Obituary -- (Findagrave.com):

Husband of Mildred Jane GAMBELL Weaver.

Son of John Harvey Weaver & Eulala A. CATHCART Weaver Graver (buried at Lincoln Memorial Cemetery, Lincoln, Nebraska where Chester once worked.)

Father of Vernon Crandall Weaver, Allen Neale Weaver, Sr, Marion Arlene WEAVER Kucera, Beverly June WEAVER Hansen, & James Chester Weaver.

Brother of Mabel WEAVER Neale & Myrtle WEAVER Maag.

In the early 1930s, Chester moved his family from Lincoln, Nebraska to Cedar Rapids, Iowa to assume the duties of sexton of the newly-opened Cedar Memorial cemetery. Later, he was the sexton of Linwood cemetery, Cedar Rapids.

Chester eventually became the caretaker of Lakeside Manor in (rural) Marion, Iowa (c.1960-1968) after St. Luke Hospital in Cedar Rapids acquired the property and remodeled it for use as a residence for their interns. Lakeside, a lovely, secluded, wooded estate, was a wonderful place for me, my brothers & sisters, and my cousins to grow up, with weekly visits of the Weaver clan to see grandma & grandpa on Sunday afternoons/evenings, occasionally during the summer, and on holidays.

Chester served his country in WWI.

He was buried in November 1970 at Oak Hill Cemetery, Cedar Rapids, Linn Co., IA, Findagrave #8747647.
