    Notes 
    • Donald Weaver

      Don J. Weaver was born on December 10, 1929, in Duncan, Okla. to Leroy and Viola Weaver. Don graduated from Gainesville High School in 1947.

      Don had an interest in the medical field and therefore went on to serve in the United States Navy in the medical field for 3 years. Upon his honorable discharge, Don chose Patricia Settle to be his wife on Feb. 24, 1952.

      After serving his country, he then chose a career in the health care industry by working for the Gainesville Hospital and then took a position as the administrator for Coleman Hospital.

      Don then took a position with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas in their Provider Relations Division as a Provider Relations Representative, which encompassed calling upon hospitals. Through this 23-year career, Don made many lifetime friends at Blue Cross and as well as hospital personnel. He was greatly respected by his employees and peers. You could count on Don to have all of the answers to any issues you many have. He had a wealth of knowledge about hospital billing practices along with a great memory.

      After retirement, Don enjoyed his farm in Saint Jo, Texas, and invited everyone that knew him and Pat to come and visit at the farm. They hosted many cookouts which we all enjoyed and now look back on as such happy events that we shared with this couple.

      Don was called home on November 30 after a 3-week stay at Presbyterian Hospital in Denton, Texas. He will be greatly missed by his family, Jim and Susan Weaver; grandchildren, Jake, Alex, and Nick; great-grandchildren, Olivia and Alexis. Don is also survived by his wonderful mother, Viola. Don's death leaves a great void in each of our lives and as we continue on with our lives, we can all stop and think of the humor Don had and enjoy a happy thought.

      The family will receive friends at the Geo. J. Carroll & Son Funeral Home from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. today.

      A Graveside Service will be conducted at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2007, at Fairview Cemetery, officiated by Rev. Rob Spencer. Services are under the direction of Geo. J. Carroll & Son Funeral Home.
