COLUMBUS — James Joseph “Jim” Weber was born July 10, 1957, to Evelyn Payne Weber and George Henry Weber in Newark. Jim lived his childhood years in Mansfield and most of his adult life in New Mexico. Jim left us on Oct. 22, 2011, after a long and courageous battle with Pick’s disease.

Jim leaves behind his life partner and loving caregiver, Eric Senff; his son, Jeremiah Weber; his mother, Evelyn Weber Chandler and stepfather, Bill Chandler; one sister, Mary Trivette; five brothers, George, Michael, Ron, John and Geoff, and their families; his stepsisters and their families; and many nieces, nephews and other family members and friends.

Jim was predeceased by his father, George Weber.

Jim worked for almost 16 years for the New Mexico Human Services Department — Income Support Division in a number of key positions. He was a caring and compassionate man who believed we have both the duty and the privilege of serving others in need of help and encouragement. A sincere thank you to the many people who provided assistance, care and support to Jim and Eric during these last years and months of Jim’s life.

A memorial celebration of Jim’s life will be held Friday, Nov. 4, at 2 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbus, 93 W. Weisheimer Road, Columbus, OH 43214, with the hope that those who knew and loved him will come to honor a life well-lived, and to share memories of him with laughter and gratitude for the times we were given with him.
