Mr. Pursley was born June 10, 1980 in Sweetwater. He initially moved to San Angelo in 1994, residing in San Antonio for a few years before returning to San Angelo in 2001. James was a 1997 graduate of Central High School where he thrived doing body work in auto shop. He formerly worked at H&P Drilling for many years primarily as a derrickman, All-American Chevy, Producers Service Corp., and most recently for U.S. Wells Service. He also worked as a chef for various restaurants. He is remembered for being a handyman, being mechanically inclined and always willing to work on cars, and being a master on the barbecue grill. He loved being with family and was regarded by those who knew him as a loving and caring person. James was proud to be a father to two U.S. Marines and a daughter who adored him and enjoyed spending time at his side. He was known for his generosity, dropping whatever he was doing to help his family and friends whenever there was a need. Whenever he hugged you, he made you feel loved and protected.
