age 75, of Dunbar, passed away peacefully from natural causes Friday January 3, 2020, at his home. He was born in Chicago, Illinois on September 11, 1944; son of the late Bernard and Bernice (Helding) Weaver. He was a talented mechanic and body shop guy, known for painting Corvettes. Later in life he became an expert “scrapper”. Jim loved his life in Dunbar. Buying his acreage, building his cabin and opening his shop gave him pride. “Weave” enjoyed deer and bird hunting, snow shoeing, cutting firewood, chit-chatting with his friends, going to Richards Supper Club and spending time with his coffee klatch buddies. Everyone knows Jim was good for a favor, offering a hand or lending a tool, often times giving his last dollar. His family adored him and respected his unshakable integrity and modesty.
Jim is survived by his brother, Ron Weaver; sister, Jeanette Woods, nieces and nephew: Lynette (Mark) Wendel, Sandy Woods (Miranda) Laura Weaver (Joey), Jason (Coleen) Weaver; and former partner, Sandy VanDen Heuvel (Terah and Austin).
A Celebration of Jim’s Life will take place on Saturday July 11, 2020, at the Dunbar Sportsmen’s Club from 1p.m. until 5p.m.
