He volunteered at a nursing home, helping residents often 10 to 20 years his junior. He actually broke his hip while volunteering and, with his indomitable spirit and family love, recovered and went back to living at home. He remained mentally and physically active until pneumonia took him away. He was a loving father and family man and is survived by his three children—Jane Weston (of East Amherst, New York), Paul Murray (of Key West, Florida), and Alexander Murray (of Gaithersburg, Maryland); four grandchildren—Robert Weston, Jamie Weston, Peter Murray, and Krista Murray; a great-granddaughter, Julia Jane Weston; and a great-grandson, Peter Alan Gerard Weston. The family has many fond memories of Peter, including the many visits of American scientists to his home in England, playing with the children and the pets, and chatting with anybody on anything and everything. He is missed both professionally and personally.
