Jack Terrence Weir

Obituary

Jack Terrence Weir recently celebrated 50 years of matrimony with his wife Shirley this summer. Family and Friends celebrated his 76 years of a full life with a wake held at his favorite watering hole, Toucans, on Mexico Beach last Sunday Nov. 11th.
Jack was a retired Air Force Gunner and peace-time Plans & Scheduler who was a Korean and Vietnam Veteran. He had been playing tennis his last day in this life. Jack enjoyed lifting weights, swimming and traveling; he was a regular at Irish Festivals and annual Irish Music Cruises. An imposing man, his tanned shoulders often carried world issues upon them; although his serious demeanor belied a quick, dry sense of humor and irony. Jack's patriotism and passions defined him. He was a voracious reader, Clancy Brothers' fan, nature lover, snazzy dresser and ALWAYS immaculately groomed.
Jack Weir was born in Wooster Ohio on 3/01/31 to Lynn Weir and Sarah Miller-Weir who preceded him in death; his sister Patricia Martin also preceded him in death. Jack aka Terry is survived by his wife and two daughters Kellie West and Kathleen Sanders, their spouses, Steve West and John Patrick Sanders, and grandchildren, Erik West, Karlie West and Aiden Sanders as well as great grand children Harley and Cheyenne West. He leaves cousins, dozens of friends and a cat behind.
Memorial donations may be made to Covenant Hospice or the charity of your choice. In honor of Jack, have a peanut butter sandwich and conserve water.
