Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

Kansas born, Chuck (James C.) Weaver Jr. passed away on September 23rd, 2009 at the age of 60.  He was a pastor, a musician, brother, son and father.  He was a great father and man full of faith.  He endured many struggles after a stroke left him paralyzed in 1998.  He stayed with us for another 11 1/2 years to watch his kids grow, reconnect with his daughter and become an extremely proud grandfather.   We will cherish and remember him forever.

Chuck was a great guitarist, trumpet player and singer.  He would write song lyrics and poems on all sorts of paper and receipts.  He played in a band with his long time friend and Pastor Terry Matthews before becoming a Christian.  After he became a Christian he devoted his talents to God and teaching others.

Dad loved history, especially about the Southwest and Billy the Kid.  Countless times we drove all around the southwest desert looking for ghost towns or grave sites of various people.  He would collect old bullets, casings, arrow heads and rocks.  I remember long car rides to end up in the middle of the desert looking at a wooden cross with etched in names. 

As well as a Pastor in churches in Lordsburg, NM; Playas, NM; Associate Pastor in Las Cruces, NM and Phoenix, AZ; Chuck was a Chaplain for the Las Cruces Sheriffs Department.  He loved being able to be there for people when they needed God the most.  He and his long time friend Alan Granger pursued this and many other outreach ministries together.

Chuck and Alan Granger also decided to take up flying.  They took many lessons, lots air time hours and became licensed to fly small planes.  Dad loved it so much many of our family outings were to look at planes or go to plane shows. 

Growing up Dad did the special things that his kids enjoyed. He was his son's t-ball coach. He let his daughter have pets that he was allergic to. He took us to car shows, plane shows, parades, hay rides and ice skating shows.  Music was a must, so Sarah learned the clarinet, Angela chose to follow her dad and play the trumpet, Alan learned to play the bass and the guitar.

Despite physical appearances, even after his stroke, he was always the same Chuck or daddy.  He loved his food and Diet Coke.  He had to have his Bible with him.  He took after his father The Original James Charles Weaver in many ways.  He was always a jokester and funny.  He always made you smile and enjoyed life.  Daddy was always caring, funny and happy.  He believed and practiced unconditional love.  Chuck was a strong man of faith, he never stopped loving and trusting God.

We are so grateful to have had our extra time with him.  We loved him so very much and our lives are so much richer because of his love. 

His father The Original James Charles Weaver passed away 2 days after his son.  We loved Granddad so much and we will miss him.  He was so very special to Dad and we think they just couldn't part.

A Memorial Service Life Celebration will be held on Friday, October 9, 2009 at 2:00 pm near Sarah's house.  Please contact Sarah, Angela, Tera or Richard for directions.

When Tomorrow Starts Without Me (by Anonymous)  
When tomorrow starts without me and I'm not there to see

If the sun should rise and find your eyes
all filled with tears for me

I wish so much you wouldn't cry the way you did today

While thinking of the many things we didn't get to say.


I know how much you love me as much as I love you

And each time that you think of me
I know you'll miss me too.

But when tomorrow starts without me please try to understand

That an angel came and called my name and
took me by the hand.


And said my place was ready in Heaven far above

And that I'd have to leave behind all those
things I dearly love.

But as I turned to walk away a tear fell from my eye

For all my life I'd always thought I didn't want to die.


I had so much to live for so much yet to do

It seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you.

I thought of all the yesterdays the good ones and the bad

I thought of all the love we shared and all the fun we had.


If I could relive yesterday just even for a while

I'd say goodbye and kiss you and maybe
see you smile.

But then I fully realized that could never be

For emptiness and memories would take
the place of me.


And when I thought of worldly things I might
miss come tomorrow

I thought of you and when I did my heart was
filled with sorrow.

But when I walked through Heaven's gates
I felt so much at home.

When God looked down and smiled at me
from his great golden throne.


He said "This is eternity and all I've
promised you.

Today your life on Earth is past and
here it starts anew".

"I promise no tomorrow but today will always last

And since each day's the same day there's
no longing for the past".


"But you have been so faithful so trusting and so true

Though there were times you did some things
you know you shouldn't do".

"But you have been forgiven and now at
last you're free

So won't you take my hand now and share
My life with Me".


So when tomorrow starts without me don't
think we're far apart

For every time you think of me I'm right here
in your heart.
In This Life by Bette Midler  
For all I've been blessed with in this life
there was an emptiness in me.
I was imprisoned by the power of gold.
With one kind touch you sent me free.

Let the world stop turning.
Let the sun stop burning.
Let them tell me love's not worth going through.
If it all falls apart
I will know deep in my heart
the only dream that mattered had come true:
In this life I was loved by you.

For every mountain I have climbed
every raging river crossed
you were the treasure that I longed to find.
Without your love I would be lost.

Let the world stop turning.
Let the sun stop burning.
Let them tell me love's not worth going through.
If it all falls apart
I will know deep in my heart
the only dream that mattered had come true:
In this life I was loved by you.

I know that I won't live forever
but forever I'll be loving you.

Let the world stop turning.
Let the sun stop burning.
Let them tell me love's not worth going through.
If it all falls apart
I will know deep in my heart
the only dream that mattered had come true:
In this life I was loved by you.
In this life I was loved by you.
