James Paul Weller, age 52, of Columbia Heights, passed away May 17, 2013 after a valiant fight against a particularly virulent form of Multiple Myeloma.
Preceded in death by his infant son Andrew Michael.
Survived by his best friend & daughter Amy Weller; loving parents, Karen & Paul Weller; sister, Patricia Weller (Dennis Monroe) & their children: Mary Speake (Jon, daughter Lilian), Alex Monroe (Erica), Matthew Monroe & Jonathan Monroe; brother Jerry Weller (Sylvia) & their children Tim & Ashley Weller; his other best friend, Cindy Vannelli; Amy's grandmother, Jean Kalka; Amy's mom, Jerri Lynn and her sisters Karen, Gloria, & Beverly and their respective children; the "Bears" Special Olympics family; his riding buddies; and Jim's aunts, uncles & cousins.
Jim was the definition of a good guy: he always had a ready hand, a generous spirit & kind heart. We take comfort that he is with his son, at peace & out of pain but we will miss him terribly.
Sincere thanks to Dr. Bachanova & the BMT unit at The U; the healers at the UMMC and units 7D (especially Suk) & 4B.
Memorial Service: 10 AM, Wednesday, May 22 at Sunset Chapel, 2250 St. Anthony Blvd NE, Minneapolis.
