James was born in Richmond, California on July 9, 1943 and later called Shoreacres, Texas home where he lived for over 30 years.

In his free time, he enjoyed building custom fishing rods for himself and for others.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Lillian Hurd and his brother Fred Hurd. He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Ronna Hurd, his son Jason & wife Elise Hurd, and grandchildren Selah, Alexa, Haylee, Ariyanna, and Levi.
