Weaver Arthur
Arthur T. Weaver, 87, died June 12 in Napa. He was born June 25, 1922, to Roy and Bernice Weaver of Turlock. He attended Turlock schools and Modesto Junior College before going to Stanford University where he was a member of Beta Theta Phi fraternity and studied business. Arthur went into the Navy as an ensign in World War II. He attended several colleges, including Colorado College, Ohio State and Columbia. He was a midshipman in Norfolk, Va. and was shipped out on the Tripoli to Brazil in the gunnery department. Arthur played basketball on-board and flew in a B24 to Panama. After the war, he graduated from Stanford University and returned to Turlock to work in the bank his grandfather founded. He dated Annie Davies since her high school sophomore year and waited for her to graduate from UC Santa Barbara to get married. They were married in August 1947. Their daughter, Laurie, was born in July 1948, followed by son, John, 18 months later, and  daughter, Diane, exactly three years after that. Arthur was shipped out on the Rendova during the Korean War. After active service, the family moved to Marysville, where he served in the Reserve during the 1955 flood, and later his family moved to Sacramento. Art and Anne built a country home in Loomis and raised animals and a large garden with mandarin trees. A real gift came in 1971 when Freddie Torres came to live with them as a foreign exchange student from Chile. Not only was he the perfect child, but a great hiking, hunting and fishing companion. Upon retirement, Art and his family moved to Santa Rosa and built another wonderful home in the country. They lived there for more than 20 years before moving to The Meadows of Napa Valley.
Art was very active for some 50 years in Kiwanis, serving as lieutenant governor three times. He enjoyed visiting many different clubs in Northern California and had many wonderful friends. He was a member of  Navy League and MOAA.
He is survived by daughters, Laurie Puzo of Napa and Diane Weaver of Mackay, Idaho; son, John (Colleen) of Sparks , Nev.; beloved grandchildren, Blake, Dakota and Jazlen; brother, Dick (Fran); sister, Margaret; and many other family members.
The family would like to thank the wonderful doctors and nurses at The Meadows and the caring staff of Queen of the Valley Medical Center.
 He had a good, long life and has gone to the other side to go find Anne. Art and Anne will be inurned together during a private ceremony at Turlock Cemetery.
