John Leo Weakland was born in Portland, Oregon in 1958.

He married his high school sweetheart and the love of his life, Patty, in 1977. John loved aviation and had a successful career beginning in Oregon and hiring on with United Airlines in 1984 as a mechanic. United took him and his family to Colorado in 1987 where he climbed the management ladder to become an Operating Manager of Maintenance. John’s wish was to die at home and he passed away at home on February 15 surrounded by his wife Patty, son Bryan, daughter Erica and grandson G. John was a kind, gentle, quiet and loving husband, father and friend. He was so loved by so many. He would do anything for his family, and he did.

He is survived by wife Patty, their four children; Mark, Bryan, Andrew and Erica, and one grandson; Gary, whom he called “G”. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating in John’s name to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society at and sign up to be a bone marrow donor at

John was the kindest boy when I was in high school. He was gentle with everyone. Perhaps a family member would consider sending me an email for more stories about him.

I met Bryan 10 years ago in Paris and we are still best friends, even if he is in NYC and me in France.
I had the chance to meet his family during a stay in Paris. they had come to visit the city of love as a family.

We had dinner in an italian restaurant called ´´La Villa del Padre ´´ on 23/10/2014
I had the chance to chat with John, I discovered a man who loved his wife and family deeply, a man of unparalleled generosity.
I was honored to have to share this table with you John, you were kind of my American daddy, because I shared more things with you at dinner than with my real dad.

You were loved by everyone and you were a great man, I would like to be like you when I am older.

I prayed for you, I've been to Montmartre, Basilica of the Sacré Cœur , and you know what? I know you shine up high and watch over your loved ones. rest in peace we love you as much as there are stars in the universe. Bilal

Memories... Came across this photo this morning of when my brother, John, came to visit me and we went for a ride Carmen and my Harleys!! The good times live on in our memories. In this case, a starry moonlight summer nite ride down Marine Drive with the river beside us after enjoying an evening dinner outside on a patio overlooking the river. Those were the days!! Love you, Brotherman. Your brother, Dan.

One of our favorite memories - the annual family fishing trip at Garibaldi, Oregon. This was at a lunch stop on our way to meet the rest of the family and friends. A wonderful time and may Brotherman be with us in each and every cast of our fishing poles! Until we see you in Heaven and we are together forever. 💛 ♥

There are moments which mark your life. Moments when you realize nothing will ever be the same and time is divided into two parts- before this, and after this.

Dad I miss you more than I could ever put into words. Your death has left me with a hole in my heart. I wish we could have had more time. But I will be forever grateful for the years I had with you. I was your little girl, your Rae, and you were my hero, the greatest man I will ever know.

I will cherish the many memories we had. Our father/daughter vacations, meeting your grandson for the first time and pinning me at my nursing school graduation.

I was honored to be your bone marrow donor. I would have done anything and everything to have saved you. I am so angry that cancer took you from us. But I know you are in Heaven, free from all the pain and suffering you endured this past year.

I am heartbroken for everything that you will miss. But I know that even though you are gone, you are really not that far away. In the words of Catherine Prutton, you are in that “in between bit, that space where sky meets sea, in the whispers of the trees and the edges of my dreams. Close enough to almost touch but slightly out of reach. In the moon and in the stars, but never really far, and always, always, you are there inside my heart.”

I love you dad and I will miss you forever.

I will always remember John as being very thoughtful and kind. He had great advice for me when I needed it. He went out of his way to have my back when times were rough. Thank you John, you will be missed.
