OXFORD - Ronald John Weston, Sr., age 81 of Oxford, beloved husband of Janet (Spigarolo) Weston, entered peaceful rest on Tuesday, March 12, 2019 surrounded by family in Bridgeport Hospital. Born in New Haven on July 24, 1937, he was a son of the late George and Olga Weston. A US Army veteran, Ron served his country honorably as a member of the 82nd Airborne Division. After returning home, he would complete The Food Distribution Program at Cornell University and then graduate from William Paterson University with a finance degree. When he retired from the business world, Ron had an antiquarian book business for 20 years. Known for having a unique sense of humor, Pop-Pop would often tell his grandchildren, in jest, they were having “too much fun”. He was a member of the Oxford Senior Center, an avid golfer, chess, poker, pool, ping-pong player and a talented raspberry grower. Ron was a generous man and would donate proceeds from selling his raspberries to The Smile Train. Proud of his determination, he won a lawsuit against McDonald’s in small claims court.
In addition to his adoring wife of 60 years, survivors include his loving children, Kimberley George and her husband Keith of KY, Christel Kiefer of Easton, and RJ Weston and his wife Holly of Coventry; 8 cherished grandchildren, Emma and her husband Brett, Allison, Sarah, Zachary, Ethan and his fiancée Kelsey, Carly, Chloe and Mikala; valued brothers, Rick Weston and his wife Bertha of NY, G.V. Weston and his wife Beth of MA, and Charlie Weston and his wife Jodi of Fairfield; sister-in-law, Agnes Spigarolo of Fairfield; son-in-law, Joseph Kiefer of Easton, as well as several nieces and nephews and Marie Freeman and her longtime companion Richie.
