Timothy Weaver, Sr. was born December 24, 1938 to the late Lawrence and Rosa Weaver in Washington, DC. Tim departed this life on April 21, 2014 at the Prince George’s General Hospital. He grew up in the Northeast section of Deanwood and later moved to the Maryland suburban area where he attended Fairmont Heights High School. On May 31, 1960, Tim was united in holy matrimony to Brenda Snowden and from this union was born four sons, Timothy, Jr., Todd, Troy and Tracy. He accepted Christ and was later baptized by the late Rev. Fred X. Porter of the Antioch Baptist Church. He later became a member of the merged congregations of Peaceful Bible Baptist Church and Cornerstone Baptist Church, under the pastorship of Pastor Daniel T. Mangrum.
After high school, Tim went to work for the Maryland National Capital Park & Planning Commission (MNCPPC) where he was employed for 53 years in various capacities. He was honored with multiple awards from the Commission for outstanding service. While working there, Tim became a mentor to many of the young employees who came on board. He loved his job and was considered the “mailman” of MNCPPC. You could count on him to go to work – rain, sleet, snow or hail. Tim retired from the Commission in September 2010 after dutifully serving for 53 years and was recognized for his outstanding service.
Prior to his retirement, Tim had become an enthusiastic golfer, often traveling to local golf tournaments. Amongst other hobbies, he enjoyed landscaping and gardening. You could always count on Tim planting a garden every spring and often sharing the “fruit of his labor” with his neighbors and friends.
Tim was preceded in death by his mother and father and three brothers, Alton, Gilbert and Franklin Weaver. He is survived by his wife, Brenda; sons Timothy, Jr. (Melissa), Todd (Letrice), Troy (Angela) and Tracy; nine grandchildren; three brothers, Lawrence, Jr. (Sporty), Alfred and Robert Weaver; one sister, Jean Weaver-Muse, two god-children, Yvette Harrison-Bryant and Wanda Stewart-Morsell; a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
