Wilson - Funeral Services for Mr. James "Jim" Douglas Slawson , 62, of Healdton are scheduled for 2:00 PM Wed. June 26, 2019 at the Alexander Gray Funeral Home Chapel in Wilson with Rev. Jason Williams officiating. Interment will follow at Hewitt Cemetery of Wilson. Everyone is encouraged to ride their motorcycle to pay tribute to James for his last ride to the cemetery.

James was born on October 24, 1956 at Fresno, CA to the late Mr. Roy James Slawson and Mrs. Mona Katherine (Jordan) Slawson. He departed this life on Thursday June 20, 2019 at his home in Healdton.

James loved building hot rods and motorcycles. He had a weakness for loud pipes and chrome. His creations were always a masterpiece that everyone cherished. Currently, James was employed as a mechanic for NGL Energy of Woodward. Since the passing of his wife Nina on June 14, 2017, James continued to live at Woodward, moving to Healdton just recently to be with his family.

In addition to his wife also preceding him in death was his parents and son in law, Jason Bethea.
