Obituary for Kay Weaver

Kay Weaver
Kay Weaver, 89,
quietly passed away as a common and humble man
on the morning of Thursday, November 16, 2017,
and was the last surviving member of his family.

Born April 15,1928, in Bremond, Texas on a country prairie,
his parents Kay and Tina Weaver
were corn and cotton farmers during the Great Depression.
It was on the meager, struggling family farm
that he learned many lessons.
Hard work, taking initiative
and sharing in the simple pleasures of life
would form his character.

A gentle man with a soft spoken nature,
he was most comfortable in a warm, plaid flannel shirt
and with his valentine not far from his gleaming glance.
Pained by conflict, he often spoke of love
and putting aside past conflicts for the greater good.

At the unthinkable age of fifteen,
he left Bremond and everything he had known
to travel by train to Houston in search of a better life
but he never forgot from where he came.

An assembly line maintenance operator,
he worked for Continental Can Company
and retired after forty three years
of dedicated service.
Because working conditions were loud and dirty,
he became President of The Hogmaster’s Club.
Sadly, few of his friends or fellow piglets remain.

At nearly twenty one, he met and fell in love
with a stunning young girl,
a classic 1950’s girl,
Virginia Billie Ann Krysinski.
He spent the next sixty six years
dancing polkas with his favorite partner
and showering her with goodness and kindness,
as she also did for him.

In a simple ceremony
in the rectory of
Christ the King Catholic Church
in the Houston Heights,
they became husband and wife
and eventually lived nearby
in a garage apartment
where Ronald and Ray were born.


Several years later,
they purchased their first and only home.
Many photos of special occasions
and their daily lives together
can easily be found throughout the house
and with enthusiasm he shared them
with relatives and strangers.

Proud and respectful
of the family home which
he worked so hard to create,
he enjoyed gazing
at a well-manicured lawn
once filled with caladiums
planted by his wife and children.

Favorite pastimes included
playing billiards and dominoes,
and collecting pigs.
He prized his small collection
of ticking wall clocks,
watches and pocket knives.

He enjoyed a cool fall breeze;
the comfort of a rocking chair;
mom's turkey, cornbread dressing,
and homemade pies;
and listening to the sounds
of chirping birds
calling for his son, Scott.

Kay and Virginia
brought five uniquely different boys into the world
and were given six grandchildren
and one great grandchild.
As a tribute to their father
for a lifetime of memories
and the values he taught them,
his sons avidly follow the Bremond football team
and attend games throughout the state of Texas.

Mr. Weaver is preceded in death by his parents;
four sisters-
Irene Dolney, Hazel Towns,
Wilma Kelley and Tina Bell Weaver;
and two brothers-
Little Oscar Weaver and William Weaver.
His second son, Ray Anthony Weaver,
whom he missed greatly, passed away in 2001.

He leaves behind his wife
and their first and fourth sons,
Ronald Wayne Weaver and Paul Scott Weaver.

Third son, Mark Alan Weaver,
and wife Mary Beth,
gave him three grandchildren -
Patrick Alan Weaver,
Sara Beth Weaver and Brian Mark Weaver.

Youngest and fifth son, Jason Brian Weaver,
is also the father of three grandchildren -
Taylor Kay Moore, Nathan Brian Weaver
and Madisen Jeaneen Weaver.

His grandson, Nathan Brian Weaver,
and Michelle Blackwell are the parents
of his only great grandchild,
Hayden Ray Weaver.
