Walter C. Weir
Walter C. Weir died peacefully at home on Christmas Eve after a brief bout with cancer.
He was born on June 29,1931 in Easton, MA. As a machinist by trade, he was well known for his innovative ways and ingenuity, retiring from the University of Vermont Physics Department in 1996. He served in the Korean War as a medical ambulance driver.
Walter fulfilled his dream by moving the family from Massachusetts to Vermont in 1968 to renovate an old farmhouse surrounded by rolling meadows, where he proudly lived for 52 years. He was most happy tinkering with his tractors or haying the land up until this past summer. He is survived by his wife Marilyn of 68 years; children Lorinda Crowley (Jim) of The Villages, Florida; Steven Weir (Monica) of Underhill, and Janet Weir Carlson of Hinesburg; grandchildren Tom and Dustin Weir and Lauren Ball; four great grandchildren and brothers Paul and Albert Weir of Massachusetts. He was predeceased by sons Brian and Tom and sisters Madeline and Jean.
The family would like to thank Sandra Harms and the caring team of the UVM Medical Home Health and Hospice.
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
