Obituary written and submitted by family:

DON FRED JAMES

Born.....May 5 1939...Whittier California Passed....May 19 2018...Murrieta California

Don proudly served in the U.S. Navy..traveling to South America, Cuba, Northern Europe and the East Coast of the United States. He was a 30-year dedicated law enforcement officer who loved his career. He earned his Master's Degree from USC. Don was a certified scuba diver...loved the sea and enjoyed his sailboats as well as traveling and cruising the world. He did volunteer work for his community and the Police and Fire Departments of Murrieta and patriotic events.

Don is survived by his wife of 51 years, son Kevin, son Tom, granddaughter Ashley and daughter-in-law Nicole.
He was extremely proud of his two sons and beautiful granddaughter.

He was my ROCK, best friend and love of my life for the past 52 years. The most wonderful husband, father and grandfather...very kind, caring and generous.

His other interests were daily exercise, Rottweilers, Mexican food and keeping in touch with friends online and social activities.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to Alzheimer's.org and/or Hospice of the Valleys...to honor Don James.

Don will be in our hearts forever....and we will cherish the wonderful life we had together.

REST IN PEACE.....TIL WE MEET AGAIN......LOVE YOU
