Kelly's passion for adventure took him around the world. He scaled treacherous peaks which included Alaska's Mount McKinley, North America's highest peak at 20,320 feet; the Andes Mountains; and peaks in Europe. He even proposed to his wife Karen on Mount Rainier, near Seattle. The 48-year-old Dallas landscape architect was found deceased in a snow cave near the peak of Mount Hood, Oregon's highest mountain. He had suffered an aparant dislocated shoulder and most likely died of exposure, before the two friends he was climbing with could return with help. He was also identified as the man who had placed a 4-minute cell phone distress call to his family on December 10th, saying he'd been injured and his two fellow climbers had gone for help. Searchers found the cave he was in on Sunday the 18th, just below the summit, and was located by his cell phone signals. "He was a remarkable man and he was a very devoted and loving husband and father and a strong Christian." James had an eye for design as well. He and his wife worked for six years to renovate their 1970s Dallas home into a sleek, modern masterpiece, featuring paintings by her and a courtyard designed by James. He is survived by his wife Karen, mother Lou Ann Cameron, older brother Frank James and his four children, ages 12 to 25.
