Albert M. Weekley
April 22, 1929 ‒ January 14, 2018
BUTLER: With the simple act of placing a Gideon’s New Testament in the glove box of each vehicle that was sold through his car dealership, Albert Weekley combined his three passions: his love for the Lord, his compassion for people around him, and the auto business.
An outgoing and amiable man of faith, Albert was called to be with the Lord Sunday, January 14, 2018 from Grant Medical Center in Columbus. He was 88.
Born Albert Mason Weekley, Jr., April 22, 1929 in Butler to A.M. Weekley, Sr. and Lola Fay (Tilton) Weekley, he was graduated from Butler High School in 1947. He married his high school sweetheart Carolyn Kunkel April 1, 1951, and they were blessed with three children.
Albert worked with his father, and they incorporated the business in 1954 as A.M. Weekley and Son. Albert took pride in the excellence that became synonymous with the Weekley name, earning from Chrysler the coveted Pentastar Award, the Award for Excellence and continually operating as a 5-Star Dealership. There is a reason why the Weekley Chrysler brand has succeeded for 96 years: all based on the integrity and “Golden Rule” life that Albert modeled.
He was a member of the former E.U.B. Mt. Sinai Church in Butler. For nearly 50 years he served with Gideon’s International – spreading God’s Word. Albert genuinely enjoyed speaking on behalf of the Gideons.
Albert enjoyed traveling, and spent many winters near the beach in Ft. Lauderdale. He could often be found on the bike trail or working outside his home.
He will be remembered as a good husband, father, grandfather and uncle – strong in his Christian faith – who loved to talk with people.
The family that cherishes him includes his wife Carolyn; their children Kim (Duff) Whitaker of Norfolk, VA, Colleen (Lon Greer) Weekley Greer of Mt. Vernon and Matthew (Amy) Weekley of Butler; grandchildren Courtney Weekley and Aaron Weekley; and nieces Cynthia (Keith) Shubert of Powell and Stephanie McCurdy of Dublin.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister and brother-in-law Annabelle and Clark Stahl.
The Weekley family will receive friends Saturday, January 20, 2018 from 1 to 5 p.m. in the Bellville Snyder Funeral Home. A worship service, giving glory to God for the legacy of Albert Weekley will be held Sunday at 2 p.m. in North Bend Church of the Brethren, State Route 97 at Snyder Road. Pastors Jack Hackworth, Ken Kinley and Patrick Bailey will officiate. Private burial will follow Bunkerhill Cemetery.
Contributions in Albert’s memory to Gideon’s International may be made at the funeral home.
