Bruce Weaver Sr. is an entrepreneur and a person with many talents and passions, according to his obituary. He started his first business while still in high school and went on to join the Merchant Marines during World War II, building Freedom Ships. He married his lover, Irene Jurries Weaver, on his 22nd birthday. They founded the business together after the war and were married for 56 years until her death in 2001.

Weaver had four children, two of whom survived him, in addition to grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He died aged 99 on December 14, 2021. He also found a “woman friend” in his later years, a neighbor, Doris Hervey, who had “enriched the last two decades. of his life,” his obituary said.

“Bruce is an entrepreneur and a risk-taker, always excited about his next adventure,” his obituary reads.

He was a rancher, an athlete, an avid reader and a good listener, open to different points of view, his obituary said. He is also motivated to help the homeless and invest in First Unified Methodist Church Hotline Project in Houston. His family has requested that donations be made in his memory for the Hotline Project.

Jerry Ann Miller of Houston died on December 17, 2021 at the age of 76, leaving behind a partner of two children, grandchildren and a cat. Her family described her in her obituary as “an absolute treasure.”

“While she does not want any compliments in life or legacy, this is one wish we must defy, so we will be brief,” her family wrote. “She was the kindest and most generous person one could hope to meet, and no one who met her would dislike her. Her love is unconditional, her smiles are easy and sincere, and her smile is contagious. To the wonderful Greenway employees/families and in her ‘errands’ sales, she is the ubiquitous Mrs. Miller, to many Jerry Ann, and to us she is a mother, Mom and Memes.

In place of flowers, her family asked: “Be kind and generous like mother”.

Albert L. Davis, 79 years old

“He loves helping people fix their air conditioners and appliances. After retiring, he earned a degree so he could teach others. Al loved his students and continued to be a mentor to many of them as they began their careers in the HVAC industry,” his obituary said.

Davis loves golf, but enjoys it even more when one of his daughters comes along and drives him golf carts. He is known for his “joyful and positive outlook on life” and “always smiling, even when he’s not feeling well,” his obituary reads.

His family requested donations in lieu of flowers for American Heart & Stroke Association Houston.
