James “Yogi” Frades, 62, of Clarksburg, Calif., and formerly of Union, died Sept. 15 at the Sacramento V.A. Medical Center. Graveside services will begin at 1 p.m. Oct. 20 at Union Cemetery. River Cities Mortuary was in charge of initial services.

James was born Nov. 19, 1944, to Ray and Edith (Wigglesworth) Frades in La Grande. He graduated from Union High in 1963 and went into the Army in October 1963. He spent 12 years there until he was injured.

He worked at a pallet yard in Livermore, Calif., until illness forced him to leave his job. Those who knew him say he loved life and never complained. He also loved fishing.

James is survived by his sisters, June and her husband, Melverne Bauck, of North Powder, Janice and her husband, Jerry Brust, of Scappoose, Sheila Russell of Phoenix, Ariz., and Marilyn Harvey of Enterprise; and long-time friend, Norma Rolley of Brookings. He was preceded in death by his father, Ray; his mother and stepfather, Edith and Joe McCain; brother, Mike; and grandparents, Frank and Lola Wigglesworth.
