Paul "Buzz" Weaver passed away January 25, 2020 in Parker, Colorado. He was born in Skidmore, Missouri on May 27, 1930, and his family eventually settled in Imogene, Iowa where he met and married Virginia Margaret Butcher. Buzz was preceded in death by his father Paul Weaver, mother Letty Davis, his sisters Elaine LaBore and June Stockstill, brother Eugene Weaver, his wife Margaret and his son Paul Jennings Weaver. He is survived by his brothers Bill Weaver, Randy Weaver, Rick Weaver and sisters Teena Weaver and Candi Ely, his daughters Karen Roberts and Jennifer Lavery; five grandchildren, Kyra sharp, Cliff Roberts, Greg Roberts, Brittany Sours,and Christopher Lavery as well as seven great-grandchildren, Alexea Smith, Serenity Sharp, Ben Wright, Olivia Roberts, Aiden Sours, Abigail Sours and one to be announced.

Upon graduating from high school in Farragut, Iowa, Buzz attended business college in Omaha, Nebraska and worked for the Wabash Railroad. At 22 he married Margaret and enlisted in the Army to serve in the Korean War. Buzz was an accomplished telegraph operator and worked in the Pentagon with the Military Affiliate Radio Service. He was discharged in 1955 as a Corporal. He reported to work in Craig, Colorado as a telegrapher for the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad. In two years he was promoted to Agent and moved to Chama, New Mexico. Over the next few years he worked in Durango and Leadville before settling at the Station in Alamosa, Colorado where he served as agent before retiring in 1989. In addition to the railroad, in 1964 he bought a farm south of Alamosa and started his secondary career as a farmer.

Buzz enjoyed telling stories about his time on the railroad and thought and spoke often of his friends from that time. Buzz's true love, though, was his farms and the dear friends he made during his many years in and around Alamosa.

Karen, Jennifer and families,
I was so sad to hear of Paul's passing. It's hard losing a parent at any age. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Carol (Ortiz) Redding

Paul and his wonderful family were our first friends in Alamosa. When I started to offer ballet classes at Adams State University, Paul enrolled all three of his children to help my classes grow. Mountain Valley Dance had 565 students when I retired. Thank you Karen, Jennifer and young Paul. When we started other businesses in Alamosa, Paul and Margaret encouraged us at every step of the way. We will never forget his generosity, kindness, and encouragement. He was one special person!
