Orville D. Weaver, 99, of Aurora, Indiana, passed away Thursday June 13, 2019 in Lawrenceburg, Indiana.
He was born October 14, 1919 in Ohio County, Indiana, son of the late Rolla B Weaver and Florence (Waller) Weaver.
He was a member of St. John Lutheran Church, confirmed in 1944. Orville was very active at church, he was a St. John School Board Member, a trustee and an Elder. He was a member of the Dearborn County Precinct Committee for 20 years, joining in 1980. Orville was also the Treasurer for Hogan Water Board for 28 years, and a Hogan Township Trustee for 20 years. He always helped with 4-H.
Orville farmed all of his life, starting with the Weaver family farm. He then continued on with his own farm, and dairy farming occupied a lot of his time. The Hogan Valley neighbors were a tight knit group, he often cleaned driveways during snow storms, and they all checked in on one another and helped whenever needed. His faith, family, friends and neighbors were very important to him. Orville left a legacy of respect, dignity, fairness and a positive attitude in all situations that he faced. He influenced a vast number of people throughout his many years of community service, to both young and old alike. He will be missed by all that knew him.
Orville is survived by his children, Rebecca “Becki” (Pete) Nocks of Aurora, IN, Dana Weaver of Urbana, IL, Darrell (Beth) Weaver of Dillsboro, IN and daughter in law, Bev Weaver; grandchildren, Kim (Mark) Swanson, Neil (Patti) Weaver, Amanda (Britton) Blair, Adam (Allison) Weaver, Matt (Luciana) Nocks, Andrea (Duane) Bowman, Nick (Chelsea) Weaver, Tim Weaver, Greg Weaver, Sarah (Nathan) Brooks, Dale (Corrie) Weaver; 17 great-grandchildren with two more on the way; and several nieces and nephews.
