James Arther Weldon was born February 27, 1947 to Arthur William Weldon and Catherine Mary Denn Weldon. He is survived by his wife, Charlotte who laughed with him and loved him: who provided joy and comfort softened his days and sent him to Heaven. He is also survived by sisters Catherine Margaret Jamison, Mary Ann Shea, Patricia Ann Borhman and his brother Richard (Rickie) Dennis Weldon. Jim was most proud of his four children, James Weldon, Joseph Weldon, Rene Weldon and Jason Weldon their wives Taerra, Keilie, Melissa as well as his 8 grandchildren. Jim was just recently and unexpectedly joined in heaven by his daughter in law Rainnie
He married Linda Charlotte Vaehon in 1967 who passed away in 2005. He married Charlotte Lucille Payne Evin in 2007. They remained married until his passing on March 26, 2015.
Jim was a hard worker all his life. Family was always his primary interest. He went to High School full time and worked full time. His sister Cathy remembers that he bought her a winter coat with his earnings. Jim often worked two jobs to provide for his family. When his children were young he coached Little League then continued coaching Little League for 20 years. He touched the minds and hearts of his players. Several remembered him as their best coach, saying he gave them a foundation from which they formed their lives.
Jim proudly served his country in the Army Reserves as a Sargent cook. And could he cook! Jim also worked for Ryder Transportation for over 20 years as District Manager. Jim spent his last 10 years selling classic auto parts with his work family at Impala Bobs. He loved his cars.
Jim was the kind of man who engendered respect, honesty, quality of life and now is honored and loved for his heroism in the face of all odds. He was funny, kind, intelligent and sensible. He always gave more than he got. His determination, strength and bravery were awesome to behold. He was loved and loved in return. He was my hero, my husband, my love, my friend and filled the pages of my life. He will be sorely missed.
