Theodore "Ted" WeaverAugust 30, 1943 ~ September 4, 2017 (age 74)
Theodore “Ted” Weaver, of Portage, MI, entered into his heavenly home on September 4, 2017. It is with confidence the first words he heard was “Well done my good and faithful servant”. Ted was born August 30, 1943, in Lancaster, PA, the son of Warren and Ada (Bucher) Weaver. He has been a Kalamazoo area resident since he attended WMU. During the Vietnam Era, Ted served in the United States Marine Corps. On June 23, 1967, he was united in marriage to Dorothy L. (Wellington) Weaver. He had a servant’s heart and found great pleasure in helping others. Ted was one of the prayerful saints who helped forge the foundation of The Bridge Church. His legacy will be honored there for many years. He was employed for many years as a financial planner, first with John Hancock Financial from 1967 to 1999 and then with The Wiser Financial Group from 1999 until his retirement in 2016. Ted was an avid sports fan, especially for his “PA teams”, the Steelers, Phillies and Penn State. However, he was much more of a fan of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchild. Surviving are his wife of 50 years, Dorothy L. Weaver; daughter Kalee Weaver; son Jeff (Melissa) Weaver; five grandchildren Alexis, Levi, Lydia & Landon Warren and Jackson Weaver; a great-granddaughter Camryn; his mother Ada Weaver; a brother William (Alice) Weaver; and many other special family and friends. Ted was preceded in death by his father Warren Weaver and by a brother Ronald Weaver.
