Jerry Wayne Weaver
June 21, 1956 – April 9, 2022
Jerry Wayne Weaver, 65, of Mechanicsville, VA passed away peacefully at his home on Saturday, April 9, 2022 after a courageous battle with cancer.
Jerry worked in retail management most of his career and was highly respected by all who worked with and for him. He was a hard worker with high standards and always performed at his very best. Jerry was also a self-taught sailor. He loved being on his sailboat and would’ve gladly lived on it if his circumstances were different. Jerry was a family man, he always put his family first no matter what. He was a diehard Tennessee Volunteers fan and could usually be found wearing orange in some way. We will make him proud by wearing orange (almost) as often as he did.
Jerry will be sorely missed by his wife, Jennifer and two sons, Wesley and Bentley. He is also survived by his daughter, Lydia of Petersburg; stepson, Lee of Mechanicsville; stepdaughter, Emily of Huntington, WV; mother, Mary Anne; brothers, David (Sherry), Ricky (Stephanie), Robin (Kerry), and John, all of Lewisburg, TN; and several nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. He was preceded in death by his father, sister, and stepson.
Jerry wished to be cremated.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, April 16, 2022, at New Song Church, 7450 Colts Neck Rd, Mechanicsville, VA 23111.
Memorials may be made in his honor to New Song Church or to his children.
Sorry for your loss 💔 🙏
Without a doubt, Jerry loved his family, bragged on them often, worked hard, had tremendous passion and pride in accomplishments at work, loved TN, loved a sail boat and loved being on the water. Anyone who knew him knew all of that because he wore it all on his sleeve. It was hard not to be smiling and /or laughing after spending some time with Jerry. Rarely a dull moment with Jerry.
Jerry was a awesome guy and friend. I was a classmate and neighbor of Jerry’s who kicked around the neighborhood with and had a lot of laughs. Always smiles and laughs with Jerry, of course he was voted class comedian or clown however sounds better these days. He also had a great, generous and hardworking family. Jerry tried to make a pet out of a wild raccoon once, that was so funny. He will be sorely missed.
I graduated with high school with Jerry and consider him a good friend! Prayers for his family.
Thoughts and prayers to all the family and friends.Jerry was a cousin and the times I was around him he was always so positive and enjoyed his life.May God give strength and peace to his family.We have all been blessed by his presence with us not only in his professional life but his personal life .God bless to all.
