Milton George James was born in Chicago, Illinois on January 15, 1946. He passed away on March 17, 2021 in Mesa, Arizona where he has resided since he retired in 2001.  He was married several times and has five children and nine grandchildren.  He loved each and everyone of them with all his heart and soul.

He began his law career in Chicago as a public defender after graduating from Vermont Law School.  Later in his career, he was an arbitrator judge for the State of Illinois.  Soon after retirement he moved to Arizona, where he spent the last 20 years of being close to almost all of his family as most of them lived in Arizona, too.

He is survived by his wife Sharon, his three sons George, Marc and Don, his two daughters, Kim and Leandra, and his nine grandchildren Brenna, Hailey, Kellen, Taylor, Sommer, Randy, Tyler, Jack and Holly.

Our father always taught us to work hard for what we wanted in life.  He always preached to us about earning respect and how to keep it.  He always told us to lend a hand and expect nothing in return, be there for family and friends, no matter what.  Our father was well respected in his field and performed his duties with honor and dignity.  He has left a hole in our hearts, but we know that he would want us to stay strong, be there for each other and fill the hole with many memories we shared with him, both as a family and as individuals.  Dad and Grandpa, you will be missed but never forgotten.  Until we all meet again.  We love you with all our heart and souls.

Funeral Services are scheduled for Tuesday, March 23, 2021 at Mountain View Funeral Home and Cemetery with Visitation beginning at 1:00PM and Service beginning at 2:00PM. 7900 E Main Street, Mesa, Arizona.

Following funeral services, a Celebration of Life will be held at Scratch Bar & Grill at Augusta Ranch Golf Course beginning at 4:00PM. 2401 S Lansing, Mesa, Arizona.

    Wishing you all strength and peace in your heart during this this very difficult time. I worked with Judge Milton James at the State of Illinois Building in Chicago. Judge Milton had integrity and was respected by his peers. Judge Milton was truly a good person and a lot of fun to be around. My thoughts and prayers are with you. All the love, Barbara
