September 11, 1929 ‒ May 18, 2017
MANSFIELD: Carl E. Weed, age 87, was reunited with his wife of over 53 years Shirley Lee (Reep) Weed and his oldest son Timothy A. Weed, on Thursday, May 18, 2017 at Ohio Health Mansfield Hospital, after a brief illness.
Carl was born September 11, 1929, in New Albany, Ohio and the son to the late Ellis W. and Bessie M. Weed. He graduated from Columbus Schools in Columbus. He was the youngest of two brothers and a sister.
He served in the US Army in Korea from 1952-53. He was a radio technician and served the rank of Sergeant. He wrote letters to a girl back home that he had never met; Shirley L. Reep and they got married as soon as he returned home and were married for 53 years before she passed in 2006. When his wife was forced to be in a wheelchair, he was a faithful husband and devoted over 18 years of his life to taking care of her.
Carl was one of the original five men who started Warren Rupp Inc. in 1968 at the age of 39. In the beginning he was their 1st and only salesman and when he retired in 1994 he was in charge of the entire sales department.
Carl loved the outdoors; he and Shirley took such pride in their home and their flower gardens throughout their yard. Their home was featured in the Parade of Homes several times. He was an avid wood worker and loved to BBQ for his family on the weekends. He loved playing cards, especially Euchre with his family and friends. He never said a harsh word to anyone; he could always make you laugh with his sense of humor. He had special relationships with all his kids but loved being a grandfather to all six of his grandsons. He made them all feel so special and they always knew they had a friend to talk to. Carl was extremely happy to recently be blessed with three wonderful great granddaughters. The family will always remember that one of the biggest joys in his life was having his family come home every Christmas morning so he could make breakfast.
Carl is survived by his son, Michael J. (Wanza) Weed, of Lexington; his daughter Pam S. (Kurt) Weed Armstrong, of Crestline; daughter-in-law Mary Weed of Texas; six grandsons Adam (Becki) Weed, of Logan; Kevin Weed, of Shelby, Andrew Weed, of Athens, Chris (Lindsay) Weed of Haysville, Kyle Armstrong of Crestline, and Ryan Armstrong of Crestline; three great granddaughters Lilah Weed, Natalie Weed and Kiera Weed all of Logan. Also a special friend Brenda, who was always there for him and who he loved as a granddaughter.
In addition to his parents, and wife, he was preceded in death by his oldest sister Florence L. Weed (Pitzer), two older brothers, Ellis W. Weed Jr. and Robert K. Weed and his oldest son, Timothy A. Weed.
A memorial gathering will be Wednesday, May 24, 2017 from 6-8 p.m. at the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home.
Carl’s family would like to extend a special thank you to his Elmcroft Family who treated him with respect and love.
Memorial contributions to Ohio Health Hospice may be made through the funeral home.
