GREENWICH, Conn. – Samuel Davis Weaver, 73, resident of Jupiter, Fla., died peacefully March 5, 2013, at home after a courageous 1 1/2 year long battle against an aggressive brain tumor. Born May 31, 1939, Samuel D. Weaver was the second child of William Bigler Weaver Jr. of Charlestown, W.Va., and Alita Davis Weaver of St. Louis.
He is survived by his beloved wife, E. Galey Clarke; children, Marian Weaver Ide of Natick, Mass., S. Davis Weaver of Cape Cod, Mass., Timothy Weaver of Bolton, Mass., and Jen Weaver Trisk of Greenwich, Conn.; brother, William Bigler Weaver III of Colts Neck, N.J.; sister, Alita Weaver Reed of Hobe Sound, Fla.; and eight grandchildren. He was predeceased by his younger, brother E. Whitaker Weaver of Greenwich, Conn.
Sam was an alumnus of Greenwich Country Day School; Middlesex School, Concord, Mass.; and Williams College, class 1961. He maintained many loyal friendships with classmates throughout his life. He was a fierce competitor and will be remembered for his athletic achievements in basketball and baseball at Middlesex and Williams. After a successful career in banking at the Wall Street firm of Morgan Guarantee, he became a private investor. He was the “go to” person for friends, family and associates with questions about finance. Among the many committees that Sam served on throughout the years, the one closest to his heart was Grindstone Association, Winter Harbor. He served as chairman of the golf committee for 20 years and was instrumental in improving one of the oldest golf courses in the U.S. Sam was caring and reliable; a man without pretense. Whether at Round Hill Club, Winter Harbor Yacht Club or Admiral’s Cove, you could count on Sam for a good story. He was always ready to laugh, tease or pull a prank, but try as he might, he couldn’t prevent the twinkle in his eye or the twitching at the end of his nose from giving away his joking
Sam will be buried alongside his mother, father and brother at Putnam Cemetery. Services are private.
