James was the proud owner of Photographic Impressions in Plymouth. With his dedication and passion for photography, he captured countless memorable moments for families and businesses in the area. After years of hard work, James retired about ten years ago, leaving behind a legacy of excellence and creativity in his field.

His commitment to defending his nation demonstrated his selflessness and bravery.

Outside of work, James had a wide range of interests and hobbies that brought him joy.

He also sang in the church choir for Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Livonia. 

James Edward Robertson was a man of integrity and generosity who touched the lives of all who knew him. His devotion to his family, entrepreneurial spirit, dedication to service, and passions for fishing, gardening, music, and dance will forever be remembered.
