Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
James Holley Gresham was born June 3, 1947 in Toney, Alabama to the late Kathleen Holley Gresham and Willie Mitchell Gresham. Mr. Gresham grew up learning the value of hard work and owned and operated his Brick Masonry business for many years alongside his son. He also worked as a former security guard before his health began to fail. He was a devoted member of the Phenix City Moose Lodge. In his spare time, Mr. Gresham enjoyed spending time outdoors whether it was trying to save par on the golf course, catching fish on a local body of water, or enjoying the cool wind as he rode his motorcycle. He enjoyed travelling and cruising to new places and he was a big fan of Sci-Fi movies.
