Antwania James

 Mr. Antwania Lonell James, the son of Samuel and the late Jacqueline Law James was born in Florence County on February 1,1965. He departed this life on September 27, 2022, at his home in Columbia, South Carolina. 

Antwania was educated in the public school system of Florence County, graduating from South Florence High School, Class of 1983. He went to pursue a few different careers in Los Angeles, California and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 

Antwania accepted Christ as his personal Lord and Savior at an early age. He definitely was a walking miracle and had a living testimony of the power of prayer and how God brought him through life’s many obstacles.. 

Antwania 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 in helping others. He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it which made him a great son, dad, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend. Antwania was a sports fanatic. His teams were Philadelphia in basketball and football. He could tell you anything you wanted to know about his teams and sports in general. 

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

Survivors include: his father, Samuel (Yvonne) James of Columbia, South Carolina; two daughters, Brittney Gregg of Columbia, South Carolina and Sierra Wilson of Atlanta, Georgia; one son, Antwania James, Jr.; one sister, Arena James of Charlotte, North Carolina and one brother, Manuel (Krizza) Ferrill of Biloxi, Mississippi; two grandchildren, Ayriss and Gervais Hipp; five nieces, Lashonda Kelly, Jakayla Carr, Natalia Soumare, Lori Ann, and Kaylee Ferrill; one nephew, Jermaine Carr, II. He is also survived by two aunts, Rosa Merriman and Shirley Law; one uncle, Ken Merriman; and a host of other relatives and friends.

The family will recieve friends on Monday, October 3, 2022 at 1314 E. Pine Street, Florence from 4pm-8pm and on Tuesday, October 4, 2022 immediately after service at the repast.

Sending sincere condolences and prayers to the family. May God give you strength, comfort, and peace in your time of sorrow. I am so thankful I got to see Twan at his aunt Bettye's funeral. We grew up together. Be blessed.
