James Branch was born June 16, 1957 in Pine Bluff, Arkansas to Molly and Charles Branch. He lived in many places throughout his life, Arkansas, California, and finally settled in Idaho last year. He was married to Karen Davison Branch for 39 years. Together they had two sons Wesley and Kyle, and five grandchildren Audrey, Kylie, Arrow, Kaylie, and Rosie.

James was an avid reader and collector of a variety of things. His collections consisted of model trains, toy cars, Christmas Villages, John Grishamn Novels and anything Titanic. He enjoyed watching football and cheering on the New Orlean Saints.

His family will fondly remember how he took special care of family recipes like his Pecan Pie and his Chicken Spaghetti. His grandchildren loved "Grandpa's Pancakes."

James worked for the Gas Company for over 20 years then went into Truck Driving for several years after. He overcame countless health issues, but kept his faith strong and held on to his belief in Jesus all his life. 

James was a character, he could talk for hours and never take a breath. He would never run out of stories to tell to family or strangers alike. James went to the Lord on February 3rd, 2022 with family by his side. He said he looked forward to meeting his Mother Molly again at Heaven's Gates.
