The son of the late James Luther Vaughn and the late Jewell (Chapman) Vaughn, he was born in Glasgow on February 12th, 1949.

James loved golf. He loved to play courses locally, but also traveled out of state to play. Like most golfers, James always claimed a hole in one even though there was nobody there to witness it. One of his favorite golf stories to tell was the time that his daughter in law hit him in the arm with the ball and then it rolled in the hole. He loved the Lord, his family, and his church.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by three sons, Tony Vaughn, Bobby Vaughn, and Randy Vaughn; one brother, Michael Vaughn; two sisters, Brenda Vaughn and Beatrice Hill.

  7. Brother James was such a dear man! I can remember so many sundays he would come into church, and it was evident that he didn’t feel well; yet he would put forth the effort to stand up and thank God for being so good to him! I loved to bear him sing and testify! He put us all to shame—none of our complaints and excuses hold a candle to his, yet he still did all he could to praise the Lord while he could.
    One of my favorite memories of brother James:
    When I was pregnant, every time he’d see me, he’d say “man, you’re getting fat!” And he was the only human being on earth that could get by with saying that to a pregnant lady! He always made me laugh, and he is already sorely missed!
