Marvin “Marv” L. Weaver, son of Elvin R. and Pearl S. Weaver, born June 11, 1947, passed away Tuesday evening at home with his loving family. Marv was born in Lancaster, PA and graduated from Elizabethtown High School, Class of 1965. After high school, he went to Denver, Colorado to serve in the selective service system during the Vietnam Conflict in a hospital in the central supply department. While in Colorado, he attended school to become an auto mechanic. When he returned back to Lancaster, PA, he married Sandra J. Grubb in 1969 and had two beloved daughters, Jody and Tammy. Marv then worked as a heavy machine repair mechanic for Cleveland Brothers prior to starting his own business, Marvin L. Weaver Repair Service. He was active at Florin Church of the Brethren serving in the children’s ministry, youth group and on a number of boards. He was preceded in death by his parents and first wife Sandra. While at Florin, he met A. Lisa (Adams) Snyder who became a family friend and later they married. He was a loving and devoted husband and father to her and her children, Peter, Nathan, and Emily. He was a member of LCBC (Lives Changed By Christ), Manheim. Throughout his life he was a faithful follower of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Marv was patient, selfless, kind, and a wonderful family man. He always had a sparkle in his eyes and a warm smile. As a young man he wrestled, had his solo pilot’s license, and enjoyed surfing and hunting. Later in life, he enjoyed model trains, skiing, playing board games, and sailing. Marv was captain of his 36 foot sailboat, “Quiet Entry,” on the Chesapeake Bay, where he had many voyages with family and friends.
