Carmon L. Weller
July 26, 1934 ‒ February 25, 2015
Although there is a gaping hole in our hearts and lives, we are consoled to know that he is with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He was baptized into Christ and exemplified his teachings. He was a member of the Palmyra Church of Christ.
We are truly blessed to have had Carmon in our lives. We thank God for this blessing and for the years that were given us.
He was born on July 26, 1934 to Lester and Esther McCulley Weller and graduated from Fredericktown in the Class of 1952 where he was his Class and FFA President. He went into the army in Korea in 1954, was stationed in Germany and discharged in 1956. He was a member of Middlebury Grange and Knox Farm Bureau.
He graduated from The Ohio State University in 1965 earning his Bachelor Degree in Agronomy, and after graduation worked in soil conservation. Carmon was an avid Buckeye fan. He taught two years at Cardington and two years at Chesterville before going into his own successful excavating business.
He was extremely popular and well-liked and his friends were from all walks of life. He would not differentiate between the President of the United States and a homeless person if he had met both because he treated everyone equally well. Unconditional love was given to everyone. He hired those who needed jobs and helped those who were in need. He was an excellent listener and many people enjoyed his visits—even cancer patients were said to have perked up after Carmon stopped by, and he was welcomed back any time. Because of his visits and consideration for others, he developed the nickname of “Ambassador of Good Will.”
His family heard comments from others that he was one of the nicest people they had ever met. His trips to the nursing homes and hospitals brought comments from staff who said, “He was the best patient, we wish all patients were like him and we ‘loove’ him.” One could always recognize him with his eternal smile—even to the end. He was honest, hardworking, considerate, humorous, humble, a super dad and always enjoyed the opportunity to play a joke.
He is survived by his high school sweetheart and wife of 58 years Betty (Lozier); his children Tracie Weller and Jeff (Marj) Weller both of Fredericktown; seven grandchildren: Ashley and Miranda Weller, Holly (Andy) Taynor, Leah (Chase) Barnett, Ross, Amber and Summer Weller; five great grandchildren: Ivorie Weller, Selah and Knox Taynor, Silvia and Ryker Barnett.
He was preceded in death by his son Judd, his parents and brothers Carroll and Chandler.
Calling hours will be Wednesday, March 4, 2015 from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. and Thursday from 10 a.m. until services at 11 a.m. at the Palmyra Church of Christ with Evangelist Troy Northrop officiating. Burial will follow in Forest Cemetery in Fredericktown.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Palmyra Church of Christ, 21184 Zolman Road, Fredericktown, OH 43019.
