He was joyfully met in Heaven by his parents; his beloved wife, Evalyn; his brothers, Perry Bruce Crouch and Taylor Crouch, and his sister, Charlotte Crouch Ward. James was a 1942 graduate of Wills Point High School and proudly served in the U.S. Army from 1943 to 1946. He began his training in Ft. Lewis, Washington and Camp Bowie, Texas. He served as a message center courier for the 65th Signal Battalion during WWII in England, France, Germany, and Austria. Later, he served 10 months in Germany in the Army of Occupation. Upon his discharge, he met Evalyn Henderson at a church service at First Baptist Terrell, and he knew that very day he was going to marry that beautiful young lady. James and Evalyn married on October 24, 1947. He attended Texas Military College in Terrell before being employed as a salesman for six years for the Curtiss Candy Company. James was then employed as an agent for the National Life and Accident Insurance Company for 26 years where he worked hard and qualified for 14 leadership trips.
