Weston was born in Los Angeles, CA, and attended secondary school and college there. He served in the US Army during World War II, and returned to Los Angeles, where he practiced architecture until 1956. He moved to La Jolla, CA, just outside of San Diego, where he spent the next 34 years. Upon retirement in 1990, he and his wife relocated to Sea Ranch, near Gualala, CA, where they remained until 2003, when they returned to Southern CA, to Santa Barbara, to be near children. He passed away there.

His grandfather and father preceded him as architects. Eugene Weston, Sr., operated a bungalow construction company in Los Angeles by the late 1800s. His father, Eugene Weston, Jr., operated an architectural firm for many years. He and his uncle, Joseph Weston, attempted, like many others, to develop prefabricated, factory-made houses during the 1930s. He had a sister, Jane, who survived him at this death in 2012.

Eugene Weston was married for 65 years to Wanda Weston; she had been an interior design student attending the Art Center School at the same time as him.

He and Wanda had four daughters: Candy, Karen, Mimi and Sherri.
