John Lawrence Weare III

  • "Darin Jaques"

John Lawrence Weare III, of Plattsburgh, NY and a former resident of Star Tannery, VA, passed away February 13, 2019 surrounded by his loving family after a courageous two year battle with colon cancer. Through it all, he never lost his Faith and maintained a positive outlook, often encouraging those around him as they tried to support him.

He was a proud veteran of the United States Air Force and a skilled mechanic. He greatly loved the outdoors and his passionate love for fishing gave him great joy.

He was predeceased by his paternal grandfather, John Lawrence Weare Sr.; and his maternal grandparents, William and Jane Schreiber.

He is survived by his beloved and devoted wife, Alaina; his sister, Lauren Figler and her husband Aaron; his father, John Lawrence Weare Jr. and his wife Shannez; and his mother, Sheree and her husband James "Fireball" Combs. He is further survived by his grandmother, Mary Lee Weare; and his maternal aunt, Brenda Miller and her husband Alex.

Services will be held at Virginia Hills Church, Front Royal, VA Saturday, March 9 at 12 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks anyone interested in remembering John to consider a donation to Trout Unlimited, Mt Jackson Masonic Lodge 103, or Virginia Hills Church.

Thank you to Pastor Eric Reploeg and his wife Melissa for their ministry to John and Alaina and our family, both during their time as members of the congregation and again as he fought cancer.
