James retired as a lineman for Verizon. He was a dedicated employee who served the public as he would be served. If your phone went out of order all you had to do was run Cookie down and he would stop what he was doing and come help you out. The “company” probably didn’t know that. He loved cattle, horses and team penning. He loved people especially his family. His family was his world. To know Cookie Capehart was to love him.
