On Oct. 19, 2005 the Angels came to claim our friend James Rodney Matthews.

A force to be reckoned with, a voice to pierce the crowd, a laugh, a smile to live on forever in the memories, and hearts of all those who loved him. With saddened hearts we say goodnight until we meet again.

James will be lovingly remembered by his Grandpa & Grandma Hazzard, his father Rob Hazzard, his brothers, DW, Justin Kern, Mike Froese, Miller, Neuf, Barry Huth as well as Jessica Crane, Natalie Froese, Nikki, Penny Robinson, all his extended family and friends.

Funeral Services for James will be held on Monday, October 31 at 1:00 pm from the Chapel of Woodlawn Funeral Home, 2310 Clearbrook Rd.

Cremation to follow.

Your condolences will be approved within one business day. You will need a valid Facebook account. Please email us if you have any questions.
