OBITUARY

Keith Alan Weyer

July 17, 1956July 2, 2019

Keith Alan Weyer of Newburgh, IN, loving husband and father to three children, passed away on July 2, 2019 at the age of 62. He was born on July 17, 1956 in Ferdinand, IN to Sylvester (Johnny) and Geneva (Spayd) Weyer.

He graduated from Forest Park High School of Ferdinand, IN in 1974 and then received a Bachelor of Science in Business and Marketing from Indiana University in 1979. It was as a fraternity brother of Sigma Phi Epsilon that he developed his passion for biking and sailing, which followed him throughout his life. Upon graduation, he went on to have a successful 30-year career with The Pantry, which took him to Murfreesboro, TN and Charleston, SC before finally settling down in Newburgh, IN.

The center of Keith’s life was his beloved wife, Theresa, and their three children: Brett, Brock and Audrey, to whom he was an amazing father. Keith was very involved with the Boy Scouts of America and played a key role in helping both Brett and Brock achieve the rank of Eagle Scout. They attained the Grand Slam status by participating in all four high adventure camps—Philmont, Sea Base, Northern Tier and Summit. He and Audrey often took last minute trips to Memorial, IU and Purdue games when he wasn’t driving her to volleyball practice. Many happy family weekends were spent boating, hiking, sailing or camping.

Keith joined the Evansville Bicycle Club in 1986 and was an avid cyclist. He served as President, Treasurer and Great Pumpkin Metric co-chair during his tenure with the club and achieved club mileage leader three consecutive years. He had many great adventures with this group.

Anyone who knew Keith knew that he always had a story to tell.

He is survived by his wife of 22 years, Theresa; their three children, Brett, Brock and Audrey; brothers, Eric (Jane) and Bruce Weyer (Noelle); sister, Beth Markowski (Dave); and ten nieces and nephews.

Keith was preceded in death by his parents.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held 10:00 a.m. Monday, July 8, 2019, at St. Mary Catholic Church, 613 Cherry Street, Evansville, IN.

My deepest sympathies to Keith's family he was my boss for many years with the Pantry. He was my immediate boss the last years and probably appreciated him the most during those times.

I was so saddened to read about Keith this morning. He and Theresa were so welcoming when we started with St. John years ago, and I got to know both of them through our kids activities. Keith was such a devoted dad and husband, and never failed to entertain with a story or anecdote. He will be greatly missed. Prayers for him and his family.

What a great person and family man. I will never forget his smiles and great times. He will be truly missed, but I’m sure he’s up in Heaven looking down over us🙏🏻

It is with a heavy heart that Sharon and I post this. We first met Keith on the 1989 edition of TRIRI, which began a solid friendship for many years. There are so many cycling "Keith" stories to share, we don't know where to begin. We did some crazy bike rides on the spur to which Keith would say, "It's another EBC adventure." To Theresa and kids, Keith will always hold a special place in our hearts.

I will always remember Keith as being so committed to his family! He enjoyed seeing his kids succeed and loved being a part of every aspect of their lives! He did always have a story to tell and then some. Keith will be dearly missed ! I pray for Theresa and her kids and the family that they find strength through God and their dear friends who want so much to support them during this difficult time. I am so sorry for your loss ! You have my deepest sympathy!
