Eugene "Pork" William Weaver, age 87 of Defiance, passed away peacefully on Monday evening, May 4, 2020 at Kingsbury Place in Defiance, Ohio, with his loving family by his side.
Pork was born on April 9, 1933 in Defiance, Ohio to the late Floyd and Cevilla J. (Lenhart) Weaver. He married Charlene "Weenie" Weaver on September 6, 1958. Weenie preceded him in death on January 27, 2020.
Pork proudly served three years on the U.S. Marine Corp. during the Korean War. Following his service in the Marines, he worked at Johns-Manville as a Shipping Supervisor for 34 years. After retirement from JM, he went to work part-time for the Kitchen Center - a job he loved because it allowed him to work in the morning and play golf in the afternoon. Pork was an avid sports enthusiast and the most loyal Cleveland sports fan there ever was! He loved his family dearly and was so very proud of each of them. Pork had a tender heart for all animals, especially their beloved miniature schnauzer, "Bogey".
Pork is survived by his three children; Thomas (Laurie) Weaver of Defiance, Julie (Kurt) Gaskell of Valparaiso, IN, and Sally (Matt) Mattocks of Virginia Beach, VA. He also leaves behind his precious grandchildren; Leisha, Kacey, Tyler, Jason, Joshua, Philip, and Erika, and his darling great-grandchildren; Piper, Prynn, Katelyn, Lyanna, Easton, Mason, Brantley, and Cash. He is also survived by one sister, Joan Palmer of Littleton, Colorado.
In addition to his parents and wife, he was preceded in death by his brother, Gerald F. "Jerry" Weaver.
