Weyer, William Christopher
William “Bill” Christopher Weyer, age 92, passed peacefully into his new world with Jesus Christ on January 2, 2018, at his home in Narrows, Virginia.
Bill was born in Central Butte, Saskatchewan, Canada on September 7th, 1925 and lived on the family farms in Saskatchewan and Alberta, Canada until his family moved to the US when he was 10 years old. He graduated from Gonzaga High School in Spokane, Washington and served in the U.S. Navy during World War II. After the war, Bill started a 36 year career with Kaiser Aluminum. During his tenure there, he rose from factory worker to plant manager. While serving this role in Kaiser Plants throughout the US, including Spokane, WA; Ravenswood, WV; Belpre, OH; and Valparaiso, IN, his prestigious career also took him to locations such as Europe, Japan and Australia. Bill married Carol Mae Murray in Spokane and they raised five children together and had many wonderful experiences of cross-country vacations, camping, and Myrtle Beach trips. Bill was an avid gardener and golfer and a published poet. He also loved playing the harmonica for family and friends and telling many wonderful stories throughout his life. His ability to delight and entertain will be greatly missed.
Bill was preceded in death by his loving wife of 62 years, Carol Mae Weyer; his parents, Andrew and Jane Munro Weyer; his sisters Catherine, Margaret and Wilma; and brothers Tom and Pat.
Left to cherish his memory are his brother Joe Weyer of Spokane, WA; his five children; Tom and wife Marci of Ripley, WV; Dave and wife Robin of Narrows, VA; Sharon Weyer Aune of Everett, WA; Kevin and wife Susan of Richmond, TX; and Steve and wife Lori of Moses Lake, WA; 15 grandchildren, 25 great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. He also leaves behind two very special friends/caretakers, Barbara Ganoe and Aleta Buzzo, of whom he was very fond, and a host of other family and friends.
