At age 17 years he worked as a fish inspector stationed at George's Island, then for 16 years as a manager of The Sandy Bar Hotel in Riverton where he met his wife Mary. Also during this time they worked as a team to build their (farm) cattle operation. He loved to take good care of his animals and had a very strong work ethic his entire life. James was an avid gardener and enjoyed growing a variety of vegetables. Besides gardening, his main hobby was collecting antiques, smoking fish and different meats. He liked to share and give away his fresh garden vegetables. James was very generous and hospitable to visitors.
