Obituary of Doug Weaver
It is with great sadness that the family of Douglas Edward Weaver, husband of the late Doreen Weaver, announce his passing on October 24, 2021 at his residence. Born on October 24, 1938, in Halifax, NS, he was a son of the late Joseph and Aileen Weaver.
Doug was a pipefitter by trade and a proud member of Pipefitters Local 213. He enjoyed the outdoors travelling the trails on his ATV. He loved to fish and hunt his whole life but still found time to go boating, scuba diving, play golf and sit down to a good card game. He was an avid Toronto Blue Jays fan and had a soft spot for cats. In his earlier days he and Doreen were known as quite the dance partners! Most of all Doug loved his family and especially spending time with his cherished grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Doug will be lovingly remembered by his children, Dwaine (Cindy) of Saint John and Tracey Barsalou (David) of Kingston; grandchildren, Jeffrey (Christy Silvestri), Ryan (Kirsten Del Bel), Scott (Virginia Balemans), Amanda (Ryan Whalen), Sean and Jill; great-grandchildren, MacKenzie, Hayley and Xander; sister-in-law, Norma Taylor (Kevin); brother-in-law, Jack Rackley; as well as many nieces, nephews and extended family. In addition to his wife and parents, Doug was predeceased by his brother, Joe.
