James Robert Weaver
March 18, 1947 – April 5, 2018
James Robert Weaver, age 71, of Sandwich, Massachusetts passed away on Thursday, April 5 at Cape Cod Hospital.
Jim was born in Brookville, Pennsylvania on March 18, 1947 to the late Robert D. and Bettie J. (Britton) Weaver. Jim grew up around that area of Pennsylvania, moving to Pittsburgh after his high school graduation. He met his wife Cheryl in 1969 at the pizza place where they worked. Jim and Cheryl moved to Florida in 1973 where he worked as a professional land surveyor for many years. He completed his bachelor of science in Management (Finance), summa cum laude, at Florida Southern in 1983. Jim received his JD from the Western New England College School of Law in 1988. His daughter Caitlin was born and the family moved to Cape Cod, finally settling in Sandwich. After over two decades, Jim retired from Eversource as a senior right of way specialist. He loved to share aerial photos of Cape Cod that he took while inspecting the power lines from a helicopter.
Jim loved Delta blues and folk music. An avid guitar player, Jim always looked back fondly at his time in bands back in Pittsburgh, and in recent years had reconnected with many of his former bandmates thanks to Facebook, even attending shows of theirs. In his retirement, he enjoyed playing his guitar in his practice area, where it filled the whole house with music. His daughter Caitlin and Jim attended many shows together, most recently at the South Shore Folk Music Club. Jim had great joy with his dog Willow, a malti-poo, who shadowed him everywhere.
Jim is survived by his wife of 46 years, Cheryl A. Weaver (Klebacha) of Sandwich, Massachusetts; daughter Caitlin E. Cuccia (Weaver) and son-in-law Isaac Cuccia of Weymouth, Massachusetts; brother Thomas Weaver of Romulus, New York; sister Marta Medlar (Weaver) of Ithaca, New York; and several dozen nieces and nephews across the country.
A visitation will be held 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, April 13, 2018 at the Nickerson-Bourne Funeral Home 154 Route 6A Sandwich, MA. Burial will be private.
