James Artis was a wonderful son, brother, and uncle. Although he never had children of his own, he was very involved with the upbringing of his nieces and nephews. He was one of the strong links in our village that help keep the family grounded. Anyone who knew James Artis, knew how kind hearted and caring of a man he was. After retiring from farming, he moved into a retirement facility for ten years until his health started to fail. He lived the last years of his life at Green Leaf Care Facility.
He was preceded in death by brothers Fred McLean, Sr., Tom McLean, Jesse Lee McLean, Waddell McLean, David McLean, and Robert McLean; sisters Margaret King, Esther McLean, and Estelle Campbell.
Those left to cherish his memories are: two sisters, Minnie Mitchell of Bunnlevel, NC and Clara McNeill of Fayetteville, NC; three brothers, Charles McLean of Lillington, NC, Conrad McLean of Vass, NC and Elroy McLean of Fayetteville, NC.
