Mr James Lee Arberry Jr was born and raised in Oakland California on October 27th, 1961 to James Lee Sr and Edna Lorraine Arberry. He was enrolled in Ralph J Bunche Elementary School where he had an interest for Baseball. He then went to Lowell Jr High School where he gained an interest for Basketball continuing his love for Basketball in Mcclymonds High School.
Being the venturous man that he was, while in school he made a decision to explore the world on his own and explore the world he did. He had a certain kind of lifestyle in mind for himself, and that’s exactly what he pursued. He left Oakland heading towards New York, is where he decided to make a life of the world he chose, but it never changed his heart, his soul or his mind. He loved people and people loved him. He enjoyed reaching the limits he set for himself and sometimes with that sense of humor he had.
Throughout his life, he loved and missed his family so he returned back to Oakland to discover that he had fell in love with New York City. He then set out to come back to New York to make it, and settle there for his home to be. Living life on his terms consisted of dignity and respect, something he demanded and that’s what he received in return. He loved the life he lived, and in his own words, he said: “I Lived A Good Life”.
