Brian Keith Weaver, 57, of Onsted, MI, and formerly of Warren, PA, went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, May 2, 2017, after a year-long battle with brain cancer. Brian was born on February 4, 1960, in Warren, Ohio, the son of Harry T. and Alice M. Weaver. He grew up in the Air Force, having lived in England, Florida and New Mexico, but graduated from Warren Area High School in 1978. He was a standout athlete even in his youth. A superb and fearless wide receiver, highly-skilled wrestler and a baseball and softball player par excellence, anyone who played with Brian or faced him on the mat knew him to be the consummate teammate and a formidable foe. After graduation, Brian served four years in the Navy as an electrician aboard the USS Thomas C. Hart. He worked for Dave Paul at Alpha Omega in Warren for almost 10 years, then for the US Bureau of Prisons (BOP) until his retirement in 2012, after serving 20 years at FCIs Allenwood, Fort Dix, Elkton, and Milan. During his time with the BOP, Brian received numerous awards at the local, regional and national levels for exceptional performance. Brian touched a lot of lives in his time on this earth, his temporary home. He was serious about health and fitness and imparted his philosophy on many, many others. He was widely known as an all-around "good guy" with a quick wit and a brilliant sense of humor. He had a caring, but fierce heart and anyone who knew him well knew him as a devoted and loyal friend. Brian was one of those guys who kept friends for life, not just for short periods. Brian is survived by his mother, Alice; and his brother, Randy Weaver, both of Johnstown, PA. Brian was preceded in death by his father, CMSgt (USAF Retired) Harry Weaver. Friends will be received at the Peterson-Blick Funeral Home, Inc. 1003 Penn. Ave. E., Warren, on Sunday, May 7, from 4 to 7 p.m., and at the Grace United Methodist Church, 501 Penn. Ave. E,. Warren, on Monday, May 8, from 11 a.m. until noon, at which time a funeral service will be held there with Rev. Rich Pearson, pastor, officiating, assisted by Rev. Keith Martin. Burial will be in Warren County Memorial Park.

Matt and I worked with Brian and we lived near by him. Brian was a great person. He was always willing to help anyone at work and kept a smile on his face. Outside of work he was good friend. He was an inspiration to a lot of people with his healthy life style. Brian would do anything to help a friend. He was such a kind person with a big heart. We will miss him. We want to give our blessings to his entire family and all of his friends.

Brian and I met on our first day at work in the Bureau of Prisons; we went to the academy together, went to the gym together and even worked together inside. Brian was always quick with a smile or an encouraging word. Even though our careers took us to separate parts of the country, we still kept in touch. I will miss my Bureau brother.

Brian was a big man with an even bigger heart. It pains me to see him gone so quickly but I find comfort in knowing that so many lives have been enriched by the impact he made on every one he met. Gone too soon but his smile and memories will live on forever to those who knew him.

To Brian’s family, although no words can really help to ease your loss, please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Mr. Weaver was my first supervisor when I was accepted to a position as Electronics Technician at USDOJ FBOP FCI Elkton. He was quite supportive and patient with me as I learned to fill the new role and realize my responsibilities. Furthermore his support didn't just end at work. Mr. Weaver helped me out at my home on different electrical projects I was conducting. We lost contact over the years but I was very sorry to hear about his death. My condolences go out to his loved ones.

Brian was a great person. He worked with my uncle at a previous facility and worked with me at FCI Elkton. He always had kind words for me and always asked about my family. He will be sadly missed

It is so difficult to truly find the words to accurately describe Brain with that said, not a sole on earth could ever ask for a better friend, leader, mentor and a great practical joker. I had the true blessing to work with Brian at FCI Elkton for many years. He it a true friend, a friend that is always in our hearts, souls and prayers. Although you are with the Lord now (say hi to Lois and Bob for us), you will always be in our hearts. May God continue bless you Brian as well as all your family!

Brian and I worked together for a couple of years in Michigan. Brian was a true leader and was loved and respected by those whom he managed as well as those who he called friend. His smile, his firm handshake and honesty in conversation were something to behold on a daily basis. He was a very dedicated and honest Man who never backed down from any challenge or adversity.

His leadership style was something to be emulated and his friendship was something that I will never forgot. God bless you Brian and may He hold you close and grant you eternal rest and Peace.

Although it may seem unusual for me to offer condolences on the death of my brother, having met so many of you last Sunday and Monday and having listened to dozens of tearful accounts of how Brian touched or inspired you and enriched your lives, I think it only fitting to offer my condolences to his many friends. I know how badly I miss him now and that I always will and I'm sure we have that in common.

I didn't know Brian all that well, as I only met him 6 months or so before his retirement. I walked in on him and a coworker reminiscing about the good old days and put my 2 cents in. He welcomed me into the conversation and that was the start. He would occasionally come to the nursing office to exchange "war stories" about his years in Service. I would see him for the last time post retirement at the annual golf outing. He was genuinely happy to see and talk with me and former coworkers again. I understand what others meant by including "caring, understanding and fearless" as some of his core traits. I am sorry for your loss. Brian will be a smile missed for years to come. For all his suffering, please know he is in a better place now.
