Dr. H. Bruce Weaver passed away on February 5, 2022 at the age of 77 surrounded by his family at his home. Bruce is survived by his beautiful loving wife and best friend, Debbie, his sister Gail, his two children Bruce III and Hope and his grandchildren, Meghan, Bruce IV and Sam, and his nephew, Page.

Bruce was born in San Tome, Venezuela where he spent fourteen years and met his future wife. He attended military school and went on to earn several college degrees including his Doctorate from Vanderbilt University. Bruce worked on tugboats, the Saturn 5 rocket, and owned a gas station before becoming a professor, where his deep love of teaching led him to the position of Chairman of the Business Department at Lycoming College. After raising a family and 30 years of teaching, Bruce and Debbie retired to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. There they spent their time between sailing and camping adventures and spoiling their dog Lolita.

Although over the years he enjoyed sailing, flying, camping, fishing, hang gliding, hiking, cross country skiing, camping, scuba diving, running, photography, cooking and spending time at his cabin on Pine Creek, he enjoyed them most with Debbie or his family by his side.

He believed life was an adventure best traveled together and from the oil fields of Venezuela to sunsets over the Albemarle Sound, he embraced every minute of it.

Due to Bruce’s widespread family and friends, a celebration of life will be held in Pennsylvania at a date and location to be determined and published in the near future.

In honor of his passion for teaching and education, we ask that donations be made to the Imagination Library providing free books to children (https://donate.imaginationlibrary.com).

Dear Debbie,
I was very sorry to find this obituary today. Bruce and I grew apart over the years. But we were once closest of friends. It saddens me we were never able to spend time later to reminisce about growing up together in San Tome. As I get older I think more frequently about my childhood, and that brings back memories of Bruce. We were Cub Scouts together and later Boy Scouts. His family took me on wonderful trips to fish the Aguaro River and to stay at the executive guest house in Puerto La Cruz. We also learned to ride motor scooters together. But you know all this since you were there too. Please keep me posted about details of the memorial service in Pennsylvania.
Best regards,
Johnny M.
