Mr. Weldon was born in Clinton, Oklahoma on April 1, 1933, to Elbert E. and Floy May (Baker) Weldon. After attending school at Clinton, James joined the National Guard in 1956, and spent the next six years serving his country in the National Guard, United States Army and the United States Marine Corps. During this time he served his country in Korea and Japan. In 1956, his father died, and he helped his mother several years before moving to Oregon.

In 1982, James moved to Eldorado where he again set up a woodworking shop and worked eight years for Falcon Road Glass. On February 25, 1983, James married Shirley Birt and they spent the next thirty-one wonderful years together before his death. In his spare time, James enjoyed fishing and spending time with his family and friends.
