The Rev. James Floyd Jackson, 84, died Tuesday, Sept. 13, 2005. He was born in Harrisonville, Ark. May 23, 1921.

He married Jannie Irene Lawson Feb. 13, 1941 and fathered two children, Brenda Kay Carmody, of Iowa City, Iowa, and James C. Jackson, of Centerview, Mo.

James was the son of Claude Jackson and Nellie Capotaloa Stuart and had seven brothers and sisters: Milton, Claude, Sadie, Ethyl, Velma, Marie and Ruth.

Survivors include one sister, Marie Watson and her husband Seyburn, of Checotah; two children Brenda Kay Carmody and her husband David, of Iowa City, Iowa, and James C. Jackson and wife Joyce, of Centerview, Mo.; four grandchildren Teresa Critz and her husband Brian, of Broken Arrow, Jimmy Don Jackson and wife Susie, of Broken Arrow, David Allen Jackson, of San Diego, Calif., and Karen Christine Dunaway and husband David, of Charlotte, N.C.; eight great-grandchildren Michael Critz, James, Teagan, and Ryan Jackson, Connor, Logan, McKay and Jackson Dunaway.

James was paster of the Evangelistic Tabernacle, located on 531 N. Ridgeway in Sapulpa, until poor health kept him from actively ministering the church. James was a member of the church since it conception in the 1950s more than five decades ago.

James and his identical twin Milton were Oklahoma oil men and ministers of the Gospel. They held revivals all over Oklahoma in such places as Sapulpa, Tulsa, Bristow, Jenks, Bixby, Sand Springs, Glenpool, Oklahoma City, Drumright, Okmulgee and numerous others. They were responsible for saving the souls of many people which perhaps may have reached into the thousands.

James was a living testament of the word of God. He once saved the life of a small boy in his neighborhood. While driving his car he and his granddaughter Teresa noticed a young boy who was choking to death. He stopped his car and was able to dislodge the obtrusion, thus saving the young boy's life. He loved his neighbors and they loved him.

James deeply loved his wife Jannie and after 60 years of marriage God took her home in 2001. He never overcame the tragedy.

He was known as a kind, gentle, loving man and will be sincerely missed by all who knew him.

His daughters have never witnessed a man with so much faith in God and never a man so ready to go to heaven to be with God. During his hard times his faith never faltered and he never complained. He did once ask during those last moments, "When am I going to get out of here?"

He is home now. God love him.

Funeral services for James have been set for 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 16, 2005 in the Smith Funeral Chapel with the Rev. Millard McGuire officiating. Interment will follow in the Sunrise Cemetery in Kellyville.

Serving as casketbearers will be Jimmy Don Jackson, David Allen Jackson, Michael Critz, Jerry Jackson, Edwin Lay and Joe Reed. Honorary bearers will be Seyburn Watson, Jimmy Dale Watson, Linda Reed, Evelyn Allen, Ed Willingham and the Rev. Ted Kelly.
