Weaver, Sr., Ben A.

November 21, 1970 - January 15, 2015

‘And can it be that in a world so full and busy the loss of one creature
makes a void so wide and deep that nothing but the width and depth of
eternity can fill it up.’ ~ Charles Dickens

Ben Alan Weaver, Sr passed away at his home in Irving, Texas on Thursday,
January 15, 2015.  He was 44 years old.

Ben was born on November 21, 1970 to Ray and Kay Weaver and grew up in
Irving.  He attended Nimitz High School and enlisted in the US Army.  Ben
enjoyed being outdoors, working on anything from audio speakers and cars,
and helping family and friends with anything they needed.  He always
helped anyone unconditionally. Ben loved making people smile and laugh; not
many have met him that cannot tell countless stories of his humor and
laughter –  and last, but not least, Ben was a die-hard Dallas Cowboys fan.

He is survived by his parents (Wylie), his son, Ben Weaver, Jr (Irving);
his brother, David Weaver (Arlington); and younger sisters, Hannah Byrnes
(Summersville, WV) and Sarah Kalaj (Wylie); 2 nephews and 5 nieces.  Ben
is also survived by his beloved dog, Achilles, or as he lovingly referred
to as Pibbles.

Ben will always be remembered for the laughter he brought into our lives.

A celebration of Ben’s life will be held and announced at a later date.

Ben was such a character. I have so many silly memories with Ben. He could make me laugh SO hard that I cried. I loved Ben and will never forget him.

B.D I will always love you. I feel stupid for finding out this late. Even though I never actually met you since I was less than a week old I feel like I knew you as well as I could through our Facebook chats and the occasional phone calls we had. You helped Me learn so much about myself and you were my rock at many times when I was down. Even though I have my parents who I love very much, you were always an outlet for me where I knew I could tell you anything. I only wish I could have got to meet you, but I don’t want that to haunt me. I still haven’t really come to terms that you are gone yet. While I’m not a religious person I want you to live through me, my life from this point on will be a homage to you. I know you had high hopes for me, you put me In the best situation possible by finding my parents and I want to do you proud. I really hope you knew how much you meant to me. I hope wherever you are that you know that I’m going to do you proud. I love you so much. RIP. You will always be alive in my memory for as long as I live.

I was so shocked when his mother called me. He was always so full of life and such a sweet and funny little boy when he was growing up. Please tell Ben Jr. that he can call on me for anything at any time.

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
