John Hugh Weston passed away in his home on Friday, November 1, 2013 in Torrance. Born on December 29, 1940 in Peoria, Illinois, John is survived by his wife, Purita "Pina" Arzadon Weston, his daughter Beth, son Brad, and stepdaughter Rea Mara. He had ten grandchildren and two great grandchildren. He attended Bradley University in Illinois and worked for Caterpillar until 1974 when he relocated to the South Bay. He then worked at Interface Welding, an inertia welding specialist, in Carson, where he retired as a Mfg/Eng Manager after more than 25 years. John loved taking road trips in his RV on the historic Route 66. He also liked attending car shows and watching Lakers basketball, golf tournaments and boxing on TV. In addition, he enjoyed taking photographs and videos of everyone and everything with the latest gadgets, and monitoring the weather, a subject he could talk about all day. John's outgoing personality and robust sense of humor endeared him to all. He will be deeply missed. Services will be held at the Rice Mortuary in Torrance on Saturday, November 16th. Viewing will be available 2 – 6pm. The ceremony will begin at 6pm with a reception to follow.
