Obituary of James Earl Drinkard

James E Drinkard was born on April 5, 1955 to parents Mary and Jacob Drinkard in Alabama. He graduated high school and soon after joined the Army. After serving in the United States Army, he was discharged to California.
James was married to his children’s mother. They were blessed with three children. They divorced sometime after. He worked for the Post Office and the Orange County Transit, where he eventually retired. James was married again to Yolanda. They moved to Las Vegas to start their new life.
James developed Covid December 17, 2020 and was hospitalized. He had been in and out of the hospital and skilled nursing facilities. He was a strong man and a fighter. On August 29, 2022, he departed the earth at 9:45 A.M. Our Heavenly Father called him home at ProCare Hospice of Nevada.  
James leaves to cherish his memory his wife Yolanda Drinkard, his sons Keith, Jason and Johnathan, his grandchildren, nieces and nephews, his brother Fred, sisters Ola and Dorothy, cousins, and friends.
May God Bless those who have proceeded in death: his mother, father, sisters,  brothers, and many more.
