Dwight Weaver, 67, passed away quickly on October 23, shortly after arriving at his winter home in Hudson, Florida. He was a true “Yankee Doodle Dandy”, born on the 4 th of July and grew up with his sister; Lynda Koch, and Brother; Richard Weaver on Dudley Pond in Cochituate, MA along with his pack of lifelong friends. He spent most summers in York Beach, Maine, renovating cottages with Dad, surfing, and having fun with his uncles, aunts, and many cousins. He followed his father’s footsteps and joined the Marines right after high school, stationed at New River and Camp LeJune, honorably discharged with the rank of Lance Corporal. Dwight owned and worked for a wide variety of trade businesses in MA
throughout his twenties.
He met and married his wife Janet Rimkunas Weaver 38 years ago and they settled in Wells, ME. Dwight worked for Shaw’s Supermarket Dist. Ctr for 33 years, all while building Mud Meadow Farm, chasing animals, and repairing the greenhouse. Dwight and Janet raised 3 children: Sarah J Gagnon, Stephanie M Weaver, and Harold W Weaver. This fun loving, party man became a “Dad kind of guy”, teaching them essentials like how to change brakes, build a lamp, and troubleshoot a leaky toilet. Passing on a work ethic and devotion to family was a source of pride. He loved showing them as much of this beautiful country as he could, organizing epic train trips, driving miles out of the way to see the world’s largest gnome or Rubik’s cube. He cherished his short time as “Grumpy” with his only grandchild, Liam Gagnon.
Dwight never completely lost his fun-loving party side, however. To meet him once was to never forget him. Family, old friends and new friends gathered or just stopped by the many pig roasts, the Mud Meadow Tiki bar, or the porch of Weaver’s Way Farm to visit, laugh, debate, have a rum punch, and hear a colorful story or two. In keeping with his wishes, Dwight will be cremated and his remains scattered in various locations that he held dear, finally continuing his journey off Nubble Light with his parents, Harold W. Weaver, and Esther M. Perry Weaver. There will be a gathering/party in his honor in the Spring of 2024 to celebrate “Big D’s “love of life, laughter, and family.
