Paul Linn Weaver

June 4, 1944 — November 23, 2020

Paul Linn Weaver, 76, entered his eternal life on Monday, November 23, 2020, with family and love all around him. Paul was most known for his clever and charismatic story telling and had a way of capturing his audience with interesting words, facial expressions and his wonderful smile. He offered his voice of reason to difficult situations and used his warm humor to smooth out the inevitable kinks that life brings. He believed strongly in honoring, building and upholding what was best for the family “unit” and believed that, however painful, problems held a wealth of lessons to be learned. He was born in Vernonia, Oregon to Carl Harry and Thelma Louise Weaver. He was raised in Vernonia where he attended Washington Grade school before moving to Seaside, Oregon in 1959. Paul wrote a column called “Cousin Paul Sez”, in the high school news paper, was active in thespians and played football. He was inducted into the Seaside High School hall of fame for 1962 Cowapa League football champions years later in 2006. He graduated from Seaside High School in Seaside, Oregon in 1963 then attended Clatsop Community College in Astoria, Oregon. Paul then moved to Sitka, Alaska for work and returned to Seaside December 1964. On May 8, 1965, Paul married the love of his life, Cheryl Hart in Vancouver, WA, whom he met at Seaside High. Paul worked at the Crab Broiler as a teen, worked as a logger and went on to drive log truck for Waterhouse Logging, Duffy Larson Logging and JC Benson Logging. Paul also served on the Seaside Volunteer Fire Department from 1972-1975. He worked for UPS for 28 years, driving package car in Seaside and as an occasional “feeder” driver to Tillamook and Portland. He earned several awards for safe driving, but was most known by his unmistakable smile, and after retiring in 1998, Paul and Cheryl ran their “Mom & Pop” business, Little Diggins, doing tractor work and light hauling and after 12 years, retired again to settle into their life in Hamlet. Paul was active in the small community and served on the board of directors for both the Hamlet Historical Schoolhouse and Community Center and the Hamlet Fire Department for several years. Paul loved to camp, fish, and hunt and spend time with family where he was “Papa” to his five grandchildren. Paul and Cheryl were married for 55 years. He leaves a great legacy and will truly be missed by many.
