Jim was born on July 10, 1945, to Jimmie Sr., and Rhama (Eudaley) Weaver in Carnegie, OK.

While doing a post-doc at the Univ. of Georgia, he went on a blind date with and eventually married Brenda Faye Smith on 28 Nov. 1975 in Dublin, GA. Jim and Brenda both worked for Halliburton Energy Services in Duncan, OK; Jim had a long and remarkable career. He was an active member and servant of the Oak Avenue (now Heritage Oaks) Church of the Nazarene. Jim will be missed by all who knew him.
