James Earl McGuire

James Earl McGuire, age 81 of Haleyville passed from this world to his heavenly home on February 12, 2024 at Brookwood Medical Center after a brief illness.

 

James was a master electrician. His work can be seen in many places around Haleyville and surrounding areas. James started his own business in February 1979 and was able to pass that down to his son in 2022.

 

He attended Shiloh Missionary Baptist in Haleyville. James loved to fish on the Tennessee River and watch Westerns. He enjoyed anything antique, especially antique car shows. James always told everyone about his chihuahua, Chaci. You could often find them together on the recliner, sound asleep.
