The family of Frank Stanford Weyer is deeply saddened to announce his passing on July 9, 2022 at the age of 88 years. He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Rose Marie Weyer, and by his three children, Mary Cathrine Weyer-Dean(Tom), Frank Stanford Weyer, Jr.(Amy), and Deborah Anne Weyer(Richard) and by six grandchildren and four great grandchildren. He is predeceased by parents, Stanford and Louise Weyer, sister Phyllis Weyer Doolin and brother Marvin Weyer. He is survived by his two younger siblings, Donald Robert Weyer and Lois Weyer Srock.

Frank was born in Capac, Michigan on May 10, 1934. His early education was in a one room school where he learned the joy of reading and learning. In high school, he became an Eagle Scout and was awarded the Order of the Arrow. He was also selected to attend Boys State.

Following graduation from Clarkston High School Frank joined the Air Force, was accepted into Officer’s Training School, commissioned and served five years. He left to attend the University of Michigan where he earned a BSEE. Eager to leave the snow and ice behind, he moved with his family to Palm Bay, Florida to work in the aerospace industry at Radiation, Inc. He later accepted a position with Lockheed Martin in Ocala and Orlando. While working, Frank received his MBA from NOVA University and after 24 years retired from Lockheed Martin. He was a resident of Ocala for 51 years.

Frank was a devout Christian and a lifelong Lutheran. He enjoyed traveling, reading, singing in various choirs, attending the classes for Seniors at College of Central Florida, watching most sports, particularly college football, (especially the Wolverines and Gators), and most of all, spending time with his beloved family. His strong character and loving personality made him a treasured husband, father and grandfather. His kindness and good humor, as well as his loving guidance will be missed by us all.

A Memorial/Celebration of Life will be held at the Appleton Museum on July 30, 2022.

Frank’s family would like to express their deepest appreciation to the wonderful, dedicated, and compassionate care given by the people at Marion County Hospice whose help made it possible for him to be cared for at home during the last six months of his illness.

The family requests those who wish to express sympathy to consider making a donation to the Hospice of Marion County.
