Weston, daughter Judith Weston Hoskins, grandchildren Jake, Tessa, and Sam, and stepdaughter Barbara Yaros. He was 93.

His stepchildren include Bruce Nothem, William Nothem, Barbara Yaros (Mark), Greg Nothem, Sandra Whalen (Dave), Andrew Nothem (Amber), and numerous step-grandchildren and step-great-grandchildren. Jim Weston was born in South Paris, Maine, and spent his childhood in Portland, where he attended Deering High School. He and siblings M. Bertha Weston and J. Raymond Weston were raised by their beloved mother Helene C. Weston; they have predeceased him. He enlisted in the Army Air Corps in 1939, and served for the duration of WWII. He was introduced to his first wife, Lynne M. Weston, as pen pals while he was stationed in Northern Africa, and they were married from April 1945 until her death in July 1994. Following his graduation from Purdue University College of Engineering, on the GI Bill, Jim and Lynne lived in Connecticut (first Groton, then Rocky Hill, and finally Wethersfield) as Jim made his career as an electrical engineer at Northeast Utilities (formerly Hartford Electric Light Co. and Connecticut Light and Power). He was in a supervisory position as head of the Substation Development Group. He retired in 1985, and moved to Rancho Bernardo; he adopted RB as home. After Lynne's death, he met Ardythe on a tour to London, and they married October 7, 1996. They enjoyed their blended families on both coasts; they enjoyed singing in the choir at San Rafael Catholic Church, their season tickets for the Chargers, traveling to Europe, attending theater and opera. Jim was a devoted husband, and a committed supporter of San Rafael Church, the Rancho Bernardo Library, and the San Diego Chargers. The funeral mass will be held at San Rafael Church (17252 Bernardo Center Drive, Rancho Bernardo), at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, October 31.
