Allen Weaver

PLATTSBURGH — Allen Joseph Weaver passed away Jan. 26, 2014. He was born Dec. 23, 1930, to Allen and Anna Weaver.

Allen was husband to Margaret for over 60 years, until her passing in July 2011. Together, they had nine children, Gregory and Jeanne having passed before them.

Al is survived by Linda Lamb, Karen Lamb, Allen (Gwyn), Peter (Patricia), Kenneth (Laurie), and Margaret (James) Balko, and Roger; 16 grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren. He and Margie also cared for several foster children.

Allen served in the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict. Following his honorable discharge, he began a long career working in the telephone industry; starting at New York Telephone. He later joined C&U Telephone Company, in Norwich. He advanced rapidly and was Senior Plant Engineer for Continental Telephone at the time of his retirement. He dabbled in local politics, and was elected to Town Council in Union Beach, N.J.

A devout Catholic, he was a member and past officer of Knights of Columbus (jokingly being referred to as the "Grand Poobah" by his children), and always put his family first.

After retiring, he and Margie designed and built their retirement home. They enjoyed traveling, and spoiling their grandchildren. Allen also enjoyed doing volunteer work for The Hazard Library in Poplar Ridge and Southern Cayuga Central School. His efforts were cut short when he suffered a major stroke about ten years ago. Having started married life in the Bronx, then moving on to Union Beach, Staten Island, Plymouth, Cato, Madison, Gloversville, and Aurora; he and Margie eventually relocated to Plattsburgh to gain the additional help of their youngest daughter, Margaret.

A Catholic funeral Mass is scheduled for 11 a.m. Friday, Jan. 31, at St. Alexander's Church, 1 Church Street, Morrisonville, NY. Following the Mass, family and friends are invited to gather at the church hall for fellowship and remembrance. A light lunch will be available.

A spring or early summer graveside service is being planned for Al and Margie to be interred at Beverly National Cemetery in New Jersey, next to their infant son, Gregory. Memorial donations may be made to Alzheimer's Assistance Center at SUNY Plattsburgh.

Arrangements are entrusted to Brown Funeral Home, 29 Broad Street, Plattsburgh, NY 12901. (518)-561-3980. Online condolences and memorial candles may be offered at
