James was born in Ladonia, Texas on September 6, 1957 to Thomas and Judy “James” Reel. They preceded him in death as well as a niece, Jamie Reel. He married Sue Wever on October 7, 1994 in Ladonia, Texas. He was a farmer and rancher in the community and a member of the Texas Cattleman’s Association.  James was known for being perpetually happy.  He had a laugh that was completely infectious to all who surrounded him.  He was a living example of grace, sacrifice, and courage.  He loved his work and his cowboy companions.  “He loved the wide-open spaces the best.  He looked east every morning, every evening he looked west.  He loved his cowboyin’ ways more than anyone knew.  Cowboy from Catarina it’s open spaces for you.”  The void he leaves is vast, but the love he left behind is infinite. 

Survivors include his wife, Sue Reel; daughter, Analisa Blaine and husband, John, of Ladonia, Texas; daughter, Suzanne George of Greenville, Texas; son, L. T. Worley of Ravenna Texas; 9 Grandchildren: Mandi Watkins, Blayze Mabry, Alex Cruz, Lacey Worley, Skyler Worley, Cheyanne Worley, Laramie Worley, James Luke Blaine and Emily Sue Blaine; 2 Great Grandchildren; 2 Brothers: Charlie Reel and wife, Janna, of Paris, Texas and Carl Reel and wife, Lisa, of Cooper, Texas; 4 nieces, and many great nieces and nephews.
