Richard Lamar “Dick” Weaver, 78, of Stevens, went home to be with the Lord on Jan. 13, 2017, at his residence, after a lengthy illness.

Born in Blue Ball to the late Hershey and Lillian (Sensenig) Weaver on Oct. 25, 1938, Dick lived his entire life in Lancaster County. He is survived by his wife, Mary Lou (Usner), with whom he celebrated 58 years of marriage last April.

Dick was a member of Grace Point Church of the Nazarene. He was a truck driver for more than 30 years, as well as a part-time member of the Clay Township police force. Dick was a long-time volunteer of the Durlach-Mount Airy Fire Company, and held the position of president for a period.

An avid outdoorsman, Dick enjoyed going to the cabin with friends, hunting, and spending mornings fishing on his boat. Throughout his life, he traveled often, and was a devoted Philadelphia sports fan.

In addition to his wife, Dick is survived by his three children: Donna, wife of Mike Geesey, of Leola; Jodi, wife of the late Jim Reddig, of Denver; Scott, husband of Kelly (Kline), of Ephrata; four grandchildren: Tara Groff, Ryan Thomas, Courtney and Danika Weaver; three great-grandchildren: Mason, Owen, and Ethan. Dick is also survived by his siblings: Elaine Weaver; Janet, wife of Merv Gingrich; Donald, husband of Jeanette (Heller); Delmar, husband of Linda (Ginder).

The family would like to thank the medical professionals for the love and care offered to Dick over the past year, especially the homecare nurses and doctors from Hospice and Community Care of Lancaster for their care during the past several months.

A visitation will be held Thursday, Jan. 19, from 5 to 7 p.m., at Grace Point Church of the Nazarene, 110 Durlach Road, Ephrata; directly followed by a service at 7 p.m. Interment will be private.
