James London, Jr.
November 18, 1941 ~ November 1, 2023 (age 81) 81 Years Old
On Wednesday, November 1, 2023, the gates of heaven opened, and the angels of God descended to Richardson, Texas, to carry James London, Jr. to his final resting place.
James London, Jr. was born on November 18, 1941, to the late Henrietta Conley and James London, Sr. of Sicily Island, Louisiana. He was the 2nd of 7 children. James, more affectionately known to some as "Jim" and others as "Dick", was known for his “infectious smile and bounteous laugh”, and he was the nucleus of his family and friends. Everyone looked up to him and had the utmost respect.
After attending Southern University, he relocated to Dallas Texas, where he began his career as a dedicated salesman at IBM Corporation. After 30 years of dedicated service, he retired.
James was the proud owner of Jim’s Cycle Repair and London and Son’s Towing. Among many hobbies, he was a BMW and motorcycle enthusiast, which also included drag racing. He was one of the founding members of the African Bandits Motorcycle Club of South Dallas. Known as “Jungle Jim” by fellow members, he traveled across the country along with friends, exploring different states every year until he retired.
James married the love of his life, Debra Schexnayder in July of 1993. Together, they enjoyed traveling. The two remained blissfully united for 30 years until his transition.
James was preceded in death by his parents; his eldest sister, Annie Ruth Anderson of Los Angeles; his brothers, John Edward London and Eugene London; and his heart brothers and best friends, Henry “Clem” White and William "Bill" Wright.
James is survived by his best friend and loving wife, Debra London; his children - Kenneth London, Ronda London, Roderick London (Wendy), Derrick London, J’Dron London, Kevin Andre Owens (Monica), Delisa Proctor, Kellen Singleton, and Alyse Morrison (Tyron) - all of Texas; his grandchildren - Shadwick, William, Ebonye, Kendall, Ashley, Britteny, Justin, Ariele, Shonda, Kennedy, J’Dron Jr., Faith, Christian, Alaysia, Aiden, Derrick Jr., and Eric; a host of great-grandchildren; his siblings - Lorena Griffin (John) of Austin, Carol London of Phoenix, and Ronnie London (Jacqueline) of Nashville; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and dear friends.
