James Alexander Crowfeather Roden passed away January 22, 2004, after a brief courageous battle with cancer.

James was a computer programmer in Dallas, Texas. He leaves behind to all those who loved him many pictures - reminders of his enormous talent to capture life in all its beauty. As he interpreted, A look at the world by a free spirit with a camera. He kept his camera by his side at all times. On his last visit to the hospital in Talihina when he was so weak, he grabbed his camera before he left, always ready to photograph what his eyes could not resist saving.

He lived in Clayton, Oklahoma. Many days were spent there enjoying the beauty and peacefulness of his land. He was also the founder of the KOOKS, Kiamichi Order of Kinder Souls, a society of free spirits. He was also an artist and writer. James was a wonderful son, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle and friend.

Survivors include his mother, Peggy Roebuck; daughter and son-in-law, Lori and Mike; granddaughters, Tiffany and Kristi; grandson, Mikey; great-granddaughter, Brookelynne; brothers, Ray, Bob and John; sisters, Peggy, Linda and Barbara, and many nieces and nephews.

We will miss him forever. His smile will always remain in our hearts.
