David Lowell Weimer

David Lowell Weimer

David Lowell Weimer, age 70, cherished son of Lowell and Marion Weimer, died on March 7, in his home, after suffering with pancreatic cancer for three months. He was the Weimer's first-born and had all the characteristics and privileges of the eldest child. He graduated from Millikan HS in 1960 and went on to LBCC/BTD. In January 1965, he hired into Douglas Aircraft as a drill press operator, but soon became an electrical planner and that's how it was for the next 37 years. He married his high school sweetheart, Diane Wasley on March 26, 1965. Married 47 years, they raised two fine sons, Stephen and Kurt. David was well read and his interests were wide spread. He could speak on many topics. He was kind and such a good listener. David was a "maker". He crafted 3-masted ship models, restored a '75 CJ5 Jeep, and finally completed the ultimate task, a 700 square foot family room off the back of our home. As a "can do guy, he was confident in his abilities. He could fix anything! Survived by his wife, Diane, his sons Stephen (Robin) and Kurt (Nakiesha) and his grandson, Padraic, siblings Darrel, sister-in-law (Sally Weimer Aquino), Claudia, Paul (Amy), his brother-in-law Stephen (Cindy) and sister-in-law, Sue Fairley (Joel). A celebration of life will be held March 30, from 1-4 at the El Dorado Park Tent on 2400 N. Studebaker Rd. L.B. Email Ann Driskill your RSVP at annied8@verizon.net.
