Bernard Weaver Obituary
Bernie was born in Union, Michigan, to parents Joe and Alice Weaver. He graduated from Massanutten Military Academy in 1954. He met and married his first wife, Judy, began a family and enlisted into the Air Force hoping to pursue a medical career. Color blindness disqualified him from that dream. After serving his country for four years he returned to civilian life where he pursued the life insurance industry to support the family of four sons and wife. After seventeen years his first marriage ended and he began a new chapter with Laurel and daughter, Leslie. His new family moved to California where he became Senior Vice President of CalFed Insurance Company. After retirement they moved to Texas and bought an Alphagraphics Printshop franchise. Ten years later they sold the franchise and created a new business in home repair & remodel. It was very successful for the next seventeen years when Bernie and Laurel retired for good.
Bernie loved golf, racquet ball, boating, camping and spending time with family and friends. He was a proud member of The American Legion where he and Laurel made very special life long friendships. He was known for his hugs and the scent of Paul Sebastian cologne. Bernie was invited into an exclusive group called THE LOF'S. Translation, "Lazy Old Farts" that met bi-weekly at Ridglea Country Club for lunch, libation and camaraderie. They were an impressive group of successful businessmen that enjoyed life to the fullest. He never missed a luncheon!
Family, faith, country and friends were very important to Bernie. He was always available to help, support, encourage and enjoy life. Kindness, honesty and integrity all described him. He was a true gentleman, respected and admired by all who knew him.
Bernie was preceded in death by parents Joe and Alice Weaver as well as siblings Walter and Ruth.
He is survived by his wife, Laurel of 52 years; sons Ed and wife, DeDe; John and wife, Jeanne; Randy and wife, Heather; Scott and wife, Connie; daughter Leslie and husband Tim. Bernie was blessed with 12 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.
A private "Celebration Of Life" gathering will be held at the American Legion Post #297, Benbrook, Texas. The date is to be announced.
In lieu of flowers please come to the Celebration with an endearing story to share about Bernie.
Cheers to Bernie. He will be missed forever by family and friends. Rest peacefully sweet man. You are loved.
