Billy Lewis (Bill) Weaver [January 17, 1941--November 19,2020] was born at Glasgow, KY, the only child of Jesse and Lucy (Flowers) Weaver.  His schooling included grades 1-9 at Temple Hill School, grades 10-12 at College High School in Bowling Green, KY, undergraduate and graduate work at Western Kentucky State College (now Western Kentucky University), and graduate work at Indiana University.   During his graduate work at IU he met the love of his life (Karen Jean Hawkins of Bedford, IN), who was also doing graduate work at IU.  They married on December 29, 1967.

His teaching career included 4 years in the Bowling Green Public Schools, 1 year at West Texas State University, 9 years at Western Kentucky University, and 28 years at the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Medicine.   Over the years, Bill attended Temple Hill Missionary Baptist Church, First Baptist Church of Bowling Green, and Dawson Memorial Baptist Church in Birmingham.

He was preceded in death by his parents and is survived by Karen, his wife of 53 years, and their children: Emily Kay Weaver Johnson (Eric) of Redmond, WA and Derek Lane Weaver (Pam) of Birmingham and by grandsons: Owen and Lincoln Johnson and Aidan and Asher Weaver.  A post-cremation memorial service will be at 11am on Thurs. Dec. 3 at Dawson Memorial Church, located at 1114 Oxmoor Road in Birmingham. Masks and social distancing in seating arrangements is required. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Dawson Preschool Ministries or Kids Connection.

He was very fortunate to have had great grade and high school classmates, students, colleagues, neighbors, & wonderfully thoughtful and considerate relatives and friends.  Also, no patient could ever have more skilled and compassionate care than was provided by Stan Massie, M.D.
