Jim was preceded in death by his loving wife of fifty-five years, Sandra Tweed; and parents, Jim and Lorena Tweed.

He is survived by his three sons, Michael Tweed (Lensi), Mark Tweed (Beth), and Kevin Tweed (Kirstie); brother, Edward “Duke” Tweed; and three grandchildren, John Tweed, Will Tweed (Mallory), and Lauren Tweed.
