James William Likins

May 18, 1940 — December 5, 2020

James William Likins, age 72 of Nixa, died December 5, 2020. He was born May 18, 1948 in Coraopolis, Pennsylvania. On November 15, 1983 he was united in marriage to Elfriede (Calvin.) James proudly served his country in the U.S. Marines. After serving in the military he worked hard as a truck driver, providing for his family as long as he was able. He could be a little gruff sometimes and had his own sense of humor where only he got the punch line. James also had a big heart and big hugs. He is dearly loved and will be sincerely missed. Survivors include: his wife, Elfriede "Elfie" Likins; his children, Jennifer Husted and husband Danny, Jimmy Likins, Chad Likins, Miechele Cetola and husband Lane and Joseph Likins; and a slew of grandchildren and great grandchildren spreading from the west coast to the Midwest. James was preceded in death by his parents. A memorial service at Adams Funeral Home, Nixa, with full military honors will be held Sunday, December 20, 2020 at 1:00 P.M. Burial will be at Missouri Veterans Cemetery, Springfield.
