To cherish his many memories he leaves behind his adoring wife Georgia Mae Pilgrim, his children Jaime Pilgrim, Jasmin Pilgrim, Antwain Robinson, John Burch, Tyquanne Johnson, Nicole Pilgrim, James E, Pilgrim jr., Jalil Pilgrim, and Jewels Pilgrim.

James also leaved behind 17 Grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, uncles, and aunts.
