our dear love ones again. ACTS 24:15 And I have a hope toward God, which hope these(men) themselves also entertain, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteuos and the unrighteous. Certainly while we await for these wonderful promise, I hope the family truly find comfort knowing this wonderful hope from Gods word.

The Edmonds Family We send you our deepest sympathy. Words cannot console when we have lost someone we love in death. The Bible provides the finest basis for encouragement. 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 calls God "the God of all Comfort." Just imagine, being comforted by a God who knows what we need and gives it to us to bring us joy and to cope. I hope this thought brings you and your family some comfort.
