James maines obituary |He was 58 years old when he passed away on September 8th of this year. Right now, no services have been rendered. Messages and memories can be left in our online guest book. Bluff City was where James spent the majority of his life. As a lifelong Braves fan, I can’t help but be a little biased.
He didn’t miss a single game that was broadcast on television because of his dedication. To him, restoring ancient automobiles and trucks was a hobby, as well as a way to express his love for his home and land.
There were four members of James’ family who died before him: his parents (Ferd and Leota Maines Webster); a sister (Bernice Howell); and two brothers (Charles and Doc Maines).
Betty Woods Maines, his 66-year-old wife; one son, James Douglas (Doug) Maines; two grandsons, James Douglas Maines II and wife Lisa, and Dalton Maines; and two great-grandchildren, Conner and Keegan Maines, both of Bluff City.
Caleb and Louise Howard, of Lebanon, Virginia; one sister and her husband Joe of Piney Flats, Tenn.; and a brother-in-law and sister-in-law
