Mr. William “Maurice” James was born September 21, 1986, in Savannah, Georgia to Dan James and Williemae Gordon. He departed this earthly life and transitioned into eternal rest on March 4, 2022.
Maurice was educated in the public schools of Liberty County. From a very young age, he developed a love for the outdoors.
