James Otha Sturgis III was born January 31, 1981, in Mt. Holly, N.J. He went home to be with the Lord suddenly in the early morning of March 14, 2017. In 1989, he moved to Indiana along with his beloved sister, Jessica, where he continued to live until being called up to heaven.

His smile would uplift the whole room, and he was always finding new ways to make people laugh. James was truly one of a kind, and built a legacy that will last forever.
