One of my favorite professors. A real genuine person who always had something witty to say, real quick with his humor. R.I.P. professor Weaver.

A loss to me, his friends and family. Alan was a dear friend for many years and was truly one of a kind. He was funny and sad all at the same time. Both the world and I shall miss him. Rest in peace for you are now in a far better and more glorious Place.
