James Bills holds the utmost standards in integrity and quality not only in his business and the many excellent jobs he has completed over the years, but in all areas of his life. He has been happily married for over 32 years and is the proud father of 3 beautiful children. The strong work ethic and genuine care for all people that has driven J. W. Bills & Sons to distinction have also been instilled on his children by James and his wife, Grace.
His eldest son, James Jr., also known as Jimmy, is 29 and has decided to work alongside his father. James is taking the same time his father took in teaching his son this unique trade. Prior to receiving superb training from James since the age of 18, Jimmy also attended two years of vocational school specializing in carpentry. Due to all of this Jimmy, in turn, has become a hardworking, dedicated member of the crew and will someday continue the tradition of excellence and become the 4th generation owner.
His only daughter, Melissa, is now 28 and graduated from both Shore Regional High School and the University of North Carolina Wilmington with honors. She is currently pursuing her M.S. in Occupational Therapy from Bay Path College. She hopes to eventually obtain a Doctorate in the subject. Although her career choice does not have to do with construction, she has a great love of historical architecture that has been cultivated by her father and plans on renovating her own historic home in the future.
His third child, Walter, is now 10. He was a complete surprise to the Bills family, but welcomed with loving arms. He is already starting to emulate his father and older brother often wanting to go to jobsites with them. Walter has his own tool belt and loves to help out in any way he can. When asked what he wanted to be when he grows up, Walter proudly stated, "I want to be just like my older brother." Although still young, his love of the family trade is already evident.
