James “Lefty” Monroe Spears

February 05, 1934 – March 18, 2019

James “Lefty” Spears, 85, a resident of Osyka, MS., passed away on March 18, 2019 closely surrounded by his family.

Visitation will be Monday March 25, 2019 from 10:00 AM until services at 12:00 PM at Hartman Jones Funeral Home. Rev. Milton Kliesh will officiate and burial will be in Osyka Cemetery

Mr. Spears was born on February 5, 1934 in Harahan, LA. He was the son of June B. Spears and Nova Gill Spears Ott

James and Sue were married for 64 years and raised their family in Osyka. James was a retired boilermaker who earned the nickname “Lefty” early in life.  In his younger years he enjoyed pool, baseball, fishing, cards, and anything that involved his family. James shared a part of his heart with many and was respected and admired by everyone who had the privilege of knowing him. James was known as “Papa” by his grandchildren and great grandchildren and “Uncle” by so many family members and friends. He was a soft-spoken man who always had time to lend a helping hand, words of wisdom, or a stern voice when necessary. His family will always treasure his card tricks, quizzing of state capitals, and the standard of perfection that he held everything up to in his life.

He is preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Sue K. Spears; a brother, June A. Spears and a son in law, Biddy Currier.

He is survived by one son, Jamie P. Spears of Kentwood, LA; two daughters, Beverly Currier of Osyka and Suzy Simmons (David) of Hammond, LA; four grandchildren, Rene’ Carloss, Jennifer Simmons, Erin Simmons Alexander and Brooke Currier; five great grandchildren, Logan James Yawn, Payton Yawn, Monroe Alexander, Spears Alexander and Otis Simmons Alexander
