James Van Order, 70, of Sweet Home passed away Friday. He was born in Illinois to John Robert and Bonita Ester (Diehl) Van Order.

James lived in Oxnard, California and Michigan, Illinois, and Oregon. He moved here 30 years ago with his mother. James was a painting contractor.

He loved fishing and hunting and farming livestock. He enjoyed taking care of his animals and property until sickness recently made that difficult. James also loved telling jokes and making handcrafted jewelry out of the rocks and minerals he found locally.

James is survived by: his son, Timothy Way; siblings, Sandy Levi, Verna Bridges, Walter Van Order, Tom Van Order, and Georgia Ann Norris; cousins, Corey (Brenda) Davis, Carlyn (Kelly) Featherly, and Betty Davis; and his dog, “Kilo.”

Private services were held.

Arrangements are under the direction of Sweet Home Funeral Chapel.
