Rodney E. Weaver

Rodney E. Weaver, 77, a resident of Bettendorf, passed away at home on June 9, 2023 surrounded by his beloved wife and children.  Rodney was born on November 15, 1945, to Ernie and Irene (Francis) Weaver in Davenport, Iowa . He was the youngest of three children. Rodney graduated from Davenport West High School in 1964.

 

Rodney was the quarterback of his high school football team and fell in love with his favorite cheerleader, Beverly Ann Lange.  The high school sweethearts were married on February 5, 1966. They resided in Bettendorf, Iowa with their three children, David, Tami, and Stephanie.  Once their children moved out, the couple took the opportunity to move around the country for Rodney's sales career.  From Arizona to Pennsylvania to his home in the great state of Iowa, Rodney enjoyed getting to know various regions of the country he loved so much!

 

Rodney always kept busy by maintaining his perfectly manicured yard, his immaculate vehicles, and walking his faithful companion Bella, his Old English Sheepdog.  He had a passion for sports, specifically the Iowa Hawkeyes and Denver Broncos.  No one met a better armchair quarterback than Rod!  Rod loved spending time with all his grandchildren and was thrilled to meet his first 2 great grandsons!

 

Rodney's favorite time of the year was the week of the Bix 7.  He was a dedicated runner for many years and participated in 30+ Bix 7 races.  Running in the Boston Marathon was one of his greatest achievements!  His love for the Bix has spilled over to his children and grandchildren!

 

Rodney is survived by his wife, and three children David (Karen) Weaver, Davenport, Tami (Dan) McCann, Carlisle, PA, Stephanie (Chris) Thornell, Wareham, MA; nine grandchildren, Karissa (Daniel) Judd, Cooper Thornell, Camryn (Michael Lippincott), Riley, and Keeley Thornell, Matt and Kirk McCann, Hallie and Jennifer Weaver; 2 great-grandsons, Ronin Judd and Henry Lippincott; brother Gary (Linda) Weaver, Phoenix, AZ.

 

Rodney was preceded in death by his parents, sister, Marilyn Beckman, and niece, Susan (Weaver) Woodard.

 

Rodney will be remembered for always arriving early, his love of sweets and shopping, and rocking his grandchildren to sleep!

 

The family will host an open house at Rod and Bev's home on Tuesday, June 13, from 4-7 PM.  Halligan-McCabe-DeVries Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements.
