John Weimer passed away January 17, 2014 after a short illness. He was born in Seattle Washington on January 26, 1952, to John and Edith Weimer. He graduated from Edmonds High School in 1969, further completing his studies at Edmonds Community College and the University of Washington. Married in 1975, John and Christine raised their three daughters in Stanwood, WA where he owned and operated his own computer resource company for many years. Later, John moved to Darrington, WA where he built his cabin in the woods near the Sauk River. He began work at Hampton Lumber. John often spoke fondly of his colleagues and friends in the small mountain community he called home. John had a keen interest and was well versed in science, astronomy and mathematics. He enjoyed fishing, science fiction books, being outdoors during the day and observing the stars at night. He loved the annual vacation with family and friends at Lake Palmer, a tradition started with his own parents. A terrific water skier himself, John loved the challenge of getting a new or old skier up and running. With his sense of humor intact, he would patiently sit at the wheel of his boat as the skier prepared for a run. "Hit it" would be called out, and once again the old blue Reinell would faithfully take off across the lake. John is survived by his beloved daughters, Maggie Weimer Williams (Don), Gretchen Weimer (Josh), Sarah Denby (JR); grandchildren Paige, Jack, Ingrid, Jens, Karl and Cassius. He leaves friends and family, including Christine Wilstein, Leeann and Tim Nakken, Matthew and Jacque Nakken, Kylah and Jason Linton, Joshua and Katie Clark, and Adam Hughes. John will forever remain in our hearts and our memories. A memorial service will be held Friday, February 7, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. at the Darrington Community Center. Friends and family are welcome to attend.
