  • John "Bill" Weaver

    Following several years of declining health, Bill Weaver died quietly at home on Sunday August 28th. A small service will be held for him today in Williamsburg, VA. We ask that friends refrain from contacting mom until later this week. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to your local hospice organizations.

    Dad's involvement in powerboat racing ran from 1953 through 2008. From memory, he competed in classes ASH, ASR, BSR, 250H, 350H, 125H, CService H, 250R, RBH and 2.5 Litre Stock/145H. Dad was actively involved in Region 4 and with CVRA. He served several stints as Region Chairman, Secretary, Vice Chairman and in leadership roles with CVRA. Needless to say, boat racing was central to dad's life. He cherished the many friendships that developed throughout a lifetime of racing and cameraderie.

    A later time, we will establish a memorial tied to his beloved CVRA.

    For his family, this is frankly a time to reflect happily on his life and to take comfort in knowing that he is at peace. Please share fond memories here if you wish, but he would not want a bunch teary-eyed"fuss".

    Thank You.

              David, your dad was a cool guy!
              Joyce, Brad and I enjoyed talking to him. We remember his stories about his relatives and the Indians in the early days of this country.
              I thought of him when we spoke at DePue last month. He will be missed.
              See you at the Finish Line Bill.

                    Dave, you and all your family have our deepest sympathy. Your mom and dad were very special and always made us feel so welcome when we came to pig pickin' in the fall. They would gather a large bag of "big" pine cones before anyone else arrived and save them for Mary every year for her "kids" craft projects at work. May God Bless You and Your Family
