  3. With our deepest condolences to Janice, Jimmy and family we are sadden for your loss of a great man who loved his family and life. He was an awesome friend and co-worker he treated everyone with respect. His customers at Weisheimer pet supply that he enjoyed serving while smoking his cigar or pipe, his customers loved him.

    Mrs Janice, Jimmy, Renee, Steven , grand babies and extended family. Please accept my deepest condolences on your loss. I am so very thankful for the soft spoken, funny and always strong presence in the background watching over us while Mama worked. We always knew you all were looking out for us and that gave us comfort. Mr. Weatherspoon was always there with a watchful eye, his pipe with sweet cherry tobacco, and even to dig us out of the ditchs in the snow with our inexperienced driving! We knew if we were home scared that he would chase the boogie man away if we needed him to check on us. He was a example of what is hard to find these days. A GreaTT Dad, husband, mentor and the best neighbor you could ever have. You all made us part of your family and truly believed in “it takes a village” as evidenced in Mr. Jimmy and Mrs Janice care for us as kids, my friends and even our children. I can’t thank you enough for the memories of the strong but not overpowering presence Mr. Weatherspoon played in our lives. I celebrate his , smile, demeanor and essence of the Blessing that God sent us in a man. Blessings , Honor and much Love – Charlene
