James Floyd Stutts

August 18, 1934 — September 10, 2023

Bossier City, Louisiana - Joyfully and sadly, James Floyd Stutts was reunited with his best friend and wife of 60 years, Edith Naomi O’Bannon Stutts on Sunday, September 10, 2023. She has taken his hand and ushered him into heaven where they are at peace and not alone anymore. A visitation was held on September 13, 2023 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at White’s Funeral Home in Mineral Wells, Texas. Graveside Services were held on September 14, 2023 at Woodland Park Cemetery in Mineral Wells, Texas. Services were officiated by Gaylon Cremeen. Honoring James as pallbearers were nephews, Tony Colwell, Nathan Colwell, grandsons, Lee Stutts, Jerry Strain, Jason Perez and Charles Kuhn. James was born in Hemphill, Texas on August 18, 1934, to Lillian Huffman Stutts and Marvin Stutts. James was a military veteran and after serving in the United States Army during the Korean War, he made his home in Mineral Wells, Texas. Once discharged from the Army (Fort Wolters Base in Mineral Wells, Texas), he decided to make his home there after growing up in Shreveport, Louisiana. He went to work locally at Tex-Vit which is now Can-Tex, and remained there until 1978 when he decided he wanted a change in his career. He moved to Bossier City, Louisiana to seek a future in the oil and gas industry where he remained until his retirement. James was an outdoor person and loved to fish, hunt and just about anything outdoors, even if that just meant sitting on the patio and watching the birds. He was a fan of baseball, mostly the Texas Rangers. James was an avid bowler, having achieved the pinnacle of the sport by bowling his first and only perfect game of 300 at the age of 78, which is some 50 plus years from when he began. He was a husband, father and provider for his family, never putting himself first. If he had to work two jobs to make ends meet, that is what he did. Everyone that met him said “he was a good man”. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends. James was preceded in death by his parents; and the love of his life, Edith, who passed away in 2017; two brothers, Roy Stutts, and Travis Stutts; and one sister, Helen Randall. James is survived by a son, Randy Stutts; four grandchildren, Lee Stutts, Aaron Stutts, Hamra Stutts, and Natalie Stutts; two sister, Shirley Lee, and Doris Strong; along with numerous nieces and nephews.
