An avid baseball fan, Weldon played shortstop for Windsor and Brogue teams and enjoyed watching the Orioles play. Music was another interest -- he played trumpet in the Red Lion Band and especially loved marches. Hunting was a passion whether going for small game with his beagles, or spending time in a deer stand. Weldon was known for his delicious homemade apple butter; firewood precisely cut and stacked, a neatly kept lawn with ample flowers; his unique sense of humor; and his willingness to help friends or family, no matter how hard the work.
Weldon's grandchildren and great-grandchildren were very special to him. Although usually a man of few words, he mentioned and inquired about them regularly, even in recent months as his health began to fail.
