Saturday, January 13th, 2018

James Stanley Skaggs was born on June 28, 1963. He peacefully departed this life on January 13, 2018. James was truly a joy to be around. He possessed an infectious smile and personality that lit up any atmosphere he was in and around. One of his popular sayings was “You so sweet.” His presence will truly be missed, as he was a blessing to those he came into contact with. He was preceded in death by his father, Lee F. Skaggs. He leaves to cherish his memories his mother: Eula M. Skaggs; his siblings: Lee F. Skaggs, Jr., Linda (Jones) Mynatt and Michael A. Skaggs; nieces and nephews: Kristin S.

Wade; one uncle: Eugene Jones; and a host of other relatives and friends. Special thanks to Howard & Darlene Pegues, Mrs. Carla Payne, Smoky Mountain Hospice and Compassionate Care for all of their love, support and services.
