Richard G. Weaver, 76, of 567 Springville Rd., New Holland died on Monday, October 14, 2019 at Lancaster General Hospital.
Born in Terre Hill, he was the son of the late Rufus and Ella Mae (Good) Weaver.
Surviving are two sons: R. Michael married to Sheri Weaver, Gap and Stephen D. married to Lisa Weaver, Lititz, three grandchildren, his former spouse Joyce (Stauffer) Weaver, and six siblings: Mildred G. Weaver, David G. Weaver, Martha G. Nolt, James G. Weaver, Daniel G. Weaver and Miriam G. Weaver.
He was preceded in death by a stillborn son, Dwayne Scott Weaver and a sister Ruth Ann Groff.
Most of his working life was spent as a carpenter with Weber Builders and he retired from Cocalico School District, working in buildings and grounds maintenance. As a carpenter, Richard paid attention to detail and specialized in the trim finishing aspects of home construction. He took on some big construction projects in addition to his job. In 1977, he worked with Joyce and other family members as well as colleagues from various trades to build a home for his family on Kramer Mill Rd., Denver. In 1990, Richard coordinated volunteers to build an addition to the Blue Ball Church of the Brethren. He also served as a trustee at the church for many years. Richard enjoyed tractor pulls and NASCAR racing. Spending time with his grandchildren brought a smile to his face.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, October 19, 2019 at 10 a.m. at the Blue Ball Church of the Brethren, 1005 E. Main St., Blue Ball. The family will receive friends immediately following the service. Interment will be private in the adjoining church cemetery.

My husband and his former wife are siblings, and so from the 1970s until the 1990s, we often stayed with Richard and his family when we visited from Virginia. Richard had a kind heart and I always remembered him helping his wife clean up the kitchen, which was really unusual and impressive in those days. At night we played games and he was always such a lot of fun. We always felt so welcomed and only have good memories of our time with him.
We are so deeply sorry for your profound loss. May God bless his children Mike and Steve, and their families and their children to every generation. May all those that mourn his loss be greatly comforted that Richard is in the arms of God and he will never sorrow again.

My first memories of Richard began with him coming to our house in that royal blue ‘66 Mustang to see my sister. He was always warm but a little shy and focused on his mission. I’ll never forget that wedding in 1971 under the grape arbor in our back yard, his hospitality when Linda, Aaron and I were house guests visiting from VA, and building our toy collections. As a brother-in-law, I became impressed with the earnest, simple, and always purposeful ways he went about all he set out to accomplish. Richard often sprinkled gentle wit in our conversations but never at anyone’s expense. We take comfort in knowing his work on earth, often difficult and trying, is done; and that he answered God’s call to come home. Linda and I send our deepest sympathies to those he left behind for now: to my Dear Sister Joyce, and Nephews Mike, and Steve. You and your families are tops in our thoughts and prayers right now.
