Memorial services for Mr. James Curtis "Cisco" Carpenter, 54, of Allendale, were held at 6 p.m., Aug. 8, at the Heritage Funeral Home Chapel in Allendale, with the Reverend Jerry Seay, officiating.
On Sunday, Aug. 4, 2013, Mr. James Curtis "Cisco" Carpenter departed this life at his residence in Allendale.
Carpenter was born on June 21, 1959, in Glen Cove, N.Y., to Sarah J. Carpenter-Cisco. He is the oldest of six children. James's early childhood years were spent growing up in the home of his parents Elmer Bernard Cisco Sr., and Sarah J. Carpenter Cisco. Much of James pre-teen and teenage years were spent in Reform, Ala., with his grandparents the late Lewis and Vera Carpenter. He later returned to Long Beach, N.Y., to reside with his parents and siblings. James was educated in both the New York and Alabama School systems. As a young adult, James moved to Allendale, where he lived and was employed by his Uncle Roy C. Hammond working in the music distribution business. James was an industrious worker. He had a great appreciation for construction and painting jobs. He really loved to paint. He would often say "I am a pro when it comes to painting." James was kind hearted and loving, and it was illustrated in his love of dogs. He had various hobbies, writing, collecting miniature cars and trucks, building model homes from cardboard boxes, listening to music, and watching television to keep up with the world of sports and current events. James will surely be missed.
