Mr. Angelo Jermaine James, the son of Samuel and the late Jacqueline Law James was born in Florence County on August 20,1970.  He departed this life on May 6, 2022, at Lexington Medical Center in West Columbia, South Carolina.

Angelo was educated in the public school system of Florence County, graduating from South Florence High School, Class of 1988. He went to pursue an Associate in Management and an Associate in Marketing in 2014, from Florence Darlington Technical College.

Angelo was a faithful member of Majority Baptist Church, where he accepted Christ as his personal Lord and Savior. He definitely proved to be an asset to the church by mentoring young men and tutoring children in the after-school program.

Angelo had an infectious smile.  Wherever he was, he would give a smile that lit up a room.  He was a dedicated, loyal family member and friend. He took great pleasure visiting with the sick and shut in which made him an awesome son, dad, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend. 

Angelo was a Military Veteran, where he served 3.5 years in the United States Army as a Private First Class in Infantry from January 1990 until 1993 due to a medical discharge.

Angelo was preceded in by his mother, Jacqueline Law James; maternal grandparents, Joseph and Curley Law; paternal grandparents, Columbus and Annie Mae Cusack; two uncles, Walter Law and Joseph Law; three aunts, Delores Reyes, Bettye Hennigan, and Lena Mae Law.

Survivors include: his father, Samuel (Yvonne) James of Columbia, South Carolina; one daughter, Lashonda Kelly of Florence, South Carolina; two brothers, Antwania James of Columbia, South Carolina and Manuel (Krizza) Ferrill of Biloxi, Mississippi; one sister, Arena James of Columbia, South Carolina; six grandchildren, Chamarihanna, Kayden, Sevren, Ayden, Alashia, and Donasia all of Florence, South Carolina; six nieces, Brttney Hipp, Sierra Wilson, Jakayla Carr, Natalia Soumare, Lori Ann, and Kaylee Ferrill; two nephews, Antwania James, Jr., and Jermaine Carr II. He is also survived by two aunts, Rosa (Ken) Merriman and Shirley Law; one uncle, Joseph Reyes; and a host of other relatives and friends.

Family will receive friends at the home of his sister Rena James, 1331 Green Turf Lane, Elgin, SC 29045 Monday, May 9, 2022 through Wednesday,  May 11, 2022 from 5-8 PM.  Please wear a mask.

Angelo was a bright light. He loved life and made everyone in his presence important. We prayed for his healing and God answered.
