Bruce L. Weir, 1958-2022, of Ridge Farm, and formerly of Effingham and Kailua Kona, Hawii.

Summing up a person’s life in a few words is impossible. The impact Mr. Weir left on this world is not of distinction or approval but his selfless compassion and generosity that he showed for a friend or stranger. Often times from behind the scenes, the person would not even know who had helped them.

Mr. Weir was a man’s man; strong opinions, a dedicated patriot and an unwavering love of his friends and his wife, Donna. She loved him back with an equal degree of passion. After his long career in retail, they hit the backroads of this country in search of that old advertising sign that reminds us all of days gone by. It wasn’t what he bought, sold or collected that will be remembered. The keepsakes are the memories logged with every mile they left in the rearview mirror; whether traveling distant roads or frequenting a favorite establishment,he never met a stranger. That jovial smiles he always greeted everyone with and his great hugs will live engrained in the memory of our hearts.

Mr. Weir grew up in Ridge Farm and recently moved back to the town he loved after 40 years. A community that helped to raise a boy into the man he became. He was forever grateful for each person that helped him along the way; the fathers that taught him to swim, played in the school father/son basketball game and those that kept him out of trouble. The mothers that had him to supper, took him to sporting events and welcomed him into their family at any time. Those vivid memories were always with him.

Being a realist, he would fully understand that there would be tears shed upon his untimely passing. He would also insist that all those left behind not let those tears blind us from the memories of the smiles we shared when we were fortunate enough to spend precious moments together. 

Mr. Weir chose cremation with no immediate services. His wife, Donna, and friends will be having a celebration of life in early March.
