I cannot think back to growing up on Elkhart Street without remembering Mr. Weaver. He was a hard working, faithful man of great integrity. He was a wonderful father and a role model for all of us. He was also very jovial and had an infectious laugh when he found something particularly amusing. His laugh could be heard two doors down at our house and it always brought us a smile. My condolences to Jeff, Jennifer and John. You will miss him everyday, but know that you will always carry him with you in your heart.
Kathy Driscoll Williams, December 15, 2019 I’ll always remember fondly our time spent together playing and running around the house, and specifically in the pool out back of the house, plus all the wonderful holidays! Love you, Grandpa. Evan Eshelman, December 9, 2019 I know the time has passed since Bill left to his eternal home but he will always be in my heart and mind as I remember him as the gentle, kind, loving, caring, and compassionate man that he was. He lived his life this way as he truly believed in and lived his life according to the Word of our Heavenly Father. I will always remember his beautiful smile, great sense of humor, and wonderful laugh. He was a hard worker, loved his family, friends, and all those he met, he served his country honorably, and has forever left a legacy of what a truly good man should be. Welcome Home, Bill<3 Brenda Eshelman, December 9, 2019 Dad, It is with mixed emotion that I write to you today. On one hand I am saddened that you have departed, that I won’t be able to see you again in this life, and on the other I am celebrating the life that you lived, the things that you taught me, and the example of love that you provided. I once heard an expression that those who are unwilling to be last can never be first. Without a doubt, you were the first person I thought of when I heard this. You always put your family, friends, neighbors, and even complete strangers before yourself with understanding, patience, sacrifice, and support. As I reflect on your life, and my own, I am extremely grateful for the values you showed me and I believe this helps me strive to be half the man you are. I will miss you and know that we will be together again when God calls me home. I love you so much and want to thank you for everything you did for me. John Weaver, December 7, 2019 Dad left a legacy of love, faithfulness, honor, good humor, and an ethic of hard work. I am blessed beyond measure to have had his example. The Lord Jesus gives eternal life to those who trust in Him. What a beautiful promise. Jeff Weaver, December 3, 2019 John, So sorry for the loss of your Dad. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. My deepest Sympathy, Deray

For 50 years, you molded and shaped my world with kindness, support, honesty, discipline, humor, laughter and love. I will forever cherish our bond and relationship. Thank you for being such a great person. I will always love you. See you in Heaven. Rest in peace. Jennifer Weaver, November 30, 2019 Thinking of you and your brothers during this time of loss. The Hankinson Family, November 29, 2019 Thank you for everything you’ve done for me and my family and being the best father to your children. I know you’re resting in peace now, and I will see you again in heaven soon. I will never forget all the kindness you showed and the love you gave us. I’m glad you’re in a better place now, I love you! Nicole Weaver, November 28, 2019 A life well lived! "Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father's house has many rooms, if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you with me that you also may be where I am." John 14:1-3 Betsy San Jose, November 28, 2019 May my wonderful Uncle Bill Rest In Peace,
Michael Weaver, November 28, 2019 I just want to thank God for late Mr Weaver who had a well spent life, especially for the military, and his family. I will never forget him during activities at Lynridge, he encouraged so many people by getting up to dance (Alan Jackson) country music as his favorite song. I will highly miss Mr weaver, but his memories and his name “callings” will forever live in our hearts.
Florence Muigua, November 27, 2019 Mr. Weaver will be dearly missed. I enjoyed his beautiful smile and witty banter. Sending our thoughts and prayers to the Weaver family. Cherie Lehmann, November 27, 2019 A kind man and a caring grandpa. Always called me on my birthday. Jacob L. Weaver, November 26, 2019 You will be missed, Grandpa. Brittany Uhl, November 26, 2019 Miss you Poppa Bill.
Zachary Hadley, November 26, 2019 I have the great pleasure of being friends with Mr. Weaver's daughter Jennifer. She and I were colleagues at the US Dept of Veterans Affairs in Los Angeles, CA in 2003 and become close friends til this day. I am sure her father demonstrated many of the same wonderful qualities that Jen has now, such as patience, grace, understanding, strength and humor. "Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen." -Cristina McKinnon, Torrance, CA Cristina McKinnon, November 26, 2019
