James Vernon Weigman, 73, passed away after his battle with cancer in Tallahassee on Wednesday, April 1, 2020.
James was born September 6, 1946 in Baltimore, Maryland to James Vernon Weigman Jr. and Marjorie (née Childs) Weigman, but grew up mostly under the loving care of his grandmother, Helen. He spent his youth doing what he enjoyed – playing sports, working on cars, and listening to music.
James began his career path at the Armco Steel plant as an operator. As a young man, he met Christina and they were soon married. He and his wife moved to Glen Burnie, Maryland where they raised two sons, Stephen and David. They took family trips camping and to amusement parks. He taught them how to play sports and coached their football teams.
While at Armco, he added night shifts in the security department, working hard to provide for his family. After finishing his associate’s degree, he changed positions again and became a computer engineer. He finished his career in Maryland working for CMC Solutions. He and his wife moved to Tallahassee, Florida in 1992. He continued his computer engineering career first with the City of Tallahassee and later CMSI (later Computer Associates). James finished his career working as an independent consultant.
James spent his retirement enjoying what he loved most – sports. He was an avid Florida State Seminoles and Washington Redskins fan (formerly a Baltimore Colts fan until they were stolen in the middle of the night). He collected memorabilia from all sports and teams. He enjoyed model cars, harkening back to working on cars in his youth. Above all, he was a devoted husband, dedicated father, and doting grandfather.
James is preceded in death by his loving wife of 52 years, Christina Weigman, and son, David Lee Weigman. He is survived by his son Stephen Weigman, daughter-in-law Samantha Weigman, and grandson David Eoghan Weigman.
Private funeral services for James will be held on Tuesday, April 14, 2020 at the Lakeview Memorial Park, 2724 Liberty Rd., Sykesville, MD 21784 where he will also be laid to rest.
