Deacon Harry Davis Weaver, Sr., the son of Katie Sue Raglin and the late John Pettiford, was born on July 24, 1951 in Roxboro, North Carolina. He traded time for eternity on Wednesday, October 6, 2021, at his home.
He was a graduate of Person County High School. After graduation, he attended Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
For thirty-five years, he was employed in the Radiology Department at Duke University Medical Center, and later became a Supervisor. Additionally, he was very passionate about Funeral Service, and worked as a Funeral Director at Booker and Sharpe Funeral Homes in Roxboro, NC; Scarborough and Hargett and Quality Mortuary in Durham, NC; Jones Funeral Home in Chapel Hill, NC; and was instrumental in assisting his son with the vision of Weaver and Son Funeral Home.
On February 22, 1993, he married the lovely Wanda Deloatch, and this union produced one son, Christopher. Together, they were the proud parents of three additional children: Harry, Jr., Brigette, and Ama.
He accepted Christ at an early age, and joined Union Grove Baptist Church in Hurdle Mills, NC. At the time of his passing, he along with his family were members of Victory Cathedral Worship Center in Durham, NC. In 2006, for his love and dedication to the service of the Lord, he was named Man of The Year by the Men of Victory Cathedral.
