James Edward Weston, age 73, of Henderson, NV passed away on July 29, 2016.  He was born in Rocky River, OH to Sigmund and Irene Weston.  He attended high school there, where he belonged to the National Honor Society and was captain of the football team.  He earned in 1965 an undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering from the U.S. Naval Academy, where he continued to play football, and he completed graduate studies at the University of Michigan.  He went on to serve for over 23 years as public works officer in the Navy, including terms in Japan, Vietnam and Indian Ocean.  He retired as Captain and in 1988 relocated with his family from Annapolis to Henderson.
