Glen was preceded in death by his daughter, Janet I. Postell and survived by sons, Terry Weaver, William Weaver, Patrick Weaver and daughter, Shari Hamilton.
Born in Paulding, OH he could run a team on a plow, and learned to fish at an early age. Glen bragged of only having to catch the fish. The restaurant owner was so pleased that Glen never left hungry.
Glen jointed the Army in the 45th division, Infantry and served our country for 18 months. Glen went to Korea as a boy and came back with memories we could only extract recently. Wounded, Glen received a Purple Heart.
Glen married right out of the Army and he and his former wife shared the above mentioned children. He then remarried and is preceded in death by Shirley E. Weaver.
We all admired him and his many talents. His unconditional love for us was never in doubt.
Glen retired from the Northwest and Western Railroad after 43 years. Glen’s nickname was “Duck.” Glen also shared a passion for shooting pool, playing chess, fishing, woodworking and cards.
We were so blessed to see him everyday these past 9 months and only wished he didn’t have to go so soon. Our tomorrows will long for his quirky facial gestures and his perfect timely wisdom.
We will sorely miss his endearing smile and his spunky suggestions for ice cream.
Dad loved life and left life too soon for us. He leaves behind 13 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren.
Dad, God’s speed and put in a good word for us when you get to Heaven. We love you, as you loved us, your children.
