James was born on August 29th, 1942 to Laura Monti & Joseph Benedetti. He graduated from Austin High School in 1960 & went on to receive a Bachelors Degree from Devry Technical College. We thank him for his service in the US Army from 1965-1971 where he earned the Marksmen award. He married the love of his life, Ramay Fox in 1974 and went on to have 4 beautiful children, Christina, Laura, Darlene & Jimmy.

He is preceded in death by his mother, Laura, his father, Joseph, and his son, Jimmy, who we know in our hearts were there to greet him with open arms.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 47 years, Ramay; children Christina & son-in-law Jeffery, Laura & son-in-law Eric, Darlene & son-in-law Bryan; grandkids Aiden 10, Ataliya 8, Austin 8, Machiavelli 5, Finnegan 5, and Avery 3. He was the Patriarch and very much the soul of our family. He loved each and every one of us to his core. James was an amazing man, husband and father. He always welcomed us with a smile, we shared many laughs as he had an outstanding sense of humor. James was loved and adored by his family and is already missed beyond measure. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Killeen Animal Shelter located at 3118 Commerce Drive, Killeen, TX 76543, where Jim and Ramay adopted their dog, Dakota and cat, Magnum who Jim so dearly loved.
