GONE, BUT NOT FORGOTTEN!
MILLIKAN GRADS WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE US




David Weimer '60

David Lowell Weimer


David Lowell Weimer, age 70, cherished son of Lowell and Marion Weimer, died on March 7, 2013 in his home, after suffering with pancreatic cancer for three months. He was the Weimer's first-born and had all the characteristics and privileges of the eldest child. He graduated from Millikan HS in 1960 and went on to LBCC/BTD. In January 1965, he hired into Douglas Aircraft as a drill press operator, but soon became an electrical planner and that's how it was for the next 37 years. He married his high school sweetheart, Diane Wasley on March 26, 1965. Married 47 years, they raised two fine sons, Stephen and Kurt. David was well read and his interests were wide spread. He could speak on many topics. He was kind and such a good listener. David was a "maker". He crafted 3-masted ship models, restored a '75 CJ5 Jeep, and finally completed the ultimate task, a 700 square foot family room off the back of our home. As a "can do guy, he was confident in his abilities. He could fix anything! Survived by his wife, Diane, his sons Stephen (Robin) and Kurt (Nakiesha) and his grandson, Padraic, siblings Darrel, sister-in-law (Sally Weimer Aquino), Claudia, Paul (Amy), his brother-in-law Stephen (Cindy) and sister-in-law, Sue Fairley (Joel).

His best friend, Jack Terry Johnson, class of '60 died Mar. 23, 2012.

Sincerely,
Diane Weimer

  Sherry Jo (Bell) Kopp   

My good friend  and co chairman of the class of 60 reunion Sherry Jo (Bell) Kopp, passed away February 28, 2010.  She had been successfully fighting breast cancer when she contracted pneumonia.  It must have been a powerful pneumonia to take our Sherry.  She was a fighter.  She had planned on retiring and traveling.  She leaves 3 sons, John, and twins Danny and David.  She also leaves several sisters and a brother.
We will miss her greatly.

I was extremely sad to read about the death of Sherry Bell, class of 60.  I first met her in 5th grade at Carver.  I was new in town, and didn't know anyone, but she was friendly to me.  During that year I had to miss some school for surgery and she was kind enough to come to my house and visit during my recuperation.
 
Sorry to hear of her passing.

This is from Judy Snodgrass

Those we love stay with us,
for love itself lives on.
And cherished memories never fade
because a loved ones gone.
Those we love can never be
more than a world apart,
for as long as there are memories
they'll live on in the heart.
