James Paul Latham, 71, of Canyon, Texas passed away on September 14, 2021.
James was born on November 29, 1949 at Northwest Texas Hospital to James Melton Latham and Elizabeth Roberta Elrod Latham.
He was a very kind and gentle man. He was quiet but he was funny. He always had his own vocabulary if he couldn’t remember the correct word. He had a special place in his heart for his family and friends. He enjoyed fishing, gambling (even if he lost), and playing cards. He enjoyed his time relaxing with his dogs and binge watching his current Netflix series.
On March 15, 2008, James married the love of his life, Tina Marshell Sanchez in Amarillo, Texas and blended their two families. James and Tina met more than 35 years ago and finally fate brought them together. They enjoyed their time together exploring different lakes, and spending time in Red River, New Mexico each year.
He was preceded in death by his father, James M. and wife Shirley Latham; his mother, Elizabeth and husband Hervey Vendrick; his brother, Tommy Latham; his uncle, Lloyd Latham, and a first cousin, Danny Latham.
James is survived by his wife, Tina Latham; two step-daughters and their spouses; two granddaughters; a sister, Gloria Gibson and husband Robert; nephews Chris Toney, Scott Latham and wife, Crystal, and Tom Latham; niece, Dolly Black and family.
