James F. Weaver, remarkably charming husband and father, steadfast business owner, army veteran and sports enthusiast, died on Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2013, at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia at the age of 73. He was the loving husband of Patricia (Weiss) Weaver for 53 years and the son of the late Charles and Elsie (Ruch) Weaver.
Jim, commonly referred to as Fin or Ellie!, took great pride for over 50 years in his family-owned and operated roofing business, James F. Weaver Roofing. As a roofer, he was very appreciative of the small things like a cloud or shady tree, a roof without multiple layers of shingles, a cool breeze or a slice of his wife's delicious raspberry pie.
Photos of Jim can be found in most reputable dictionaries defining the words grit and work ethic. Although his death was sudden, Jim's life was fulfilled by passing these qualities to his four children, six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. He was a man of select words and led his family by example.
Survivors: his wife; children, Cindy, wife of Joseph Talago, Robert, Timothy and wife, Leigh Ann and Bonnie, wife of Timothy Krise; grandchildren, Justin Talago and wife, Natasha, James and Simon Talago, Aaron, Adam and Addison Weaver; great-grandchildren, Noah and Bianca Talago; siblings, Charles and his wife, Cathy, Gary and his wife, Janis, Nancy, wife of Brian Kleckner, Carol, wife of Roger Worman, and Dawn, wife of Brian Lutz.
