Carl Wayne Weaver, 79, passed away on Thursday, February 18, 2021 at his home in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He was born in Findlay, Ohio on January 2, 1942, to the late Mack Hayden Weaver and Annabelle Ruth (Wehrle) Weaver, along with brother, John M. Weaver of North Carolina; sister, Mary Lee (Weaver) Morris of Texas; and brother, Roy Weaver (deceased) of Indiana.

Carl married Patti Jo (Sherrill) Weaver on November 10, 1984, sharing 36 years together building a life around their children and grandchildren. Many of their fondest family memories were created during trips to Casey Key, Florida, and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Carl worked for Food Marketing as a truck driver for 51 years with over 2 million safely driven miles. Although he enjoyed retirement, Carl did not sit still. He utilized his Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) to volunteer with Parkview Hospital, driving their mobile mammogram unit. He continued to maintain his CDL and worked with Indiana Auto Auction and then drove for Penske Trucking until his passing. Carl loved to dance the jitterbug, and was known for his outgoing personality as it was often said that he “never met a stranger.” He also loved having coffee and breakfast with old classmates and staying in touch with lifelong friends. Carl enjoyed watching sports, was a die-hard Chicago Cubs fan and a lifelong IU Basketball enthusiast. Although he was a fan of many sports, his greatest joy was watching his sons and grandsons play baseball and football. Carl is survived by his wife, adult children, grandchildren and a great-granddaughter.

A private family funeral service will be held. Visitation will be from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm on Tuesday, February 23, 2021 at D.O. McComb and Sons Pine Valley Park Funeral Home (1320 East Dupont Road, Fort Wayne).

Carl’s patriotism was evident through his passion for politics and his admiration and support of our Veterans. Memorial contributions in Carl's honor may be made to Shepherd’s House of Fort Wayne, or Honor Flight.

I had the "pleasure," of dealing with Carl, the first time, as a Food Marketing Semi Truck Driver. When I became Receiving Manager, in June, 1985, at Rogers Markets.
I have known, he and Patti, since December, 1998, as they are a neighbor of my sister, Cindie Vanderwall.
I had the "pleasure," again of dealing with Carl, as the Purchasing Manager 2016, at General Petroleum. Carl would fill in for picking up Exxon Mobil Orders, from Chicago, IL. While doing this he was mentoring our current Semi Driver Shawn Garman.
A sincere, "thank you," to Carl Weaver, for being a great person!!

I’m so sad to hear the news of Carl’s passing. He was so funny and was such a hard worker. His wife Patti, took very good care of him.

My husband and I did trade shows with Patti and Carl, Carl always stopped by our booth to chat a bit. I always envied him because he was so good driving trucks and trailers. I recently asked him if he would teach me how to drive an 18 wheeler. His response was, “GOOD LUCK.”

I value the friendship of his wife, Patti. We will be forever best of friends. I will always help her through the tough times that lay ahead for her.

I’m grateful that Ryan lives minutes away and Brandon is just a phone call away.

This couple are loved by many. Carl will certainly be missed.

So sorry for your loss. Always enjoyed talking with Carl at the NSHS reunion breakfast. Has been a year. Lots of laughs visiting with him at the Boat Show or Grabill Fair and eating his caramel corn. Just one nice guy to be around. He will be missed.

The dad I only got to know in the past few years. So very sad that getting to know you better has now come to an end. I'm so thankful for those times I and the children got to overlap with you, hear your laugh, watch you work hard in retirement, eat the pop corn you and Patti generously shoved into our hands, and see your smile when we dropped by for a spontaneous visit. I'm equally thankful for those few meals to which you treated me so we could talk politics, the past, spiritual truths, and family. You will be missed.

The Ft Wayne boat show won’t be the same without Carl across the isle. He was a hard worker and what a personality. Always had a story to tell that brought a smile to my face. What a great guy. I and the Zimmerman families will never forget him. We are so sorry for you and your families loss Patty. RIP Carl.

The best neighbors ever. Carl and Patti were always there for everyone. Carl had the best sense of humor and was a great help to me and my company especially when I went through an acrimonious divorce. Always thought of everyone’s needs. He will be missed. Patti and Ryan, our deepest sympathy. We are here for you. Love you❤️🙏🏻
