In lieu of flowers, attendees were asked to consider a monetary donation to a memorial palaeontology scholarship in James’ name.

Due to poor weather, the event, which was originally to be held at Ada Ryan Gardens, was moved indoors and saw hundreds of people pack the club to say their goodbyes.
Surviving car crash victim and fellow passenger Jason Bristow has since been released from hospital and attended both services.
Mr Bristow spoke at both services and acted as pall bearer for best friend James.
Fourth passenger, Amy Jones, has been transferred to Whyalla hospital and continues to receive treatment for injuries sustained as a result of the crash.
