William "Bill" Weaver Obituary

William (Bill) L. Weaver passed away October 13, 2023 at Dove House, Westminster, MD. Born in Glenville NC on May 27, 1933, he was the middle son of James H. Weaver and Elsie (Crow) Weaver. He was the beloved husband of Lois Weaver, his wife of 69 years.

He graduated from Taneytown High School in 1952. He studied illustrating and cartooning through a correspondence course with Art Instruction, Inc., instructed in cartooning by a very young and not yet famous Charles Schulz. He also attended Baltimore College of Commerce.

Bill spent 50 successful years in commercial art, beginning at 3M Company Highway Signs, where he received excellent training in pattern making, illustrating and screen printing. From there he moved on to electric signage and retail and commercial fleet graphics. Some of his original designs are still in use: Bowman Trucking, Tevis Energy, Utz Potato Chips, Modern Comfort and the Baugher’s Apple Man.

A lifelong learner, he began taking private fine art lessons several years prior to retirement, continuing lessons for 10 years. He was a member of the Carroll County Artists Guild and participated in many shows. He and Lois enjoyed traveling to Europe, China, Australia and the Caribbean. His many travel photos became the subjects of his beautiful oil paintings. Bill’s talents also extended to restoring old houses and building several new ones.

He was a member of the Westminster Church of the Brethren where he took tender care of the roses for many years. He also served on the Property Committee.

His family was the pride and joy of his life. In addition to his wife Lois, he is survived by daughter Jo Ann and son-in-law John Landon, grandson William Landon and wife Kathryn Lerner, and brother James Weaver and wife Helga. He was predeceased by brother Wade Weaver.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, October 28, 2023 at 2 p.m. at the Westminster Church of the Brethren, 19 Bond St., Westminster, MD 21157 officiated by his pastor, Rev. Glenn McCrickard.
