February 23, 1948 January 10, 2020
Robert "Gary" Weaver was born February 23, 1948 and went to join the Lord on January 10, 2020. He grew up in the Colorado Springs area until he graduated from Palmer High School and joined the Navy. During his service, he served on the Shangri-La and later with the Seabees until his retirement in 1986. He worked for Colorado Springs Utility from 1983 to 2006. Along with his city employment he worked as a pipe fitter from 1974 until 1983. Gary was an avid outdoors man with hunting, fishing, and sight-seeing throughout his life. He was never short of a long tale. Gary is survived by his aunt Ruth; brother Larry (Donna); sister Leanne (Rick); 3 children: Melody, Loy, and Vicky; and 3 grand-children: Ashleigh (Ryan), Justin, and Thomas. He was preceded in death by his parents: Bob and Lavona, sisters Judy and Lois, and grandson Jerald. Celebration of life to be scheduled for February 22, 2020 and in lieu of flowers, Gary's family asks that donations be made to either the American Cancer Society or Stella's Wish Foundation.

I met Gary in '93 when I hired on at Nixon. We worked together off and on for 6 years and I'll always remember the stories and laughter when he would share one of his life lessons, it made a long 12 hour shift go by quickly. Work is so much better when you enjoy the people you work with. Rest in Peace Gary...until we meet again...

I butted heads with my Dad a lot when I was growing up. It wasn't until after I became an adult that we found common ground and built a solid, loving relationship. He was and always be the rock that I leaned on. He was always there for me, gave me solid advice, and in the last couple of years we even shared tears together. I must've made an impression on him in how I cared for him, it seemed like he bragged about me a lot. I kept telling him "Dad, don't put me on a pedestal. As clumsy as I am, I liable to fall and it's a long way down." I love you Daddy and I miss you very much. I'm doing my best to stay strong, but it's really hard. I'm glad we had the time together that we did. I'm just glad that you're not in pain anymore. It hurt so bad to see you hurting so much. Rest easy and until we meet again, I'll do my best to live my life to the fullest.

Weaver and I have been friends since we served on the Shangri-La together in the mid-1960s. He was a true friend and I will miss our conversations together. During our Hurricanes here in Texas he never failed to call me and see if we were OK and offer his help. Not everyone would do that. No doubt, he would have helped if needed. That's the kind of man he was. I will miss him. God bless you Weave. Rest in Peace.

I worked with Gary in Operations at Ray Nixon Power Plant. Thanks for always being a breath of fresh air and making shifts fly by with one of a kind stories! Your spirit will live on forever through the people that you've impacted. There are no words that can heal but may God bless your family through this difficult time

Met Gary through his sister Judy many years ago. If it wasn't for him keeping at me to apply at CSU, I wouldn't be retired as I am now; for that I'm truly thankful to Gary. I always had a great time when I was around the Weaver family. Always enjoying themselves and always had coffee on. So glad Gary knew the Lord as his savior. Rest in peace, Gary.

Beautiful Fall day in Rainbow Valley!! Nov. 2019
Gary was a great brother. He was my best friend, and support system.

We had an extremely special bond, and for that, I am grateful. I'll cherish each and every single one of our memories. I can't help but smile thinking about the millions of happy memories that we had together: family vacations, road trips, target practicing. You are always right beside me in my best memories and I have learned so much from you.

Thank you for being the best brother a girl could have. Until we meet again. I Love You!!

My buddy will be missed but I know one day we will see you again. I have know Gary all the years we work at Nixon. Then we continue our friendship into retirement. I am so sorry that I will not be able to attend his celebrations but I will pray for the family during these difficult times. I am glad that he is home with our lord and savior and not suffering from cancer no more.

Daddy,
You were always there for me. I truly appreciate the love you always gave, the words of advisement, and the shoulder you always offered. I'm glad that you are no longer in pain. It hurt to let you go, but I will eventually be ok.

Love,
Mel
