It is with the mixed emotions of heartfelt sadness and deep joy that we, the family of Robert Allen Weaver, a devoted husband, loving father, proud grandpa and great-grandpa, announce the news of his passing from our midst and on to his eternal reward.  Following a long illness, Bob died late Tuesday evening, August 8, 2017, at the age of 81.
Born in Marietta, Ohio, July 5, 1936, a son to the late Lisle C. and Alvena P. (Woodford) Weaver-Arnold, Bob graduated from Marietta High School with the Class of 1954.  Soon afterward he met and married a Massillon girl and he and Tootie, his bride of 61 years, made their home on the city’s southeast side.  Together they raised their family while Bob worked in production planning for the former Enduro Stainless Division of Republic Steel.  A man of quiet faith, Bob’s life was centered on his wife and family.  A gifted athlete in younger days, he was a standout basketball player.  He enjoyed watching and listening to the Tigers, the Buckeyes and all of the Cleveland sports teams.  A NASCAR fan, he also loved traveling and camping with the family and more recently, enjoyed Karaoke singing – as the star of “The Bob Weaver Show.”  He particularly enjoyed the old Country songs from the 1960’s, as he said, “When country was country and not pop music.”
Predeceased by his parents; brother, Lyle E. Weaver; sister, Lois A. Weaver Swaney; and a niece, Linda L. Swaney Ward; Bob is survived by his wife, Winnona M. “Tootie” (Friend) Weaver; his son, William K. “Bill” (Gene Stine) Weaver; daughters, Karen J. Boatright, Robin A. (Carl) Lantzer and Patricia M. “Patti” Gurule, all of Massillon.  Also surviving are 10 grandchildren, 14 – soon to be 15 great-grandchildren; a niece, Sandra K. Swaney (Jay) Charlton, of Perry Twp; and a nephew, Terry (Linda) Weaver, of Jacksonville, Florida, all of whom he loved very much.
We will gather to celebrate the life of Bob Weaver at 1:00 p.m. Saturday, August 12, 2017, at Atkinson Feucht Hare Funeral Home in Massillon.  Dad’s friend, Dr. Cecil Thayer will bring the message and burial will follow at St. Joseph Parish Cemetery.  Family and friends may call at the funeral home Saturday from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.  
The family wishes to thank Drs. Jennifer Tarr and Inderjeet Brar, the Emergency Dept., ICU, 2100 and 2200 Unit Care Teams at Affinity Medical Center for the dedicated and compassionate care that Bob received.

We are sad to hear of my Uncle Bob's passing but take joy that he is in Heaven with his mother and father and family now. Uncle Bob and Aunt Tootie mean a lot to me. His brother, Lyle, was my father and after he and my mother divorced when I was a baby, I had no contact with my family in Ohio as my mother returned to Florida with me and my brother. It was Uncle Bob and Aunt Tootie who took the effort many years later to look for me and contact me. They called and later drove to Florida to meet me and bring me photos of my father and the family. They later entertained us when we visited them in Ohio. They didn't have to bother doing all of this but it shows what kind of man he was and I will never forget it! Rest in peace Uncle Bob!.

Dear Toot, Billy (Gene), Robin (Carl), Karen and Patti,

Our deepest sympathy on the passing of Bob. I'm sure he and my Dad (Uncle Junie) are enjoying a beer and telling stories. I will always treasure the times we shared at the River listening to Bob sing karaoke during "The Bob Weaver" show around the campfire. Riding the scooter - yes even with the flat tire! - boating and the Sternwheel festival. I will miss the teasing and me saying " I'm gonna tell my Dad"! Rest in peace Bob.

Love and Prayers,

Scampy, Kelly, Andy, Kayden, Ryland, Kinsely, & Avery Willig, Kirk (April) Charlotte and Zavier
